New editions of DI Andy Horton crime novels, talks, a play and tickets on sale for CSI Portsmouth

There's a lot happening in October. This month sees the publication of A Killing Coast (DI Andy Horton 7) in Large Print and Undercurrent (DI Andy Horton 9) in paperback.

Undercurrent available in paperback

Naval historian Dr Douglas Spalding is found dead in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard. It looks like suicide but Horton goes out on a limb to prove otherwise. Soon he's embroiled in a cover up at the highest level.

"As usual, Rowson offers up a thorny, multifaceted plot; a profusion of unusual twists; a likable yet complex hero; and plenty of fast-paced, knuckle-biting action." Booklist

A Killing Coast  published in Large Print on 30 October

An investigation into a body found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour throws DI Andy Horton's capabilities into question. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but now he also has to prove he's still up to the job.

"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 on line and from your local bookshop. Also available for loan in libraries in the UK, USA and Commonwealth.

And in a new departure for me I'm delighted to announce that my  murder mystery play, Murder at the Pelican Club, is being premiered in Kent at the end of October.

Act One Drama Group Presents - Murder at the Pelican Club

30/31 October and 1 November

Be transported back to November 1940 and the Pelican nightclub and restaurant in Liverpool during the Blitz. Enjoy the live music while the murder takes place and see how the well drawn characters deal with the twists and turns of the plot. The village hall becomes the nightclub and snacks will be on sale to accompany the drink you can bring with you. If you really want to get involved come in 1940s dress! Miss it if you dare!

There are several talks on the agenda in October as well as a radio interview with the lovely Julian Clegg on his breakfast show on BBC Radio Solent.  And if you're a fan of CSI then tickets for the very popular CSI Portsmouth event where crime fiction meets crime fact, are on sale from 29 September, but buy them soo,n if you're keen to come along, because tickets sell fast!

In between all this activity I'll be knuckling down to writing DI Andy Horton number thirteen. The first draft is almost completed but there are several revisions yet to be done.
