Lethal Waves, an Andy Horton Marine Mystery by Pauline Rowson

Lethal Waves, number thirteen in the crime series featuring the flawed and rugged Portsmouth detective, DI Andy Horton, has now been published in Large Print. It is already available in paperback and as an ebook on Kindle and on Kobo.

On his return from Guernsey, Horton is called out to investigate the death of a vagrant whose body is found under a rotting houseboat on the shores of Portsmouth.

Publishers Weekly say, "Nothing in this police procedural is as it first appears. The Harley Davidson-riding, boat-dwelling Horton is a fascinating man to get to know, and his thoughtful approach to detection is a pleasure to read."

While Booklist reviewer says of Lethal Waves, "This heart-breaking story of ambition, greed, jealousy, and revenge makes a good choice for fans of no-nonsense British procedurals."

There are fourteen in the Inspector Andy Horton mystery series, with the latest DEAD PASSAGE, number 14, published in paperback, as an e book and on Amazon Kindle and Kobo on October 2018.

In Lethal Waves, Inspector Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. There don't appear to be any suspicious circumstances. It's not Horton's case. But as  soon as Horton returns to Portsmouth he's called in to investigate the death of a vagrant found lying partially covered under a rotting houseboat. This time, it’s clearly murder.

Troubled by the many unanswered questions surrounding both deaths, Horton must call upon all his skills and intuition to solve a complex case, uncovering dark secrets that have led to such lethal waves of destruction.

"Finely balancing his obsession with the past and his currentworkload, Horton manages to mount a decent investigation and produce a sound,if somewhat unlikely, conclusion." Kirkus Reviews
