A balmy book night at Prinsted with crime author Pauline Rowson

Author Pauline Rowson entertaining members of Prinsted and Emsworth Reading GroupIn my tour down my memory lane of talks this one might have been permitted in 2020 but not with so many people sitting around one table - not unless they were all from the same 'social bubble'.  What am I talking about? Yes, there is a lot of new lingo on the block with the rampaging awful Covid-19 virus which has put paid to public gatherings and lots more, sadly.

But back in the balmy days of 2017 I was delighted to entertain members of the Prinsted and Emsworth Reading Groups at an outdoor performance in the stunning garden of a member's house which faced the shore of the Thorney Channel of Chichester Harbour. The Thorney Channel is featured in one of my  Inspector Andy Horton crime novels, FATAL CATCH, no. 12 in the series of 15 (2020).

Prinsted is also where the Queen of crime fiction, Agatha Christie, used to spend time with her aunt and maybe even draw inspiration from it as I do from the locations around the area.  So I was in good company both literally and spiritually.

Pauline Rowson explaining how she plots her crime novels- Prinsted Reading GroupMembers of  the reading group heard I plot and research my crime novels set along the south coast of England.  This was followed by a lively question and answer session and a book signing.

Since this talk took place I also have a new hero on the block, Scotland Yard's Inspector Ryga who is sent out to solve coastal crimes.  His first is on the Isle of Portland, Dorset when the body of a man in a pin-striped suit is found dead on Church Ope Cove - DEATH IN THE COVE. The second Inspector Ryga 1950 set mystery is DEATH IN THE HARBOUR and will be published on 2 November in paperback, e book and on Kindle. It is available to pre-order. Like the first in the series it is also available as an audio book. 

In DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Ryga is sent to Newhaven, East Sussex  to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his wife has gone missing.

In addition to the above there are three mystery thrillers in the Art Marvik series, the troubled former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad and two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill.

My crime novels have been highly acclaimed and translated into several languages.  Multi layered and complex, they contain compelling crimes, diverse characters and are full of twists and turns all played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of the south coast of England.
