It's August and DI Andy Horton is on his first investigation in TIDE OF DEATH

Tide of Death - the first in the DI Andy Horton Series by Pauline Rowson

TIDE OF DEATH is the first in the Inspector Andy Horton crime series of currently fifteen with number sixteen to be published in 2022. As this crime novel takes place in August I thought I would feature it on my blog.

It is Horton’s second day back in Portsmouth CID following an eight month suspension on a charge of gross misconduct. Determined to prove his innocence of the charges that have wrecked his career and his marriage Horton finds his personal investigations sidelined when he discovers the naked body of a man on the beach while he is out running on a foggy August morning.

Aided by Sergeant Cantelli, Horton sets out to find a killer who will stop at nothing to cover his tracks. As he starts to uncover dark secrets that someone would rather not have exposed, he risks not only his career but also his life.

Portsmouth DI Andy Horton's PatchTIDE OF DEATH, like all the DI Andy Horton crime novels is set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England.

Inspector Andy Horton

Inspector Andy Horton is a flawed and rugged cop, instinctive, tough and resilient, but deeply empathetic.A man very  much defined by a tormented past, but with hopes for his future.Living on board his small yacht in Southsea Marina since his estrangement from his wife, he's rarely at peace, unless he is on the sea. When fighting crime he is prepared to take risks and is fearless in his search for justice. He's been raised in children's homes and foster homes after his mother abandoned him as a child. He has a desperate need to belong and yet is always on the outside. Being alone is his greatest fear, yet he is alone.

He's been described as an "especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage"  and the DI Andy Horton novels as "A great British detective crime series."

After TIDE OF DEATH, Horton goes on to solve many crimes.  Click on the link below for the order of the DI Andy Horton crime novels.  They are available in paperback, as ebooks and on Amazon Kindle.  Some are also available as audio books.

I hope you enjoy them.
