What makes an entertaining series of mystery crime novels?
Women readers often tell me they
are in love with DI Andy Horton (join the queue) and men like him
because he's an action guy - he's fit, fearless and forty.
Rugged and flawed Andy Horton is a maverick cop who is tough on villains and prepared to take risks in his search for justice. He's been raised in children's homes after his mother abandoned him as a child. He has a desperate need to belong and yet is always on the outside. Being alone is his greatest fear, yet he is alone.The novels are set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area on the South Coast of England. Estranged from his wife, Catherine, who does her best to prevent him from seeing his young daughter, Emma, Andy Horton lives alone on his yacht in Southsea Marina and rides a Harley Davidson.
