Meet DI Andy Horton in Footsteps on the Shore - the sixth in the Marine Mystery Series by Pauline Rowson

Friday the thirteenth begins badly for DI Andy Horton when he wakes to find his Harley has been vandalized and his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, has returned early from her secondment to HQ. Then, convicted murderer, Luke Felton, released on licence, is reported missing and a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get a grip on either case, he’s called to a house where a woman he’d only met the day before has been brutally murdered. Is missing Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is it his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective.

Booklist USA says, 'Andy Horton is an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms.

'Deserves mention in the same breath as works in the upper echelon of American procedurals (those by Ed McBain or Joseph Wambaugh for example) and their British counterparts, including the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey.'   

Pauline Rowson's  novels have received critical acclaim in the UK, USA and Commonwealth where they have been hailed as 'exemplary police procedurals', 'cleverly plotted, complex and multi-layered.' Her novels have also been translated into several languages.

Pauline Rowson lives in Hampshire and has been long listed for the Dagger in the Library Award and her thriller, In Cold Daylight was voted the third most popular novel for World Book Day 2008.
