DI Andy Horton mystery DEATH LIES BENEATH re-released


Death Lies Beneath an Inspector Andy Horton crime novelDEATH LIES BENEATH is a multi-layered Detective Inspector Andy Horton crime novel, number eight in the series of currently 14 and has been re-released in e book format on Amazon Kindle and on Kobo. It is also published in paperback and as an audio book.

Like most of my novels it is inspired by locations in the area where I live and where the novels are set, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. It is also inspired by topical crimes. In this case, metal thefts, fraud, boat salvage operations and more.

In addition, DEATH LIES BENEATH is one of the pivotal novels in the Horton police procedural series because in it Andy Horton discovers something that gives him a lead in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of his mother when he was ten. This sets him off on a tortuous journey to find the truth about what really happened to her after she walked out of their council flat in a tower block in inner city Portsmouth one foggy November day in 1978 never to be seen again. Also in DEATH LIES BENEATH Andy’s marriage to Catherine is set to be finally dissolved much to Andy’s sorrow.

A Killing Coast, Inspector Andy Horton, by Pauline Rowson DI Andy Horton mystery crime novel number seven in the series of fourteen A KILLING COAST has been re-released in e book format and is available on Amazon Kindle and on Kobo. It is also published in paperback and audio book.

'Multi-layered, twisted, and complex...a surprising conclusion and a satisfying read.' Booklist

When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though, to his dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his ongoing investigation into the disappearance of his mother over thirty years ago to cloud his judgement. With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job.
