What's on in June 2016

Pauline Rowson with Dangerous Cargo, picture Malcolm WellsJune sees the publication of the new crime novel featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik in his second mission for the UK's covert National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS)  Dangerous Cargo, and what better place to launch the novel than in front of a cargo ship at Portsmouth International Port, although the cargo in Dangerous Cargo is of a far more deadlier nature than bananas transported on the Geest Shipping line, MV Benguela Stream.

I'm delighted that Dangerous Cargo, is published by Severn House  It is the second in the Art Marvik marine crime series, the first Silent Running was published in the UK and the USA in 2015 and  has been hailed as  'A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.'

Dangerous Cargo, an Art Marvik Marine Mystery by Pauline RowsonerousFor his second mission with the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad, (NIMS) Marvik is on the trail of a 55-year-old mystery. He's detailed to attend the funeral of a man who’d officially been declared dead fifty-five years earlier. So who is the imposter and why did he assume the name of a dead man?  When an innocent woman is killed Marvik realizes that the stakes are much higher than he’d previously thought. As he begins to uncover a trail of deceit, corruption and murder that spans over half a century, Marvik must confront a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to make sure that the sins of the past stay in the past.

Marvik is a troubled character, tough, highly trained,fearless, intelligent and fit but he is finding it difficult to adjust to life outside the Marines. Marvik, like my other hero, DI Andy Horton, has a strong sense of justice, but whereas Andy has to operate within the boundaries of the law, Marvik can go outside it and often does on his missions working undercover and as a civilian attached to the UK's secret law enforcement agency, the National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS).  These crime novels, like all my others, are set against the backdrop of the sea. 

Dangerous Cargo is now available in hardcover from all good bookshops and on line and can borrowed from libraries.

My thanks to Portsmouth International Port, to Geest Shipping Line and MMD in Portsmouth for helping to launch my latest crime novel and to the photographer, Malcolm Wells.  It was tremendous fun.

Also in June I will be at Portsmouth International Port to help them launch the celebrations of their 40th anniversary. On June 1st there will be a cake, the cutting of a ribbon by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and an exhibition showing the growth of the Port from just one route to France, from a small section of reclaimed harbour front, to becoming one of  Britain’s Best Connected Port with more destinations than any other UK Port.
