Video Trailer - Dead Man's Wharf

Dead Man's Wharf is the third in the DI Andy Horton Series. It was given a starred review by USA reviewer Kirkus.

"Rowson turns out an exemplary procedural with the requisite plot twists, double-crosses and all loose ends tied up neatly in a sailor’s knot."

The audio book version of Dead Man's Wharf read by the very talented actor, Gordon Griffin was also given glowing reviews in the States.

"As gruff Inspector Andy Horton uncovers fact after fact concerning the mysterious deaths at a nursing home, the scope of the crimes only seems to grow. Griffin makes us feel the pain and terror of hidden violence. It's a moving portrayal." D.R.W. AudioFile Magazine 2013, Portland, Maine

A welcome in Weymouth, location reseach at the marina and a talk at the library

On Wednesday 22 October I combined a talk at Weymouth Library with the opportunity to do some research for one of my crime novels.

As my readers know my crime novels are all set around the sea with the DI Andy Horton series primarily set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England. However, there is always the chance that DI Horton will venture further afield and readers are in for a surprise in 2015 and a treat (I hope) with the launch of a brand new hero in a brand new crime series (more about that later) which means that other coastal locations will be featuring in future crime novels. One of them is Weymouth.

A captivated audience for Pauline Rowson as guest speaker at Probus Annual Lunch

A captivated audience listened enthralled with the exploits of my heroes in my crime novels, those featuring the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton, and in my two standalone crime novels, In For The Kill and In Cold Daylight, when I was guest speaker at the annual lunch of Fareham and Meon Probus Club on Wednesday 8 October.

It was a very enjoyable lunch and a great audience. I talked about the inspiration behind my crime novels, which are set on the  South Coast of England, how I turn ideas into plots, develop my characters, map out the storyline and come up with the finished goods, currently thirteen crime novels.

Pauline Rowson explains the idea behind CSI Portsmouth and the reason for its success

I often get asked when giving talks about my crime novels about the research side of creating a crime novel so when I was approached by Portsmouth City Library in 2010 about becoming involved in the first annual Portsmouth BookFest, it seemed an ideal opportunity to suggest putting on an event that brought crime fiction and fact together under one roof. The idea was greeted enthusiastically and CSI Portsmouth was born!

Now in its fifth year CSI Portsmouth regularly attracts audiences of over a hundred and thirty people, across all ages and from all walks of life, across the UK. It is a one day event with two panel sessions, one in the morning, the other in the afternoon and each panel comprises a selection of top crime authors, police officers and forensic experts.

CSI Portsmouth is about entertaining the audience, providing them with something new and different, something that will create a buzz and to date its been highly successful in achieving this.  The line up for CSI Portsmouth 2014 on Saturday 8 November is no different, take a look at our panel guests  and programme or watch the video.

Leaving a Book Review on Amazon

Recommendation is a great way to spread the news about a good book so if you've enjoyed reading any of my crime novels I'd be delighted if you could take the time to leave a review.

If you are a customer of Amazon (even if you didn't purchase my book via them) you can still leave a review by logging into your account and clicking on the crime novel/s you have read.

If you have read any of my crime novels please do take time to leave a review on Amazon UK  or Amazon USA even if it is a one line sentence. And for those of you who have already done so, many thanks.

What's on in October

There's a lot happening in October. This month sees the publication of A Killing Coast (DI Andy Horton 7) in Large Print and Undercurrent (DI Andy Horton 9) in paperback.

And in a new departure for me I'm delighted to announce that my  murder mystery play, Murder at the Pelican Club, is being premiered in Kent at the end of October.

There are several talks on the agenda including a visit to Weymouth Library, and I'll once again be on BBC Radio Solent, talking to Julian Clegg.
