The story behind DI Andy Horton in Death Surge

The inspiration for Death Surge came like all the other novels in the series featuring the flawed and rugged detective DI Andy Horton from the location.  It is locations that inspire me and with the Horton series, set against the powerfully evocative British marine landscape of the Solent on the South Coast of England, there is always a good place to put a body.

Placing the crime novels against the backdrop of the sea has many advantages. The sea is never constant. In one day it can change from being calm to turbulent. It is also dangerous, misleading and evil like many villains, and although it can look safe beneath can be a sandbank, a rock, a wreck, a dangerous current all of which can cause havoc and kill, and be used to good effect in a crime novel. It also provides a great backdrop for pace and great settings for a climax, which, of course, I’ve used in Death Surge.

Leaving a Book Review on Amazon

Recommendation has always been a great way to spread the news and for books it is no different. For books this comes not only through word of mouth but through reviews.

Many readers have told me they have purchased my books on Amazon in Kindle format, paperback or hardback and have enjoyed reading them but have not left a review. I encourage them to do so and would like to do the same here.

If you have read any of my crime novels please do take time to leave a review on Amazon even if it is a one line sentence. And for those of you who enjoy my crime novels and are already spreading the word my heartfelt thanks.

The London Book Fair and DI Andy Horton Shroud of Evil Published

It was great to catch up with my publisher, my oversea agents and my friends and colleagues in the book trade on Monday. 

The London Book Fair was pretty busy although I didn't think as busy as in previous years.  Met up with lots of my contacts in the book trade and publishing world.
