The Page 69 Test - Dead Man's Wharf - DI Andy Horton


Dead Man's Wharf, Inspector Andy Horton crime novelThe first I heard of the Page 69 Test was when a member of the public approached me in a bookshop where I was doing a book signing and said she always applied it when deciding which crime novel to purchase. She didn’t buy one of my novels so I’d obviously failed to reach her exacting standards, whatever they were! I can't recall which crime novel it was or when but I have applied the Page 69 test to some of my crime novels including the Inspector Andy Horton procedurals, A Killing Coast and Shroud of Evil. This time, as it is January and Dead Man's Wharf is set in January I thought I'd apply it to that crime novel.

What's on in January 2018-tackling the new crime novel set in 1950 Britain



Pauline Rowson, crime authorWriting, writing and more writing is on the cards for January 2018 as I continue to work on my new crime novel set in 1950 in Britain. Over the last two months I've been immersing myself in 1950 Britain working on the first draft of the novel which I completed at the end of November.  I'm now working on revisions. This new crime novel features a thoughtful, reflective Scotland Yard detective who is sent to Portland in Dorset to investigate the murder of a man found in Church Ope Cove. I am hoping that it will be the first in a brand new series.
