A taste for murder at Bishops Waltham Library


Bishops Waltham Library Pauline Rowson explains how she writes her crime novelsIt's always a pleasure to talk to a library audience and those at Bishops Waltham Library in Hampshire got the taste for murder on Thursday 6 April 2017 when I revealed the secrets of my successful crime writing and talked about my crime novels featuring the rugged and flawed sailing detective, Inspector Andy Horton, who appears in fifteen crime novels and Art Marvik, undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) who is appears in four crime novels

This was, of course,  long before the Coronavirus pandemic struck in 2020 and all social gatherings like these were banned. I know many people are missing events and I am missing entertaining the lovely audiences . However the good news is that my first LIVE talk is booked for July 2021 when once again we will be free to socialise in England (hopefully).  Meanwhile I am looking back at some of the talks  I have conducted over the years.

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. 


Death in the Cove, an Inspector Alun Ryga 1950 crime novel

DEATH IN THE COVE is available in paperback, e book, Kindle and audio book.

When the body of a man dressed in a pinstriped suit is discovered by war photographer, Eva Paisley, in a secluded bay on Portland Island, Dorset, Inspector Alun Ryga of Scotland Yard is sent to investigate.  Recently promoted, the thoughtful, observant Ryga, is on his first solo investigation outside of London, and is keen to prove his worth. Ignoring the warnings of the local police inspector, and the Dorset Chief Constable, that his trust in Eva Paisley is misjudged, Ryga quickly realises that her observations could provide the breakthrough he needs in a complex murder investigation and the answer to the haunting circumstances that have sent the man in the pinstriped suit to his death.


DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Inspector Ryga mystery by Pauline RowsonrMyra 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.
