A Killing Coast now available in paperbackA Killing Coast, the seventh marine mystery crime novel featuring DI Andy Horton, by British crime writer, Pauline Rowson, has now been published in paperback.
A Killing Coast, like others in the Horton series, has been highly acclaimed in the UK, Commonwealth and the USA where it has been published in hardcover and as an e book by Severn House. It has also recently been released as an unabridged audio book, published by Isis.
Pauline Rowson has been hailed as "redefining the genre of police drama” by setting it against the atmospheric backdrop of the ever changing sea. Her cops are tough yet fallible and the series contains a catalogue of compelling crimes, a detective with a complex past history, a tough work environment, romantic entanglements and political intrigue played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of Portsmouth and the Solent.
Publishers Weekly says, " Meticulous police work leads Horton to a particularly callous and ruthless killer as well as theft and blackmail…includes a few unexpected twists.” While US reviewer, Booklist claims it is "'Multilayered, twisted, and complex...with a surprising conclusion. A satisfying read."
When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though, to his dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his ongoing investigation into the disappearance of his mother over thirty years ago to cloud his judgement. With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job.
