DI Andy Horton Lethal Waves to be re-issued in paperback, ebook and Kindle


We're delighted to announce that DI Andy Horton mystery number thirteen, LETHAL WAVES, is being re-issued in paperback, as an e book and on Amazon Kindle on 3 August 2020 and is available to pre-order.

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 says, "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."

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 troubled former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS), two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill and the 1950 set crime series featuring Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Alun Ryga, who makes his debut in DEATH IN THE COVE.

In LETHAL WAVES, Inspector Andy Horton’s meal withhis old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a smartly dressed, affluent woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. While there doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances, as soon as Horton returns to Portsmouth he's called out to investigate the death of a vagrant found lying partially covered under a rotting houseboat close to Horton’s boat in the marina. This time, it’s clearly murder and what’s more there could be a disturbing link with the death of the woman in the cabin. 

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 of ambition and greed that have led to such lethal waves of destruction.

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

The Inspector Andy Horton mystery novels are set against the visually strong, unique and atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the vibrant and diverse area of the Solent, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England.

Inspector Andy Horton is a flawed and rugged cop, instinctive, tough and resilient, but deeply empathetic. A man very much defined by a tormented past, but with hopes for his future.Living on board his small yacht in Southsea Marina since his estrangement from his wife, the sailing detective is a man rarely at peace, unless he is on the sea. When fighting crime he is prepared to take risks and is fearless in his search for justice. He's been raised in children's homes and foster homes after his mother abandoned him as a child. He has a desperate need to belong and yet is always on the outside. Being alone is his greatest fear, yet he is alone.

LETHAL WAVES, DI Andy Horton mystery 13, is published on 3 August 2020 and is available for pre-order
