Locations for the DI Andy Horton Crime Series

The Marine Mystery DIAndy Horton series of police procedural crime novels are set in theSolent area on the South Coast of England, and more specifically, Portsmouth,the Isle of Wight and surrounding areas of Hayling, Fareham and Gosport. Essentially they are set around the sea, hence Marine Mysteries - my trademark and because I live in the area I'm often out looking for a good place to put a body - or rather perhaps I should say on location research and seeking inspiration .

The Gosport FerryThese photographs were taken on a trip between Portsmouth and Gosport, which means a short ferry journey across the very busy and narrow entrance of Portsmouth Harbour, where my enigmatic detective, DI Andy Horton, often travels along with the marine police unit of Sergeant Elkins and Constable Ripley, in the pursuit of an investigation.

Death Surge - DI Andy Horton 10Gosport is particularly featured in DI AndyHorton number ten, Death Surge, when the investigation into Detective Sergeant Cantelli's missing nephew takes Horton to Haslar Marina, Gosport. The cover of Death Surge actually shows the view across the harbour to Gosport.
