Severn House Publishers buy World English Language Rights to Second in Art Marvik Crime Series by Pauline Rowson

Severn House Publishers has bought World English language rights to the second in the series of marine crime novels by Pauline Rowson  which feature former marine commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik. Dangerous Cargo is to be published in spring 2016.

Pauline Rowson is author of the popular marine mystery crime series featuring the flawed and rugged Portsmouth based detective DI Andy Horton  also published by Severn House. The DI Andy Horton crime novels have recently been optioned by top UK production company, Lime Pictures, who are seeking to bring the enigmatic sailing detective to the TV screens.

The first in the new series featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik, Silent Running was published in the UK in March 2015 and in the USA in September 2015. It has been hailed in the US by Booklist as 'A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.'

Edwin Buckhalter, Chairman of Severn House, says, ‘Dangerous Cargo, like the first in the series, Silent Running, has all the hallmarks of a good Rowson novel, the setting and atmosphere, the sea, interesting characters and an intricate, complex plot. It will certainly excite her existing fans and bring in  new readers.’

All Pauline Rowson's crime novels are set against the backdrop of the sea.  She is author of thirteen crime novels, eleven in the DI Andy Horton series  with the twelfth, Fatal Catch, being published in the UK in September 2015.  Her work has received critical acclaim in the UK, USA and Commonwealth where her novels have been hailed as "exemplary police procedurals”, "cleverly plotted, complex and multi-layered.” Her novels have also been translated into other languages including Chinese.

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.

Pauline Rowson says, 'I’m thrilled that Severn House are publishing the second in the Art Marvik series as well as my DI Andy Horton crime novels.'
