Dangerous Cargo the second Art Marvik mystery thriller

Swanage, Dorset, featured in Art Marvik Dangerous Cargo The mystery thriller DANGEROUS CARGO ( no 2 in the series) opens in the Dorset coastal town of Swanage where Marvik is 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? What’s more, why did he suddenly show up in a Dorset coastal town in 1989, hook up with a local fishing family, and after fathering a child, disappear in 1990?

When an innocent woman is killed during the course of the investigation, 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.

His quest takes him along the stunning, atmospheric Dorset coast  from Weymouth to Lyme Regis.  I enjoyed my time conducting location research there for this mystery novel.

One of the settings for Art Marvik mystery Dangerous Cargo by Pauline Rowson'Dangerous Cargo is the sort of book where you can’t look away for a second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review

About Art Marvik

Former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer Art Marvik is tough, highly trained, fearless, intelligent and fit. He isn’t bound by the rules of law. Injuries inflicted while in combat have forced him to leave the marines and seek a new life in Civvy Street. In the first in the series, SILENT RUNNING he's recruited by Detective Chief Superintendent Crowder of the UK's covert National Intelligence Marine Squad to work undercover, aided by his former Royal Marine colleague, Shaun Strathan, an intelligence and computer analyst. Marvik's missions are to go into investigations cold within the minimum information, to act as bait to reveal killers whose crimes are both recent and hark back to the past.
