Announcing the title and blurb of DI Andy Horton number seven

As many of you know I have agonized over the title of the DI Andy Horton novel I've just finished writing, number seven in the series, just as I agonized over all titles except for Dead Man's Wharf, and Tide of Death, which came instantly to me.

So now I have a title for the next DI Andy Horton.  It might change by the time of publication, of course. My editior might not like it. If it does change I'll let you know but here it is for now.

A Killing Coast – a DI Andy Horton crime novel ( number 7 in the series)

When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, DI Horton has no evidence to suggest it’s murder even though there are some peculiar factors surrounding the death. A visit to the dead man’s flat reassures Horton; they’re looking at an accidental death. Soon though, to Horton’s dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team, Superintendent Uckfield, coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his investigations into the disappearance of his mother over thirty years ago to cloud his judgement. That, and the arrival of a Superyacht in the harbour and the re-acquaintance with a former girlfriend, has clouded his judgement. With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only is it a race against time to find a brutal killer before he can strike again but Horton now has a desperate need to prove to himself and others that he is still up to the job.
