The DI Andy Horton Crime Novels - cleverly plotted, gripping, 


Pauline Rowson's Portsmouth-set mystery plots are inventive and exciting, gripping but not gruesome, and full of thrilling twists and turns. They take us to the deepest, darkest corners of human behaviour but ultimately lead us into the light.

Her novels combine character-driven, emotional punch with the scale and complexity of plotting.  Our intrepid hero on this journey is Detective Inspector Andy Horton. A man very much defined by a tormented past, but with hopes for his future.

Set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England, Pauline Rowson's DI Andy Horton police procedural crime series has been hailed as "exemplary," "multi-layered" "cleverly plotted" with an "especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage"

An Inspector Andy Horton crime novel  - published on 1 May 2019

 When Horton is assigned the case of a missing person: Jasper Kenton, a private investigator, the formidable Eunice Swallows, Kenton’s business partner, seems unwilling to give Horton any useful information, and Horton – irritated at being assigned such a low-ranking investigation – suspects the disappearance has a mundane explanation. Either Kenton is with a woman, or he’s stolen from a client and absconded with the money.  But when Kenton’s car turns up, and a shocking discovery is made, things turn serious. Immediately, Horton finds himself embroiled in an investigation that has major personal ramifications, and one in which he has no choice but to withhold vital information. As he struggles to crack the case, he knows it is only a question of time before someone discovers he’s kept silent, and when that’s revealed, his part in hindering a major investigation will end his career
