Lost Voyage, number three in the Art Marvik thriller series


Lost Voyage an Art Marvik Mystery by Pauline RowsonMarvik faces a desperate battle to save others from a ruthless assassin who will stop at nothing in order to protect the secret of the Mary Jo’s last voyage from ever being exposed

Lost Voyage, the third in the crime series to feature former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik, an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS)

 "Plenty of action, I didn't want to put the book down. A good read for mystery/ thriller fans." Net Galley


Marvik is surprised to receive an unexpected summons to meet Helen Shannon, a woman he helped on his first mission. When a body is discovered in her flat, Marvik is convinced that Helen is being framed for murder, but why and by whom? Before he has a chance to follow it up, the head of the National Marine Intelligence Squad, (NIMS) Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder, asks Marvik to investigate the disappearance of a salvage vessel, the Mary Jo, which went missing in 2003.  As Marvik delves into the past, it becomes clear that he faces a desperate battle to keep Helen and others safe from a ruthless assassin – one who will stop at nothing in order to protect the secret of the Mary Jo’s last voyage from ever being exposed.

Reviews for Lost Voyage


"The central plot is very engaging and Rowson ably keeps the reader guessing as to what really happened to the Mary Jo and why. Marvik’s investigation proceeds in a believable manner and the pace steadily picks up as the story progresses, and the book builds to a tense climax. Marvik is an interesting and credible central character. He is a loner who can take care of himself in a fight, but he is no ‘superhero’ and there is a nice sense of vulnerability about him. There are also interesting references to the mysterious death of Marvik’s parents in the past, which I suspect will feature in future books. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it should appeal to most readers who like British crime stories with a strong regional feel." Net Galley

"Rowson launches Marvik and his pal Strathen (Dangerous Cargo, 2016, etc.) onto stormy seas, forcing them to navigate between ruthless killers who want to cover their tracks and equally unprincipled business owners who want to protect their assets, all the while keeping the increasingly restless Helen safe from danger. Rowson strikes a nice balance between thriller and puzzler in the third in the series."' Kirkus Reviews

Reviews for the Art Marvik Mystery Series

"Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik."

"A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good new series—action fans need Marvik on their radar." Booklist (USA)

"Delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading." Booklist

"Marvik's second outing is even more muscular than his debut, as Rowson edges her detective puzzles ever closer to thriller territory." Kirkus Reviews USA

"I loved this fast-paced story with enough twists and turns in a plot that kept me guessing right to the last page. If you enjoy an exciting crime novel, where you can rush breathlessly alongside the hero as he unravels a complicated mystery while fending off one danger after another, then you should give this one a try. It won't disappoint." Rena George 5* Amazon Review

"Dangerous Cargo is the sort of book where you can’t look away for a second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review


Marvik is tough, highly trained, fearless, intelligent and fit.
