Inspector Andy Horton's on the hunt for a missing man during Cowes Week

Hilsea Lines Tunnel - Death Surge DI Andy Horton crime novelDeath Surge - DI Andy Horton crime novelDEATH SURGE is set during the International sailing regatta of Cowes Week, which in 2019 runs from 10 August to 17 August.

Cowes Week has been held in early August every year since 1826, except during the two world wars.  It is sometimes delayed a week to take into account the tides or, as in 2012, to avoid a clash with the Olympic Games. In 2016, it followed the Americas Cup which took part in the Solent, off  Portsmouth, on 22 - 24 July. Over the years Cowes Week has attracted British and foreign royalty, and many famous faces- including Inspector Andy Horton.

The novel opens with Andy Horton sailing off the Isle of Wight on his yacht during Cowes Week when a call from a frantic Sergeant Cantelli, to say his nephew is missing brings Horton back to investigate.

DI Andy Horton and Art Marvik country from space

Pauline Rowson's crime novels from spaceCelebrating fifty years of stepping on to the moon's surface this year I thought it apt to upload an image of what Inspector Andy Horton's patch looks like from space! And yes, I know some of my readers will suggest he sends his alpha female nit-picking boss DCI Lorraine Bliss up there. Part of the coastline you can see is also where some of the Art Marvik mystery thriller novels are set, and my two standalone thrillers. You can click on the image to enlarge it.

What's on in August 2019

It might be summer outside but in my mind I'm deep in winter with the second Inspector Alun Ryga 1950 set mystery. In fact it's almost Christmas! Perhaps it will help to keep me cool as the temperature rises. The first Inspector Ryga mystery, DEATH IN THE COVE is now available to pre-order in paperback, on Kindle, Kobo and as an audio book. It is set in 1950 England, a country still struggling to come to terms peace in the grip of austerity and rationing.

Pre-order your copy now. Published on 26 September 2019

August also gives me the chance to feature two of my DI Andy Horton crime novels set during that month - the summer heat is obviously causing a crime wave for my flawed and rugged detective with a high crime rate in his home coastal city of Portsmouth, England!
