Booklist says, "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 (USA)

Pauline Rowson is also the author of the Inspector Andy Horton  crime novels (13)  also published by Severn House and of two standalone thrillers, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill.
Pauline Rowson's Inspector Horton crime novels have received critical acclaim in the UK, USA and Commonwealth where they have been hailed as "exemplary police procedurals”, "cleverly plotted,” "complex and multi-layered.” 

Pauline Rowson says, "Marvik is a troubled character, tough, highly trained,fearless, intelligent and fit but he is finding it difficult to adjust to life outside the marines. Marvik, like my other hero, DI Andy Horton, has a strong sense of justice, but whereas Andy has to operate within the boundaries of the law, Marvik can go outside it and often does on his missions working undercover and as a civilian attached to the UK's secret law enforcement agency, the National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS).  These crime novels, like all my others, are set against the backdrop of the sea."
