'Footsteps on the Shore, is a detective novel in the tradition of Rankin and Harvey. Like Rebus, Rowson’s DI Andy Horton, if not a loose cannon, is a detective who does not always work within the rules. As with all Rowson’s novels the ending is dramatic and deeply menacing. If you are a fan of traditional detective fiction in a vivid setting that makes you believe that you are there, you will love this one.' Mystery Magazine.
FOOTSTEPS ON THE SHORE is available in paperback, as an ebook, on Amazon Kindle and on Kobo in Large Print and as unabridged audio book narrated by Gordon Griffin. Also available for loan in libraries in the UK, Commonwealth and the USA.
