DI Horton - A Killing Coast - Location Shots and Book Award

A Killing Coast, DI Andy Horton crime novel number seven, is set like the others in the series in the Solent area on the South Coast of England in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.

I'm pleased that A Killing Coast has been nominated for the E Dunnit Book Award which will be judged at the end of May, with the winner being announced at CrimeFest, where I will be appearing on a panel. CrimeFest takes place at the Royal Marriot Hotel, Bristol from 30 May to 2 June 2013 and the eDunnit Award is for the best crime fiction ebook first published in both hardcopy and in electronic format in the British Isles in 2012.

A Killing Coast Location Shots

When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death but soon he's proved wrong.
His investigation takes him on board millionaire Russell Glenn's Superyacht at Oyster Quays (Gunwharf Quays Portsmouth) behind the pilot boat in the foreground

And to Ventnor Haven on the Isle of Wight

And to Oyster Quays again in Portsmouth where he's sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds.

Which leads to a race to find a brutal killer and a dangerous climax

'Meticulous police work leads Horton to a particularly callous and ruthless killer as well as theft and blackmail…includes a few unexpected twists.” Publishers Weekly

'If you like police procedurals with a twist, plenty of red herrings, and a strong sense of location, you'll like these.' Mysteries in Paradise (Australia)

Available from all major book retailers, independent bookshops, online bookstores and on loan from libraries. Also available as an e book, on Kindle, Nook and Kobo from 1 October 2013.
