Read an extract of Inspector Andy Horton crime novel, DEATH LIES BENEATH


Death Lies Beneath an Inspector Andy Horton MysteryDEATH LIES BENEATH is number eight in the Detective Inspector Andy Horton series of police procedural mysteries. It is set in June, so I thought it appropriate to feature it here on my blog this month. Like most of my crime novels it is inspired by locations in the area where I live and where the novels are set, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. It is also inspired by topical crimes. In this case, metal thefts, fraud, salvage operations and more.

If you've not read Death Lies Beneath then here's a taster. It is available in paperback, as an e book, on Amazon Kindle and on Kobo and also as an unabridged audio book narrated by Gordon Griffin.

On location with Inspector Andy Horton in DEATH LIES BENEATH


Death Lies Beneath, DI Andy Horton MysteryDEATH LIES BENEATH is a multi-layered Detective Inspector Andy Horton crime novel, number eight in the series.There are two locations that inspired me for the setting of DEATH LIES BENEATH, one was the marshes on the northern boundary of the city of Portsmouth, facing on to Langstone Harbour, Farlington Marshes. The other was the area of Tipner, or more specifically the sea bordering this north western boundary of Portsmouth, which filters into Portsmouth Harbour.
