More locations that inspire me - Inspector Andy Horton's patch - Portsmouth and the Solent

Here are a couple of spectacular photographs taken by Peter Rocchiccioli when I was on board the Wightlink ferry, St Clare, which travels from Portsmouth to Fishbourne, doing a book signing, organised by the Hayling Island Bookshop.

This is Andy Horton's country, the Solent on the south coast of England and the setting for my marine mystery crime novels.

This picture is taken from the upper deck of the St Clare and looks down on the Town Camber and across to the Cathedral in Old Portsmouth.  You'll find the location in many of the Horton novels, but particularly in Deadly Waters and The Suffocating Sea.

And this picture is of a ferry sailing through the narrow entrance to Portsmouth Harbour.  It's a fascinating and vibrant area with lots going on, including mystery, murder and intrigue....!!
