OHeading across to Royal Clarence Marina on the police launchn this day last year (17 February 2016) I was privileged and delighted to spend the morning with Hampshire Police Marine Unit researching for Andy Horton crime novel number fourteen.

And the marine unit features in my DI Andy Horton crime novelsFatal Catch, DI Andy Horton 12, is dedicated to Hampshire Police and the Marine Unit.
