Pauline Rowson - one of Britain's most exciting crime authors

Crime author Pauline RowsonPauline Rowson is the author of seventeen crime novels, thirteen featuring the rugged and flawed Portsmouth detective DI Andy Horton, two in the new series featuring Art Marvik, troubled former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) and two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill.

Pauline Rowson has been hailed as "redefining the genre of the police drama” by setting it against the atmospheric backdrop of the ever changing sea. Her cops are tough yet fallible. Adventure, mystery and heroes have always fascinated and thrilled Pauline, that and her love of the sea has led her to create her thrilling range of crime novels.

The DI Andy Horton series of crime novels  has been highly acclaimed in the UK and the USA, translated into several languages and optioned for TV.  Multi layered and complex with a rugged and flawed hero, compelling crimes, diverse characters and full of twists and turns played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of Portsmouth and the Solent.

Silent Running - featuring Art Marvik by Pauline RowsonHer new marine thriller series introduces former Royal Marine Commando, turned undercover investigator, Art Marvik  in Silent Running.  His second mission takes him along the Dorset coast in Dangerous Cargo published by Severn House in 2016. 

Booklist USA, "Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik. 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." Booklist

One of her standalone thrillers, In Cold Daylight  was voted by the public as their third best read in an online poll for World Book Day 2008.  And In for the Kill  was described as "A change of direction at every turn. Keep notes on all the players. If you like Jeffery Deaver, you'll love this story. The best mystery I've ever read by a female author."

When she isn't writing (which isn't often) she can be found walking the coastal paths on the Isle of Wight and around Langstone and Chichester Harbours looking for a good place to put a body!
