What makes Pauline Rowson's crime novels different - marine mystery country - a fascination with the sea


Sailing out of Portsmouth HarbourWe all know that location is an important factor when choosing where to live, it is also equally important in choosing the setting for a crime novel. There are many great settings for crime novels in the UK from gritty Glasgow to captivating Cornwall and of course the wonderful diversity of settings in countries around the World. There is also the fictional setting.

For me though there is marine mystery country, the location for my crime novels, which happens to be a real place and that is Portsmouth and the Solent on the South Coast of England. Here my sailing detective, the flawed and rugged  DI Andy Horton, pits his wits against the criminal classes, which takes him, and others in the team, into the harbours and marinas around Portsmouth, Langstone, Chichester, and the Isle of Wight.

Pauline Rowson with Dangerous Cargo, picture Malcolm Wells. Geest Line's MV Benguela Stream at Portsmouth International PortHad great fun on the photo shoot for the launch of Dangerous Cargo thanks to the Portsmouth International Port, MMD Shipping Services and the Geest Line.

What better place to launch a new crime novel with the title Dangerous Cargo than in front of  a cargo ship at Portsmouth International Port, although the cargo in the second in the marine based crime series featuring Art Marvik is of a far more deadly nature than bananas transported on the Geest Line's MV Benguela Stream, a purpose-built Dutch-registered 150m vessel for the ocean transport of perishable cargo.
