Review of 2016 - A look back at my crime novels published in 2016

I'm also thrilled that not only are they on sale in bookstores and on line but can be borrowed from any UK, USA and Commonwealth Library. What more could a crime writer want!

Dangerous Cargo, the second in the Art Marvik marine crime seriesDangerous Cargo was published in hardcover in the UK. It is the
second in the series featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik, now undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS).

"Marvik's second outing is even more muscular than his debut, (Silent Running 2015) as Rowson edges her detective puzzles ever closer to thriller territory." Kirkus Reviews USA

For his second mission with the National Intelligence Marine Squad, (NIMS) Marvik is detailed to attend the funeral of a man who’d officially been declared dead fifty-five years earlier. So who is the imposter and why did he assume the name of a dead man? What’s more, why did he suddenly show up in a Dorset coastal town in 1989, hook up with a local fishing family, and after fathering a child, disappear in 1990?

When an innocent woman is killed during the course of the investigation, Marvik realizes that the stakes are much higher than he’d previously thought. As he begins to uncover a trail of deceit, corruption and murder that spans over half a century, Marvik must confront a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to make sure that the sins of the past stay in the past.


Shroud of Evil, A DI Andy Horton Mystery by Pauline RowsonAlso in May, Shroud of Evil, the eleventh in the DI Andy Horton series was published by Severn House in  large print. 

It is also available in paperback, hardcover and as an ebook on Amazon Kindle and Kobo in the UK, USA and Commonwealth.

Publishers Weekly says of Shroud of Evil, "A compelling protagonist and mounting suspense make the book hard to put down." While Booklist reviewer hails Shroud of Evil as "A swirling cyclone of action leading to a shocking conclusion that will leave readers eager for the next installment in this always-surprising series."


July 2016



Silent Running Audio Book by Pauline RowsonSilent Running was released as an unabridged audio book by Soundings and is read by Peter Noble.


Booklist says of Silent Running, "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."
