Undercurrent - the ninth in the DI Andy Horton Series
When naval historian Dr Douglas Spalding is found dead in Portsmouth’s
Historic Dockyard, the Major Crime Team is adamant it is suicide.
Detective Inspector Horton is not so sure. Then another body is found in
similar circumstances and Horton is convinced they’re looking at
murder; but not so his bosses. Angry and frustrated at the lack of
investigation, Horton goes out on a limb to prove he’s right. Whichever
way he turns, he finds the deaths have all the hallmarks of a cover up
at the highest level, but who is behind it and why? Soon Horton begins
to find disturbing similarities with his own private investigations into
the disappearance of his mother thirty years ago. As he gets closer to
the truth though someone is determined to prevent it from ever coming
out, even if means death . . .
"Rowson successfully pilots the complex
storyline, filled with wild speculations and a slew of suspects, to a fitting
conclusion." Publishers Weekly
"Another solid procedural from Rowson, with a little kick of spy stuff for the adventurous." Kirkus.
"As usual, Rowson offers up a thorny, multifaceted plot; a profusion of
unusual twists; a likable yet complex hero; and plenty of fast-paced,
knuckle-biting action." Booklist
"Those seeking an outstanding British police procedural will devour the
ninth entry in Rowson’s sea-oriented series. Rowson’s plotting is deftly
layered, and she successfully captures the mood of her protagonist’s
tortured journey while creating abundant tension for the main plot of
political intrigue." Library Journal USA
Amazon 5 * Review
"Set against the stunning backdrop of the south coast, once again Portsmouth succumbs to the seedy criminal underworld of murder and intrigue. This is the best book in the series to date, and can not only stand alone as a great read, but is a must for those readers following Andy Horton in his quest for answers to his hidden past. Fast paced from beginning to end and totally gripping, Pauline Rowson can always be relied upon to give us a great story.Horton is a modern day 'Bergerac' and should definitely be on TV. I can't wait for the next instalment."
