The setting for Inspector Ryga Mystery DEATH IN THE HARBOUR



Death in the Harbour by Pauline RowsonDEATH IN THE HARBOUR, the second in the Inspector Ryga 1950s set mystery series, is set in the port of Newhaven on the East Sussex coast.

Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse between Brighton to the west (nine miles) and the stunning Severn Sister Cliffs to the East (ten miles). It is a busy port with regular cross channel ferry sailings to Dieppe (France); a fishing fleet and leisure craft but since the time when my crime novel is set in December 1950 its cargo and steamer trade has declined. The town has also changed considerably, not to mention the pace and way of life
