Marvik mystery thriller Lost Voyage published in paperback


Lost Voyage a marine based mystery by Pauline RowsonI'm delighted that Lost Voyage, number three in the Art Marvik mystery series has now been published in paperback.  It is already published in hardcover and as an ebook an available on Amazon Kindle.

Lost Voyage is set against the backdrop of the Severn Sisters cliffs, Beachy Head and the coastal towns of Newhaven and Eastbourne on the south coast of England.

Marvik is surprised to receive an unexpected summons to meet Helen Shannon, a woman he helped on his first mission. When a body is discovered in her flat, Marvik is convinced that Helen is being framed for murder, but why and by whom? Before he has a chance to follow it up, the head of the National Marine Intelligence Squad, (NIMS) Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder, asks Marvik to investigate the disappearance of a salvage vessel, the Mary Jo, which went missing in 2003.  As Marvik delves into the past, it becomes clear that he faces a desperate battle to keep Helen and others safe from a ruthless assassin – one who will stop at nothing in order to protect the secret of the Mary Jo’s last voyage from ever being exposed.

Marvik is tough, highly trained,fearless, intelligent and fit but he is finding it difficult to adjust to life outside the marines. Marvik, like my other hero, Inspector Andy Horton, has a strong sense of justice, but whereas Andy has to operate within the boundaries of the law, (although he does rather buck them at times) Marvik can go outside it and often does on his missions working undercover and as a civilian attached to the UK's secret law enforcement agency, the National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS).  These crime novels, like all my others, are set against the backdrop of the sea.

There are some lovely reviews for LOST VOYAGE and I hope that new readers discover the Marvik mysteries and enjoy them.

"Plenty of action, I didn't want to put the book down. A good read for mystery/ thriller fans." Net Galley.

"Rowson launches Marvik and his pal Strathen (Dangerous Cargo, 2016, etc.) onto stormy seas, forcing them to navigate between ruthless killers who want to cover their tracks and equally unprincipled business owners who want to protect their assets, all the while keeping the increasingly restless Helen safe from danger. Rowson strikes a nice balance between thriller and puzzler in the third in the series."' Kirkus Reviews

Lost Voyage is available through all good booksellers and for loan in libraries in the UK, USA and Commonwealth.
