The Duver, Bembridge Harbour, Isle of Wight

Bembridge Harbour is a small harbour on the Isle of Wight and is the setting for two of my crime novels, my thriller In For The Kill and one of the DI Andy Horton crime novels, Blood on The Sand.

In In For the Kill, Alex Albury, newly released from the Isle of Wight prison returns to live on his family's houseboat in Bembridge Harbour. Alex is intent on finding the man who stole his identity and framed him for fraud and embezzlement. All he knows is his name: James Andover. But who is he? Where is he? Alex embarks on his quest to track down Andover, but with the trail cold he is frustrated at every turn. Worse, he finds himself under suspicion by the police. The pressure is on and Alex has to unearth the answers and quick. But time is running out. For Alex the future looks bleak and soon he is left with the option - to kill or be killed.

Blood on the Sand is the fifth in the DI Andy Horton series. In this Horton novel, Andy is on holiday and has sailed into Bembridge Marina on a cold January day. His holiday peace is shattered when stepping out across an abandoned golf course on the Isle of Wight, (the Duver) he finds himself facing a distraught young woman with a gun in her hand leaning over a corpse in one of the discarded bunkers. When she professes to be the dead man’s sister and psychic, Horton’s old adversary, DCI Birch, is convinced she is mentally disturbed and the killer, but Horton is not so sure. Soon he is uncovering a web of intrigue that ripples down the years, and which someone is determined should never be revealed.

Both the above are available as e books on all e readers including Kindle, Nook and Kobo. They are also available in paperback. Blood on the Sand is also published in Large Print and as an unabridged audio book.
