Pauline Rowson

Severn House Publishers has bought World English language rights to the first in a brand new crime series written by Pauline Rowson author of the popular marine mystery crime series featuring the flawed and rugged Portsmouth based detective DI Andy Horton.

The first in the new series, Silent Running, featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik, is to be published in hardback in the UK in March 2015 and in the USA in September2015 when it will also be released as an ebook.

Edwin Buckhalter, Chairman of Severn House, says, ‘Silent Running has all the hallmarks of a good Rowson novel, the setting and atmosphere, the sailing and boats, interesting characters, and the intricate, complex plot. It is certainly something that will excite her existing fans and bring in  new readers.’

Silent Running, like the DI Horton novels, bears Rowson’s trademark of being set against the backdrop of the sea. Adrift after leaving the marines, Marvik unexpectedly finds himself being used as bait to catch a ruthless killer whose slaying spree spans the decades. In a race against time, Marvik is sucked into a dangerous assignment and a web of deceit that will need all his skills, and those of his friend, former Marine Special Forces Communicator, Shaun Strathen, to get to the truth. Their mission, to stop a ruthless killer before he kills again.

Pauline Rowson is the author of thirteen crime novels, eleven in the DI Andy Horton series. Her work has received critical acclaim in the UK, USA and Commonwealth where her novels have been hailed as "exemplary police procedurals”, "cleverly plotted, complex and multi-layered.” Her novels have also been translated into other languages including Chinese.

Fatal Catch, the twelfth in the DI Andy Horton series, is to be published by Severn House in autumn of 2015.

Pauline Rowson lives in Hampshire and has been long listed for the Dagger in the Library Award and her thriller, In Cold Daylight was voted the third most popular novel for World Book Day 2008.

Pauline Rowson says, ‘I’m thrilled that Severn House are publishing the first in my new crime series. It’s going to be an exciting year in 2015 with a new hero on the block and another DI Andy Horton to delight his growing fan base.’
