In Footsteps on the Shore Inspector Andy Horton is called to a house next to Portchester Castle, where a woman he’d only met the day before, Venetia Trotman, has been brutally murdered. Horton had been intending to buy a boat from her which had belonged to her late husband to replace his small boat which had been torched by a villain with Horton only just managing to escape with his life. Horton has been living on board his boat in Southsea Marina since his estrangement from his wife, Catherine.
Added to this is the return of Horton’s nit-picking boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss from her secondment at HQ and she’s intent on making Horton’s life as difficult as possible. Someone else also seems set on troubling Horton when he finds a symbol scratched on his Harley Davidson. Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective …
There are many twists and turns in this novel with a hint of international crime behind it but I will say no more. I wouldn’t want to spoil your enjoyment of it.
