Pauline Rowson author of the popular Inspector Andy Horton police procedural crime novels, the Art Marvik mysteries and standalone thrillers set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England
What's on in April 2018 for crime author Pauline Rowson
Adventure, mystery and heroes have always fascinated and thrilled Pauline, that and her love of the sea has led her to create her exciting and gripping range of crime novels. Pauline Rowson is the author of nineteen crime novels, fourteen featuring the rugged and flawed Portsmouth detective, Inspector Andy Horton; three in the mystery series featuring Art Marvik, the troubled former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) and two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill.
"Pauline Rowson is one of the most talented crime and thriller writers in the UK. By choosing locations and plot lines that are unique to her 'marine mysteries' she has set herself apart from the tried and tested formulae within the genre." The Book Depository
My 1940 set murder mystery play, MURDER AT THE PELICAN CLUB is to be performed by the Winterbourne Players, Bristol, England from 22 to 24 November 2018.
This brand new detective play, Murder At The Pelican Club, is an exciting 1940s murder mystery in the vein of the classic crime thrillers of the 20th century, an Agatha Christie style detective drama that has audiences guessing ‘who done it.’ Written in a serious vein but with a touch of humour, the play takes place in the Pelican Nightclub and Restaurant in November 1940.
It can be performed on stage, or in a restaurant with the audience all round. Only one set is needed and seven actors. If performed in a restaurant, other supporting actors can be planted in the audience as diners if required. And the audience can be involved in guessing who done it.
The Winterbourne Players is an amateur dramatics group, based in Winterbourne, Bristol. They present two productions a year, one in May and a second in November. In MURDER AT THE PE…

During the month there will be extracts from both crime novels and a chance to watch the book trailers but you can skip the blogs if you wish and go right to the appropriate book page on my website for more details of both novels.
"A great read for mystery lovers with plenty to keep you guessing until the last moment." Crime Book Club
And here is a taster of the beginning of The Suffocating Sea
The blue pulsating lights of the fire engines radiated out of the dense freezing fog like revolving spotlights on a stage as Sergeant Cantelli swung into the car park at Horsea Marina. Inspector Andy Horton shivered. A cold, clammy feeling fingered its way up his spine. He’d been to hundreds of fires in his career, …
