A taste for murder at Bishops Waltham with crime author Pauline Rowson

Lethal Waves, an Inspector Andy Horton Mystery by Pauline Rowson

DI Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. There doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances. It's not Horton's case. But as  soon as Horton returns to Portsmouth he's called in to investigate the death of a vagrant found lying partially covered under a rotting houseboat. This time, it’s clearly murder.

Troubled by the many unanswered questions surrounding both deaths, Horton must call upon all his skills and intuition to solve a complex case, uncovering dark secrets that have led to such lethal waves of destruction.

"Compelling," "multi-layered and complex" "a great read for mystery lovers".

Dangerous Cargo, an Art Marvik Mystery by Pauline Rowson

The Art Marvik crime novels featuring the former Royal Marine Commando, now working undercover for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad, have been hailed as, 'Action-packed'.  Booklist USA says, '"Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good new series—action fans need Marvik on their radar.'  Dangerous Cargo the second in the Art Marvik series is published in paperback on 28 April 2017.
