On location with DI Andy Horton in Lethal Waves


LETHAL WAVES is being re-isssued on 3 August 2020 in paperback, e book on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple and Google Books - available to pre-order

On his return from Guernsey, Horton is called out to investigate the death of a vagrant whose body is found under a rotting houseboat on the shores of Portsmouth.



"Nothing in this police procedural is as it first appears. The Harley Davidson-riding, boat-dwelling Horton is a fascinating man to get to know, and his thoughtful approach to detection is a pleasure to read." Publishers Weekly

"This heart-breaking story of ambition, greed, jealousy, and revenge makes a good choice for fans of no-nonsense British procedurals." Booklist

Go on location with the flawed and rugged Portsmouth detective, Inspector Andy Horton in LETHAL WAVES (13)





Condor Ferry Sailing out of Portsmouth The Commodore Clipper ferry, which sails from Portsmouth to the Channel Islands, is so much an integral part of Portsmouth and the Solent, the setting for my Detective Inspector Andy Horton crime novels, that it was inevitable I would feature it at some stage. The perfect opportunity came when Andy Horton, in the search for the truth behind his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago discovers a clue that leads him to the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey. Hence him being there when the body on the ferry is found.


Cabin on the Condor Commodore Clipper FerryDI Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. There doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances. It's not Horton's case.





Southsea Marina, PortsmouthBut as soon as Horton returns to Portsmouth he's called in to investigate the death of a vagrant found lying partially covered under a rotting houseboat, close to where Horton lives on board his small yacht in Southsea Marina.






Wrecked Houseboat, PortsmouthThis time, it’s clearly murder. Troubled by the many unanswered questions surrounding both deaths, Horton must call upon all his skills and intuition to solve a complex case, uncovering dark secrets that have led to such lethal waves of destruction.






Portsmouth, setting for Inspector Andy Horton crime novelsAll my crime novels are set against the backdrop of the sea and I particularly love that self-contained feel of island settings. Andy Horton’s patch is Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, both islands, but I fell in love with Guernsey when I visited it on holiday.






Captain Leake , Condor Ferry and Pauline Rowson crime author I’m very grateful to Condor and the Captain and crew for all their help while researching Lethal Waves.
