Read a sample

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. 

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

DI Andy Horton

DI Andy Horton is a flawed and rugged cop whose patch is Portsmouth CID and whose investigations take him across the Solent and into the harbours of Langstone and Chichester and its surrounding coastal towns. Living on board his small yacht in Southsea Marina since his estrangement from his wife, following a gross misconduct charge, the sailing detective is a man rarely at peace, unless he is on the sea. When fighting crime he is prepared to take risks and is fearless in his search for justice. He's been raised in children's homes after his mother abandoned him as a child. He has a desperate need to belong and yet is always on the outside. Being alone is his greatest fear, yet he is alone.
