Great interview yesterday on BBC Radio Solent talking to Julian Clegg about A Killing Coast the new DI Horton crime novel

I enjoyed the early morning interview with Julian Clegg on BBC Radio Solent yesterday on the day of the launch of the new DI Andy Horton marine mystery crime novel, A Killing Coast, set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.

Thought I'd share some photos of the interview here on my blog. If I look a bit bleary eyed it's because I had to get up at 5.15 a.m. to get there! But well worth it.

 When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though, to his dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his ongoing investigation into the disappearance of his mother over thirty years ago to cloud 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 does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job.

I'll be helping to celebrate National Libraries Day on Saturday 4 February when I will be at Portsmouth Central Library between 10.30am to 12.30pm.

I'll be talking about my marine mystery crime novels and thrillers which are set in the Solent area, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, and there will be the opportunity to win signed copies of my books with a murder mystery quiz hunt for clues around the library, and the chance to be named as a character in one of my forthcoming DI Horton crime novels.

National Libraries Day is a celebration of libraries across the UK. Events and activities will take place in a variety of libraries including in schools, colleges, universities and public libraries in the UK in the week leading up to and on National Libraries Day on Saturday 4 February.

Tickets cost £3.00 and can be purchased at any library in Portsmouth or by contacting
