Blood on the Sand, the fifth Inspector Horton crime novel to be published in paperback in September

Blood on the Sand, the fifth in the Inspector Andy Horton marine mystery crime series is to be published in trade paperback in September by Severn House.

First published in hardcover in the UK in February and the USA in May 2010, I am pleased that Blood on the Sand has received good reviews in both countries.

In the USA, Booklist said, 'This is another solid entry in a consistently well written series. Like Ed McBain, Rowson works many subtle variations on the procedural formula (including very interesting relationships between Andy and a couple of his superiors). A definite winner in the crowded field of British procedurals.'

In the UK, Eurocrime said, 'The very tight plotting was very impressive and make me want to look out for further books by this author. A very enjoyable read.'

This is the fifth in the series and I'm hoping that the sixth, Footsteps on the Shore, will be published early in 2011. I am now writing the seventh in the Andy Horton series.

So here are the Andy Horton marine mystery crime novels (police procedurals) in order:

  • Tide of Death
  • Deadly Waters
  • The Suffocating Sea
  • Dead Man's Wharf
  • Blood on the Sand
  • Footsteps on the Shore ( not yet published.)
