Fatal Catch opens on 12 December with DI Horton being called out to examine a gruesome catch by two fishermen: a human hand. Is it that of missing violent criminal Alfie Wright – or is he the killer? And where is the rest of the corpse? Soon Horton finds himself immersed in a complex case where everyone has a reason to lie and no one is who they seem. His instincts tell him to trust no one and believe nothing; he’s not sure though whether this time he’ll succeed …

The story behind the crime novel In Cold Daylight


In Cold Daylight a crime novel by Pauline RowsonThe idea for my standalone crime novel IN COLD DAYLIGHT came not this time from a location, which is usually where I get my ideas from, but from an overheard conversation. This particular conversation took place at the fire station where my husband, a fire fighter worked. He was at the time on Red Watch at Southsea in Portsmouth (now he is retired). It was after the shift had ended.

The watch were discussing the unusually high number of their colleagues who had sadly contracted cancer. Many believed the cancer was caused through exposure to hazardous chemicals in the line of duty but couldn't say which particular incident or series of incidents had triggered it. The cancers were mainly those of the throat, esophagus and ears, all areas left unprotected at that time by their headgear. In fact, my husband used to say that the only way he knew just hot the fire was, and therefore how it was progressing, was if his ears started to feel as if they were burning!

The DI Andy Horton crime novels in order


Should I read the Inspector Andy Horton crime novels in order?

The answer is no. They can be read in any order because each is a standalone mystery. In each DI Andy Horton (and there are now 13 in the series) there is a new investigation for the flawed and rugged detective but there is also the drama of his unfolding personal life and his quest to discover the truth behind his mother's disappearance (Jennifer Horton) thirty years ago. It can never be determined which book in the series a reader might buy or borrow from a library so I need to weave in Andy Horton's back story and his personal quest enough so that the new reader can pick it up but not too much so that it bores the reader who has read the Horton series from the beginning. Some readers have told me that they've discovered Andy Horton in a later book in the series and then having done so have gone back to the beginning and read them in sequence.

There are now now fourteen in the DI Andy Horton crime series with DEAD PASSAGE Waves, the latest published in 2019

The Inspector Andy Horton crime novels are available as paperbacks, e books, on Amazon Kindle and Kobo, as unabridged audio books and in large print.

What's on in December 2018


The Suffocating Sea, Fatal Catch, In Cold DaylightDecember, the run up to Christmas and often the winding down of work. And while, for me, December is a quiet month in terms of talks it is still a busy month for writing. In fact the holiday period is a good time for me to write and usually highly productive.

In forthcoming blogs I'll be featuring the story behind each of the December set crime novels, some videos and extracts of two Inspector Andy Horton crime novels THE SUFFOCATING SEA and FATAL CATCH and my crime thriller novel IN COLD DAYLIGHT.
