Some Inspector Andy Horton Mysteries
Also in September the publication of my first historical crime novel, DEATH IN THE COVE
I'm also delighted that September 2019 will see the publication of my first historical crime novel, DEATH IN THE COVE.
DEATH IN THE COVE is set in 1950 England, a country still struggling after six years of war in the grip of austerity and rationing. It introduces Inspector Alun Ryga, recently promoted at Scotland Yard, a former Merchant Navy seaman and German prisoner-of-war who is sent to the Island of Portland in Dorset to solve an unusual and baffling case.
DEATH IN THE COVE is published in paperback, e book, on Kindle and Kobo and as an audio book on 26 September 2019. It is available to pre-order.
When the body of a man dressed in a pinstriped suit is discovered by war photographer, Eva Paisley, in a secluded bay on Portland Island, Dorset, Inspector Alun Ryga of Scotland Yard is despatched to investigate. Recently promoted, the thoughtful, observant Ryga, is on his first solo investigation outside of London, and is keen to prove his worth. Ignoring the warnings of the local police inspector, and the Dorset Chief Constable, that his trust in Eva Paisley is misjudged, Ryga quickly realises that her observations could provide the breakthrough he needs in a complex murder investigation and the answer to the haunting circumstances that have sent the man in the pinstriped suit to his death.
TalksOn 19 September 2019 I will be entertaining members of Westbourne WI talking about the secrets of successful crime writing and how I plot, research and write my crime novels.
On the writing frontI'll be putting the final finishing touches to Inspector Andy Horton number fifteen and revising the second in the 1950 set Inspector Ryga series, set in Newhaven, East Sussex.
So, plenty happening in September!
