Dead Sea, an Art Marvik Mystery Thriller by Pauline Rowson


Art Marvik's job is to go into a case cold, ask questions, stir up feelings, and risk his life in order to expose killers. It's what he's good at, facing threats and danger, he’s done it time and again while on missions for the Royal Marines as a Special Boat Services officer. 

Now he does it for the UK Police Special Investigations Squad.

And he's about to face his biggest challenge - the truth behind the deaths of his parents in an underwater explosion.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Full of twists and turns, an excellent read." Amazon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Super Book. Fast moving with a touch of violence and the human story." Amazon

When Marvik visits his safe deposit box in his London bank he discovers that a three-and-a-half inch floppy disk he placed there a few weeks previously has been stolen.

What’s more it has been taken only the day before his arrival by a man Marvik has never heard of.

Puzzled and disturbed, Marvik is left cursing his reluctance to ask his former Royal Marine colleague, intelligence and cyber expert, Shaun Strathen, to open the disk and reveal its contents when he first discovered it in the possession of murdered marine archaeologist, Sarah Redburn.

Now its theft indicates that Sarah was killed because of its highly toxic contents.

Convinced it holds the key to the truth behind the deaths of his parents, Marvik, with Strathen’s aid, sets out to track down the thief.

As they follow a trail of abduction and murder it soon becomes clear that the computer disk holds the key to a secret that a ruthless killer is determined must never be revealed.

"A likeable, smart, tough, but all too human hero. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.A cracking-good series - action fans need Marvik on their radar." Booklist

Invalided out of the Royal Marines, Marvik is like a fish out of water, at a loss how to replace the adrenaline-fuelled days of his Special Boat Services career. Then he is approached by Detective Superintendent Crowder of the newly formed UK's Police National Intelligence Marine Squad to work undercover on on dangerous assignments. These take him to helping to solve marine based crimes that stretch back across the decades in SILENT RUNNING, DANGEROUS CARGO and LOST VOYAGE..  But there's still that itch that needs to be scratched - how to come to terms with the past and lay his parents ghosts to rest, killed in an underwater explosion in the Straits of Malacca in 1997.  In DEAD SEA, Marvik finds himself on the trail of the conspiracy behind his parents death and the chance to finally uncover the truth.
