Shroud of Evil, new DI Horton crime novel now published in the USA and released as an e book

Shroud of Evil - a DI Andy Horton crime novel by Pauline RowsonThe latest in the popular crime series featuring the Portsmouth based copper, the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton written by Pauline Rowson is published by Severn House in hardcover in the USA and is released as an ebook on 1 August.  It was published in the UK and Commonwealth on 30 April 2014.

Shroud of Evil, the eleventh in the DI Andy Horton series, has received glowing reviews in America ahead of its publication and has been snapped up by the Rights Center as being ideal material for a television series and film

Publishers Weekly says, "A compelling protagonist and mounting suspense make the book hard to put down," while Booklist reviewer hails Shroud of Evil as "A swirling cyclone of action leading to a shocking conclusion that will leave readers eager for the next installment in this always-surprising series."

Shroud of Evil has been described on Amazon as a "A traditional whodunit with modern twists and realistic procedural content."

The DI Andy Horton novels have been compared by reviewers with those in the "upper echelon of American procedurals by Ed McBain and Joseph Wambaugh and their British counterparts, including the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey."

Rowson has been hailed as "redefining the genre of the police drama” by setting it against the atmospheric backdrop of the ever changing sea. Her cops are tough yet fallible; they’re forced to protect vulnerable citizens who despise the law more than the pimps and perps that have entrapped them.

The DI Andy Horton crime series delivers a continuing narrative that includes compelling crimes, 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. It has the pedigree and essential ingredients to shine as a prime-time, high-end TV adaptation.
