The atmospheric mystery series set in 1950s England features Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Alun Ryga who teams up with former war photographer Eva Paisley.

Scotland Yard were frequently called in to investigate murder cases around the UK in the 1950s so rather than have the novel (and series) rooted in London this meant I could move my detective around the country to help solve coastal crimes.  I wanted to feature the sea in my crime novels - my trademark or brand, as all my novels are set against the backdrop of the sea - so I created a character with an intimate knowledge of the sea, a former Merchant Seaman, Inspector Alun Ryga.

From the first I didn't want to make Ryga an action hero like Art Marvik.  I also sought to differ him from DI Andy Horton, an instinctive copper with lots of personal baggage, intuitive, rugged and flawed with a deep sense of justice.  Neither did I want someone who had been hailed as a war hero in the traditional sense, but instead a quiet, unseen hero. I chose, therefore, to make Ryga a former German prisoner-of-war.'

In his first mystery DEATH IN THE COVE, Ryga is sent to the Island of Portland, Dorset to investigate the murder of a man found in the isolated Church Ope Cove. DEATH IN THE COVE is also available as an audio book and in paperback, as an ebook and on Amazon Kindle.
