Featuring two crime novels set in March, Footsteps on the Shore and Dangerous Cargo
It’s March and Inspector Andy Horton has an unusual case to solve in FOOTSTEPS ON THE SHORE.
Friday the thirteenth begins badly for DI Andy Horton when he wakes to find his Harley has been vandalized and his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, has returned early from her secondment to HQ. Then, convicted murderer, Luke Felton, released on licence, is reported missing and a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get a grip on either case, he’s called to a house where a woman he’d only met the day before has been brutally murdered. Is missing Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is it his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective …
"Horton presses on to clear up a skein of crime as tangled as one of the harbour’s ancient fishing nets. Rowson’s latest should please both Andy Horton fans and puzzle aficionados. " Kirkus
'This police procedural reminded me in one aspect, of the mysteries by R.D. Wingfield, creator of Jack Frost... with all the interaction between the different detectives. A very enjoyable read.' Eurocrime
'A detective novel in the tradition of Rankin and Harvey. Like Rebus, Rowson’s DI Andy Horton, if not a loose cannon, is a detective who does not always work within the rules. As with all Rowson’s novels the ending is dramatic and deeply menacing. If you are a fan of traditional detective fiction in a vivid setting that makes you believe that you are there, you will love this one.' James Morley, Mystery People Magazine.
Marvik is on a mission to solve a fifty year old mystery in DANGEROUS CARGO
'Rowson’s superhero, Art Marvik, returns in another pulse-pounding adventure. Delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading.' Booklist
'Marvik's second outing is even more muscular than his debut, as Rowson edges her detective puzzles ever closer to thriller territory.' Kirkus Reviews USA
"Dangerous Cargo is the sort of book where you can’t look away for a second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review.
