Inspector Ryga mystery on location in 1951

When researching for my 1950s set Inspector Ryga mystery series I need to study maps of the area for that period. Many things have changed since the 1950s, not only social aspects and policing but also geographically.

Like all my crime and thrillers novels the Inspector Ryga series is set against the backdrop of the sea. Whereas the contemporary set DI Andy Horton novels are set in the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, the 1950s set Inspector Ryga novels are set in different coastal locations.

Three Inspector Ryga Mysteries by Pauline RowsonIn the first, DEATH IN THE COVE, Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Ryga is sent to Portland Island, Dorset to investigate the death of a man in a pin-striped suit found dead in an isolated cove. In number two in the series DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Ryga is called in to investigate the murder of a police constable at the port of Newhaven in East Sussex.

And in DEATH IN THE NETS, number three, Ryga and his accomplice, photographer, Eva Paisley, are in Brixham Devon to discover why a man who has recently returned to the fishing harbour after an absence of eleven years is stabbed through the heart and tangled up in fishing nets.

I'm researching and writing the first draft of number four in the Inspector Ryga series set in Dungeness. Watch my short video which I posted on the Inspector Ryga Facebook Page.

These maps primarily from 1948 and 1950 show the Kent coastal area of Hythe, Greatstone-on-Sea and the stark, unique coast of Dungeness where Inspector Ryga is asked to investigate the murder of a woman found in the dunes. DEATH IN THE DUNES is to be published in autumn 2022.

DEATH IN THE COVE (1) DEATH IN THE HARBOUR (2) and DEATH IN THE NETS (3) available in paperback, ebook, Amazon Kindle and the first two also as audio books.
