On location with Inspector Andy Horton in a new investigation Lethal Waves

Here are some photographs behind the story for Inspector Andy Horton crime novel number 13, Lethal Waves, published in 2017 by Severn House.

The DI Andy Horton crime novels have been hailed as "compelling," "multi-layered and complex" "a great read for mystery lovers".

Condor Ferry Sailing out of Portsmouth
The Commodore Clipper ferry, which sails from Portsmouth to the Channel Islands and France, is so much an integral part of Portsmouth and the Solent, the setting for my Detective Inspector DI Andy Horton crime novels, that it was inevitable I would feature it at some stage.  The perfect opportunity came when Andy Horton, in the search for the truth behind his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago discovers a clue that leads him to the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey. Hence him being there when the body on the ferry is found.

Condor Commodore Clipper Ferry in Lethal Waves
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, close to where Horton lives on board his small yacht in Southsea Marina.

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.

Portsmouth, Inspector Andy Horton crime novels
All my crime novels are set against the backdrop of the sea and I particularly love that self-contained feel of island settings. Andy Horton’s patch is Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, both islands, but I fell in love with Guernsey when I visited it on holiday.
