A walk on the wet side-some of the locations used in the Art Marvik crime novel, Silent Running

OK, so I didn't get my feet wet but this ten mile walk from Fishbourne, West Sussex to West Wittering borders the tranquil setting of Chichester Harbour, and takes in some of the locations used in my Art Marvik crime novel SILENT RUNNING.  The weather too was perfect for walking, not too hot, sunny or windy.

The story behind Death Surge - A DI Andy Horton Mystery

As it is Cowes Week (8- 15 August 2015) I thought I would explain the story behind Death Surge, the DI Andy Horton crime novel which is set around the annual yacht racing event.  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 it 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.
