The NEW DI Andy Horton A Deadly Wake coming in June 2020

A Deadly Wake a DI Andy Horton MysteryI'm delighted  that the latest in the Inspector Andy Horton mystery series, A DEADLY WAKE, is to be published in June 2020 in paperback and e book.  It is number fifteen in the series and the rugged and flawed Portsmouth detective has a new mystery to solve which ultimately leads him to discovering the truth behind his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago.

Yes, Andy at last will uncover the truth behind the disappearance of his mother when he was a child of ten.  Hisinvestigations into the disappearance of Jennifer, over thirtyyears ago, has been touched upon in many of the Horton novels, in which he hasunearthed some startling revelations.  Inthis, the fifteenth in the Horton series, there are more surprises tocome.

For those who have not read the other novels, to help the readerquickly catch up on the mystery of Jennifer’s disappearance, and to accompanyHorton on his final journey in his quest to get to the truth, I have included aprologue. I have also included a cast of characters who are connected, in someway, with the Jennifer Horton mystery. 

Here's the blurb:

Inspector Andy Horton returns to his desk in Portsmouth CID after a tedious computer course in London to find there has been a series of highway robberies in his absence and an arson attack at the sailing club where the Chief Constable keeps his boat.  What’s more the Chief’s boat is one of three that have been set alight and he’s demanding action.  But when the fingerprint bureau phone Horton to tell him the prints of an unknown man found dead in a log cabin in a secluded bay on the Isle of Wight match those of someone he met six months previously, Horton’s priorities are clear. He travels to the island to identify the body but what greets him is totally unexpected.  As he follows the trail of the dead man, he uncovers some startling revelations into his own mother’s past and the truth behind her disappearance over thirty years ago.

It might be my final Inspector Horton on the other hand...?

Hope all my readers enjoy it.

A DEADLY WAKE can be pre-ordered from on line bookstores and from all your local booksellers including Waterstones and Smiths.

I look forward to the new Andy Horton mystery: A Deadly Wake, due for release in June this year.

Although you are possibly starting a new series starring Alun Ryga I just hope this is not the end of the road for Andy H.

Thank you. I hope you enjoy A Deadly Wake. I thought it might be the last Andy Horton but I keep coming up with new ideas so maybe Andy will live on to solve another mystery...?
