Dangerous Cargo, Art Marvik Mystery Thriller (2)


Dangerous Cargo an Art Marvik Mystery by Pauline RowsonUndercover investigator Art Marvik is tasked to find the truth behind a fifty year old mystery but as he unravels its dark and dangerous secrets someone is determined to stop him from ever revealing them.

'Rowson’s superhero, Art Marvik, returns in another pulse-pounding adventure.  Delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading.' Booklist

'The sort of book where you can’t look away for a second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review


Marvik is detailed by his boss, Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder of the UK’s National Intelligent Marine Squad, to attend the funeral of Bradley Pulford, whose body has been washed up on an Isle of Wight – Pulford had 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 the Dorset coastal town of Swanage in 1989, hook up with a local fishing family, the Killbecks, and after fathering a child with Stacey Killbeck, 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 his dangerous cargo of sins of the past stay in the past.

 

Reviews

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

"This novel has it all - stolen identities, murder and mayhem. The plot is very convoluted with many twists and turns but this adds to the story and had me guessing right up until the end."Goodreads

'I loved this fast-paced story with enough twists and turns in a plot that kept me guessing right to the last page. Pauline Rowson loses no time in plunging the reader right into the throes of the mystery on page one, and the pace is maintained right to the end. If you enjoy an exciting crime novel, where you can rush breathlessly alongside the hero as he unravels a complicated mystery while fending off one danger after another, then you should give this one a try. It won't disappoint.' Rena George 5* Amazon Review
