September - four DI Andy Horton mysteries re-released, a new 1950 set historical mystery and a talk

September sees the re-release of four of my Inspector Andy Horton crime novels as ebooks on Amazon Kindle and Kobo, DEATH LIES BENEATH,(8) A KILLING COAST, (9) UNDERCURRENT (10) and DEATH SURGE (11). In addition FOOTSTEPS ON THE SHORE (9) was re-released earlier this year. These DI Andy Horton mysteries are also all available in paperback and as unabridged audio books.

Some Inspector Andy Horton Mysteries

There are fourteen in the DI Andy Horton series with DEAD PASSAGE, (14) having been published in paperback and as an ebook in October 2018.

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.


On 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 front

I'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!
