Pauline Rowson and Matt Wingett
In this entertaining book my rugged and flawed detective, Inspector Andy Horton rubs shoulders with some of the greats in literature who all have Portsmouth connections: Charles Dickens, Beatrix Potter, P. G Wodehouse, H. G. Wells, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and more...
In this book, among other interesting facts, you will find out:
- Which Portsmouth woman wrote America's first ever best seller - I'll give you a clue, she has the same surname as me 'Rowson'!
- What H. G. Wells hated about Portsmouth
- Where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first set foot in Southsea
