Now published in paperback, Lost Voyage no. 3 in the Art Marvik mystery thriller series

Lost Voyage a marine based mystery by Pauline RowsonLost Voyage, number three in the marine mystery thriller series of crime novels by Pauline Rowson featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik, an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS), has been published by Severn House in paperback.  It is already published in hardcover and as an ebook.

Lost Voyage is set against the backdrop of the Severn Sisters cliffs, Beachy Head and the coastal towns of Newhaven and Eastbourne on the south coast of England.

Marvik is surprised to receive an unexpected summons to meet Helen Shannon, a woman he helped on his first mission. When a body is discovered in her flat, Marvik is convinced that Helen is being framed for murder, but why and by whom? Before he has a chance to follow it up, the head of the National Marine Intelligence Squad, (NIMS) Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder, asks Marvik to investigate the disappearance of a salvage vessel, the Mary Jo, which went missing in 2003.  As Marvik delves into the past, it becomes clear that he faces a desperate battle to keep Helen and others safe from a ruthless assassin – one who will stop at nothing in order to protect the secret of the Mary Jo’s last voyage from ever being exposed.

Pauline Rowson is also the author of the Inspector Andy Horton  crime novels (13) with number 14, Dead Passage, to be published in October 2018 and two standalone thrillers, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill. Her crime novels have received critical acclaim in the UK, USA and Commonwealth where they have been hailed as "exemplary”, "cleverly plotted,” "complex and multi-layered.” 

"Plenty of action, I didn't want to put the book down. A good read for mystery/ thriller fans." Net Galley.

While Kirkus Reviews says, "Rowson launches Marvik and his pal Strathen (Dangerous Cargo, 2016, etc.) onto stormy seas, forcing them to navigate between ruthless killers who want to cover their tracks and equally unprincipled business owners who want to protect their assets, all the while keeping the increasingly restless Helen safe from danger. Rowson strikes a nice balance between thriller and puzzler in the third in the series."

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, Inspector 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."

Lost Voyage is available through all good booksellers and for loan in libraries in the UK, USA and Commonwealth.
