DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Inspector Ryga number 2 is to be published in paperback, e book and audio book in November and is now available for pre-order. We're also delighted to announce the re-release of the Marvik mystery thrillers and DI Andy Horton 13, LETHAL WAVES.
With public gatherings still banned in the UK because of Covid-19 I'm taking the opportunity on my website to look back at past talks. Here's hoping my talks will resume in 2021. Also in this newsletter a link to the prologue of the latest DI Andy Horton, A DEADLY WAKE and what it takes to write a novel.
Death in the Harbour, Inspector Ryga Mystery (2) is to be published on 2 November 2020
DEATH IN THE HARBOUR is the second in the atmospheric 1950 set
mystery series featuring the thoughtful reflective Scotland Yard
detective, Inspector Alun Ryga. It is to be published

2020. It is now available to pre-order.

delighted to announce that the three fast-paced, action-packed Art
Marvik mystery thrillers by Pauline Rowson, SILENT RUNNING, DANGEROUS
CARGO and LOST VOYAGE are being re-published in paperback and as ebooks,
on Amazon Kindle, and Kobo on 14 September 2020.
After leaving the Marines, Art Marvik, a former Special Boat
Services Officer with the Commandos goes undercover to work for the UK's
National Intelligence Marine Squad. His three missions with the squad
take him into dangerous and deadly waters as he seeks to find lethal
killers whose crimes are steeped in the past.
truth behind DI Andy Horton's mother's disappearance when he was ten
years old is revealed in A DEADLY WAKE number 15 in the series published
in paperback, as an ebook on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple Books and Google
The thread of DI Andy Horton's quest for the truth about
Jennifer is weaved into each of the Horton crime novels while at the
same time Horton has a new crime to investigate. Each novel therefore
stands alone and the books don't have to be read in sequence although
some readers prefer to do so.
DI Andy Horton’s investigations into the disappearance of his
mother, Jennifer, over thirty years ago, has been touched upon in many
of the Horton novels, in which he has unearthed some startling
revelations. In this, the fifteenth in the Horton series, there are more
surprises to come. In order to help the reader quickly catch up on the
mystery of Jennifer’s disappearance, and to accompany Horton on his
final journey in his quest to get to the truth, I have included a
prologue. I have also included a cast of characaters who are connected,
in some way, with the Jennifer Horton mystery.
delighted to announce that DI Andy Horton mystery number thirteen,
LETHAL WAVES, is being re-issued in paperback, as an e book and on
Amazon Kindle on 3 August 2020 and is 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.
Publishers Weekly says, "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."
articles on how to write a crime novel or mystery novel focus on the
technicalities but few examine the emotional roller coaster that a
writer will experience in the crafting of a novel. Each stage of writing
a crime novel brings with it a range of different emotions. These range
from excitement and frustration, to relief, doubt and fear, plus a
whole lot in between. So if you experience any of these while plotting
and writing your novel you are not alone!
As there are no talks planned for June, or indeed the rest of the
year (2020) because of you know what (Covid 19) I'm featuring some of my
talks which were recorded earlier. This video was
taken at a talk I gave to members of Monks Brook U3A in 2014 on choosing titles and point of view.
There are plenty of up to date videos to watch and keep you amused on my You Tube Channel
