DEATH IN THE HARBOUR by Pauline Rowson follows on the success of DEATH IN THE COVE with the third Inspector Ryga mystery planned for publication in Spring 2021.

In DEATH IN THE HARBOUR Scotland Yard's Inspector Alun 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.

Myra Swinley is convinced that her police constable husband’s death was no accident, and that he would never have lost his footing on a dark, foggy November night on the quayside of Newhaven Harbour while on his beat. Determined to get to the truth she visits Scotland Yard to ask his former friend, Detective Superintendent Street, to investigate. Street says they have no basis to do so, but when Myra fails to return home from her visit to the Yard, Inspector Ryga is sent down to the Sussex coast to investigate. Accompanied by former war photographer, Eva Paisley, who has been airlifted back to England after suffering a wound incurred in Korea, Ryga’s investigation soon begins to uncover some puzzling facts. Painstakingly, and with Eva’s assistance, Ryga begins to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his sensible law-abiding wife has gone missing.

Pauline Rowson says, "Ryga is a former merchant navy seaman and German prisoner-of-war. His experience at sea, and as a prisoner-of-war, have made him unique in his approach to solving coastal based crimes. He's observant, analytical and reflective and it has also given him insights into his fellow man. He’s witnessed compassion, cruelty, cowardice and heroism, mental breakdown and despair. He’s made a promise to himself that whatever happens after the war he’ll keep an open mind and never judge.'

In both DEATH IN THE COVE and DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Ryga teams up with former war photographer, Eva Paisley. The series has already attracted glowing reviews.

Mystery People Magazine says, "Captures the period perfectly. A first-class series. Highly recommended” while BH Living Magazine says "A great read and one I recommend to any crime fans"

Pauline Rowson is the bestselling 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, two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In For the Kill and her new 1950 set crime series featuring Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Alun Ryga, who made his debut in DEATH IN THE COVE.

"Pure detection mixed with a bit of history. Love these new characters and the setting is great.” Goodreads (Death in the Cove)

DEATH IN THE HARBOUR will be published in paperback, as an ebook, on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple and Google Books and as an audio book on 2 November 2020. It is available to pre order.
