DEATH IN THE COVE mystery set in 1950 gets glowing reviews

Death in the Cove, an Inspector Alun Ryga 1950 mysteryDEATH IN THE COVE, the first in a new historical mystery crime series by Pauline Rowson, author of the popular DI Andy Horton novels and Art Marvik mystery thrillers, has garnered some glowing book reviews.

Mystery People Magazine says, 'The clues are there, but I followed the red herring anddidn’t guess the murderer.  Willyou?  Don’t miss this first book in whatis sure to be a first-class series. Whilst the murderer is unmasked there are left some tempting hooks forthe next book.  Highly recommended.'

While Audible says of the audio book edition of DEATH IN THE COVE, "I enjoyed this book. The setting was interesting because it happens about 5 years after WW II. It was fascinating to learn about the rationing and human toll that still lingered that many years after the war. I would recommend it for lovers of mysteries without gory details, a solid police procedural with interesting characters. The ending was a twist I didn't see coming." Audible

DEATH IN THE COVE introduces Scotland Yard detective Inspector Alun Ryga who is sent to investigate a baffling murder on the Island of Portland in Dorset. The novel is set in 1950 England, still struggling to come to terms with peace in the grip of austerity and rationing.

DEATH IN THE COVE  is published in paperback, and on Amazon Kindle and Kobo and as an audio book narrated by Jonathan Rhodes and produced by B7 Media. 

Pauline Rowson says, 'I thoroughly enjoyed creating my new Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Ryga and researching and writing an historical crime novel. Policing and society in the 1950s was so vastly different to today, no mobile phones, no dashing about and no computers. In addition, the legacy of the Second World War was still very much in evidence.

'Ryga is a thoughtful, intelligent and thorough police officer with an understanding of the sea gained during his time in the Merchant Navy and an insight into human nature for both good and evil as witnessed during his days of incarceration in a German prisoner-of-war camp. I hope my readers will enjoy their journey with him and that the new crime novel will also appeal to many new readers. '

Pauline Rowson is the author of twenty one crime novels, fifteen featuring the rugged and flawed Portsmouth detective, Inspector Andy Horton; three in the mystery thriller series featuring Art Marvik, the former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) and two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill.

Her crime novels have been described as "Gripping, full of twists and turns, multi-layered, and compelling."

Death in the Cove, an Inspector Alun Ryga 1950 mysteryThe body of a man dressed in a pinstriped suit has been discovered in an isolated cove on the Island of Portland by war photographer, Eva Paisley.  Recently promoted to Inspector, Ryga is keen to prove his worth on his first solo investigation outside of London.
