On location with DI Andy Horton in Fatal Catch now re-issued in paperback and as an ebook

Fatal Catch a DI Andy Horton Mystery by Pauline RowsonFATAL CATCH, is the twelfth in the Inspector Andy Horton series of fourteen and soon to be fifteen with A DEADLY WAKE published in June 2020. Like all my crime novels it is set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England.

Horton's patch is Portsmouth and the Solent across to the Isle of Wight and into the harbours of Langstone, Fareham and sometimes Chichester. The Solent offers up every kind of sailing vessel you could wish for from giant container ships to ferries, naval ships to leisure craft, fishing boats and even a regular hovercraft service. It also offers up some rather gruesome findings as Horton investigates in FATAL CATCH.

Here are some photographs of the locations used in Fatal Catch. (Click on the images to enlarge them)
