Silent Running steams ahead with glowing review

I'm thrilled that Silent Running, the first in the new crime series introducing former marine commando Art Marvik has got off to a flying start with a great review from USA reviewer, Booklist.

"Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good new series—action fans need Marvik on their radar."

It's always lovely to get such positive feedback for a novel and I'm also thrilled that some of my readers on Twitter  and Facebook have said how much they enjoyed it.
