Review for DI Andy Horton crime novel, Death Surge, on Amazon

This extract from a reader's review for Death Surge, the tenth DI Andy Horton police procedural crime novel is a good description of my flawed hero.

"Andy Horton is a strong hero, but he is also flawed. He isn't always sure what to do next, and some of his decisions turn out to be wrong, sometimes with tragic consequences. This could make him seem weak, but Rowson steers a clear path, giving us a protagonist that we want to cheer on even when he makes a mistake.

All of Rowson's novels are set around the south coast of the UK, and the sea is an integral character in this story, particularly given the focus on sailing. I found the setting brought the story to life in a really interesting way, giving it both atmosphere and drama.

This is one of the best Andy Horton novels I've read. I'm very much looking forward to the next one in the series, 'Shroud of Evil'."

The investigation is ranked low priority by Horton’s boss, Detective Chief Inspector Lorraine Bliss, who like others believes Johnnie has probably gone off with a woman.But events take a very different turn when the charred remains of a body are discovered in one of the disused tunnels at the Hilsea Lines in Portsmouth.
