Lost Voyage, Art Marvik mystery thriller gets glowing reviews

Lost Voyage a marine based mystery by Pauline RowsonLOST VOYAGE, the third in the Marvik mystery thrillers by Pauline Rowson has received glowing reviews from the USA.

LOST VOYAGE features former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik, an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS). It is published in hardback, paperback, as an ebook and on Amazon Kindle and is set on the
South Coast of England.

It is the third in the series and follows SILENT RUNNING (1) and DANGEROUS CARGO (2) both of which are also published as audio books narrated by Peter Noble.

Kirkus  Reviews say of LOST VOYAGE, "Rowson launches Marvik and his pal Strathen 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."'

In LOST VOYAGE 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.

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

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it should appeal to most readers who like British crime stories with a strong regional feel." Net Galley

Marvik mystery thrillers by Pauline RowsonPauline 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."

Pauline Rowson's crime novels are available through all good booksellers and for loan in libraries in the UK, USA and Commonwealth. 

Lost Voyage is now available in Large Print, paperback, as an e book and on Amazon Kindle and on Kobo.
