The third Art Marvik mystery thriller, Lost Voyage, by Pauline Rowson to be published in paperback
Lost Voyage, like the others in the Marvik series, Silent Running and Dangerous Cargo, is set against the backdrop of the sea. In Lost Voyage Marvik's mission takes him along the south coast of England to the Severn Sisters cliffs, Beachy Head and the coastal towns of Newhaven and Eastbourne.
Art Marvik, former Royal Marine Commando, is surprised by a late-night summons to meet Helen Shannon, a woman he helped on his first mission. He's convinced that Helen Shannon is being framed for murder after a body is found in her flat. And when he is asked to investigate the disappearance in 2003 of a salvage vessel, the Mary Jo, it soon becomes clear that that there is a ruthless assassin at large - one who is determined to protect the secret of the Mary Jo's last voyage.
'Marvik is an interesting and credible central character. He is a loner who can take care of himself in a fight, but he is no ‘superhero’ and there is a nice sense of vulnerability about him. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it should appeal to most readers who like British crime stories with a strong regional feel." Net Galley
While reviewer Kirkus says, 'Rowson strikes a nice balance between thriller and puzzler in the third in the series.'
Lost Voyage is available from all booksellers, on line and also for loan in UK, USA and Commonwealth Libraries.
