The second in the Art Marvik marine mystery crime novels, Dangerous Cargo, opens in the Dorset Coastal Town of Swanage

Dangerous Cargo opens in the Dorset coastal town of Swanage where former Royal Marine Commando, turned marine investigator, Art Marvik, finds himself on a new assignment for the UK’s National Intelligence Marine Squad. (NIMS). It’s his second mission for NIMS (his first was in Silent Running published in 2015) and he’s detailed to attend the funeral of a man whose body was found washed up on a beach on the Isle of Wight in January only he’d been officially declared dead fifty-five years earlier. 

Swanage on the Dorset Coast, location for Art Marvik crime novel, Dangerous Cargo

Swanage Bay where Art Marvik anchors up in Dangerous Cargo

My research took me to Swanage, incidentally at the same time they were filming the television production Peter Pan, you can just see the ship they used situated at the end of the pier in the above photograph.  Marvik’s sturdy motor cruiser is moored up to the west of the pier in Swanage Bay.

Marvik is quickly drawn into a mission that uncovers deceit, corruption and murder spanning over half a century and the race to find a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to make sure that the sins of the past stay precisely where they should, in the past.

I'll be posting more locations shots in some future blogs.
