A Killing Coast on the bridge of Wightlink Ferry

Pauline Rowson with Captain Paul MarshallCaptain Paul Marshall, of the Wightlink ferry, St Clare, welcomed me on to the Bridge on a glorious sunny morning on Friday 23 March 2012 . The occasion was not only to give Captain Marshall a signed copy of the DI Horton crime fiction novel, A KILLING COAST, but to surprise a good friend of mine, Linda Leader, who A KILLING COAST is dedicated to.

Pauline Rowson signing A Killing CoastDI Horton's patch is Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight and to get from one to the other, he has to travel across the Solent sometimes by police launch, sometimes by the Hovercraft and sometimes by the Wightlink car ferry. The Solent is a vibrant area, with so many contrasts and so much happening both on land and at sea, what better place to set a series of crime novels.

'Multilayered, twisted, and complex...a surprising conclusion and a satisfying read.' Booklist

DI Andy Horton Mystery A Killing Coast by Pauline RowsonWhen 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.

A KILLING COAST is available in paperback, ebook, on Amazon Kindle, Kobo and Apple Books. It is also available as an audio book on Audible and can be borrowed from libraries in the UK, Commonwealth and the USA.
