Dropped into Newhaven Library for a quick read of Marvik Mystery Thriller

Pauline Rowson at Newhaven Marina with Art Marvik marine crime novel, Silent RunningWhile on location research for the third Art Marvik mystery thriller LOST VOYAGE I dropped into Newhaven Library in East Sussex and was delighted to learn from the library staff that both the Art Marvik and DI Andy Horton crime novels are enjoyed by readers of Newhaven Library.

Since my research visit to Newhaven for Marvik mystery thriller LOST VOYAGE in 2016 I have set another mystery novel in the town but in a different era.  I was so taken by the atmosphere of the port of Newhaven that I decided to set Inspector Ryga 1950s mystery DEATH IN THE HARBOUR (2) there.
