Pauline Rowson to launch new DI Andy Horton Crime Novel with BBC Radio Solent on 26 January

For those early risers, I'm on the Julian Clegg Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Solent on Thursday 26 January at 6.45 a.m. to launch the new DI Andy Horton marine mystery crime novel, A Killing Coast, published in hardcover on 26th and to talk about my appearance at Portsmouth Central Library in support of National Libraries Day on Saturday 4 February between 10.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m.

A Killing Coast is the seventh in the DI Horton series of Marine Mystery crime novels set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England published by Severn House in the UK on 26 January 2012 and in the USA on 1 May 2012. 

I'm delighted to be involved in 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 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 023 9281 9311 or All welcome.

“Deserves mention in the same breath as the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey.” Booklist Starred Review of Footsteps on the Shore

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.

"Andy Horton is an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms." Booklist
