The DI Andy Horton crime novels in order


Should I read the DI Andy Horton series in order?

The answer is no. They can be read in any order because each is a standalone mystery. In each DI Andy Horton (and there are now 13 in the series) there is a new crime for the flawed and rugged detective to investigate but there is also the drama of his unfolding personal life and his quest to discover the truth behind his mother's disappearance (Jennifer Horton) thirty years ago.

It can never be determined which book in the series a reader might buy or borrow from a library so I need to weave in Andy Horton's back story and his personal quest enough so that the new reader can pick it up but not too much so that it bores the reader who has read the Horton series from the beginning. Some readers have told me that they've discovered Andy Horton in a later book in the series and then having done so have gone back to the beginning and read them in sequence.

Lethal Waves, an Inspector Andy Horton crime novel by Pauline RowsonThere are now now thirteen in the DI Andy Horton crime series with Lethal Waves, the latest published in the UK in 2017

So DI Andy Horton has come a long way since first appearing in Tide of Death in 2006.


The Inspector Andy Horton crime novels are available as paperbacks, e books, on Amazon Kindle and Kobo, as unabridged audio books and in large print.



Tide of Death, the first in the Inspector Andy Horton series of crime novels



Tide of Death - the first in the DI Andy Horton seriesIn DI Andy Horton number one, Tide of Death, Andy is back in CID after being suspended for eight months on a gross misconduct charge. His marriage has broken up and he's living on board his yacht in a marina in Portsmouth on the South Coast of England. He has a murder to solve and is determined to clear his name and re-establish his reputation as a good cop and try and save his marriage, but is it too late?



The Suffocating Sea, the third in the Inspector Andy Horton series of crime novels



The Suffocating Sea - the third in the DI Andy Horton seriesIn DI Andy Horton number three, The Suffocating Sea, he discovers something about his mother's disappearance thirty years ago which sets him on a mission to discover why she abandoned him at the age of ten, where she went and what subsequently happened to her. This thread is followed throughout the subsequent novels but if the reader picks up and reads the novels out of sequence he or she should be able to follow the thread of Andy's private investigation in each novel.



In each novel there is a new case for DI Andy Horton with plenty of action. Horton is often joined by Sergeant Cantelli and the Major Crime Team headed by Detective Superintendent Uckfield. Horton is also often in conflict with his abrasive CID boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss.

The DI Andy Horton novels in order then with the first in the series listed at the top, are:



Tide of Death
Deadly Waters
The Suffocating Sea
Dead Man's Wharf
Blood on the Sand
Footsteps on the Shore
A Killing Coast
Death Lies Beneath
Undercurrent
Death Surge
Shroud of Evil (2014)
Fatal Catch (2015)
Lethal Waves (2017)

Read more about each DI Andy Horton novel.

I enjoy writing the DI Andy Horton series and seeing the characters' lives unfold. I hope my readers do too.

If you enjoy the Inspector Andy Horton crime novels you might like the crime novels featuring former Royal Marine Commando Art Marvik, now working as an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad in Silent Running and Dangerous Cargo.

It was a very interesting talk at Lyndhurst U3A and meeting you was great. Since then I have read everyone of your books which I find so exciting I can hardly wait for the next one. You did mention that possibly Andy Horton might visit Lyndhurst!! Any research needed on the area - just ask!

Thanks for the blog comment. I`m surprised too seeing as I have done book signings there and they have always stocked them in the past! Maybe they had sold out. They should have looked me up and they will always order copies. Hopefully you`ve stirred them up to at least get some in. Many thanks. Pauline.
