What began as the hunt for a missing man becomes the search for a ruthless killer...


A telephone call from a frantic Sergeant Cantelli to say that his nephew, Johnnie Oslow, is missing cuts short Detective Inspector Horton’s sailing trip to France. Summoned back to the Isle of Wight, Horton learns that Johnnie has not shown up for racing during Cowes Week, as previously arranged. The investigation is ranked low priority by Horton’s boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, who like others believes Johnnie has probably gone off with a woman. But events take a very different turn when the charred remains of a body are discovered in one of the disused tunnels at the Hilsea Lines in Portsmouth. With the arrival of Detective Chief Superintendent Sawyer of the Intelligence Directorate and Agent Harriet Eames of Europol, what began as the hunt for a missing man becomes the search for a ruthless killer

Reviews


"A crisply written, cleverly plotted procedural with a nice twist, Rowson’s latest also continues the intriguing saga of Andy’s search for the mother who disappeared in mysterious circumstances when he was a child." Booklist.

"Rowson plunges readers into the midst of the  series’ intricate backstory in her 10th Det. Insp. Andy Horton mystery (after 2013’s Undercurrent).  Within three  pages, a newcomer may feel as if he or she is already catching up. The  fast-paced narrative with its multiple theories, will draw readers along.” Publishers Weekly

"A high quality puzzle… a devious plot.  Death Surge is a taut and exciting investigation into a disappearance which turns into a murder hunt….all very enjoyable." David Marshall

'This excellent police procedural is the twelfth mystery by Pauline Rowson. This is a very gifted author and I have had the pleasure in reviewing two of her previous stories Blood on the Sand and Footsteps on the Shore and knew of the high standard of her work… the quality of her very descriptive writing is superb…. I was gripped until the last page of this very well structured and plotted story. Recommended.' Terry Halligan, Eurocrime
