Latest reviews for DI Horton crime novel A Killing Coast

A Killing Coast- A DI Horton crime novel by Pauline RowsonHere are two of the latest reviews from the USA for A Killing Coast, the seventh in the DI Horton marine mystery crime series by Pauline Rowson.

"The plot is multilayered, twisted, and complex, and while it takes concentration to keep all the characters and clues straight, readers who persevere will be rewarded with a surprising conclusion and a satisfying read.” Booklist

"Meticulous police work leads Horton to a particularly callous and ruthless killer as well as theft and blackmail…includes a few unexpected twists.”
Publishers Weekly

When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though, to his dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his ongoing investigation into the disappearance of his mother over thirty years ago to cloud his judgement. With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job.

Available in hardcover from all good bookshops and on line. Also available on loan from UK, USA and Commonwealth Libraries.
