A great review from America

My latest crime novel Dead Man’s Wharf was published in America on 1 July 2009 in hardcover. I'm delighted that it immediately received an excellent review from Kirkus Book Reviews.

Kirkus Reviews is published 24 times annually, with nearly 5,000 book reviews each year. It is one of the most prestigious names in the publishing industry and is read by publishers, libraries, agents, film and television studio producers, as well as commercial booksellers. I've put the link to their web site here but what I didn't realise is that it's a subscription only web site, so you won't be able to read the review. That might not be a bad thing as it does rather give the plot away.
Here, however, is what they say about Dead Man's Wharf:

‘Rowson turns out an exemplary procedural with the requisite plot twists, double-crosses and all loose ends tied up neatly in a sailor’s knot.’

Dead Man’s Wharf was published in hardcover in the UK in April 2009.

It is the fourth in the marine mystery series of crime novels to feature the flawed and rugged Inspector Andy Horton, whose patch is Portsmouth CID on the south coast of England. It is available from on line bookstores and can be ordered through any bookshop.
