About Inspector Ryga



Ryga's experience at sea, and as a prisoner-of-war, has made him unique in his approach to solving coastal based crimes.  He's observant, analytical and reflective.  He's witnessed compassion, cruelty, cowardice and heroism, mental breakdown and despair. He’s made a promise to himself that whatever happens after the war he’ll keep an open mind and never judge. 

Whereas Ryga is quiet, reflective, analytical, Eva is very self-assured.  She’s forthright, sociable, and comfortable in her own skin, professional with a successful career, a formidable reputation behind her, along with a taste for danger. Her observations seen through the lens of her camera are disturbing, enlightening and thought provoking.

They make a formidable team - villains beware! 

Published in paperback, ebook, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple Books, Google Books. DEATH IN THE COVE and DEATH IN THE HARBOUR are also available as audio books narrated by Jonathan Rhodes and published by B7 Media available on Audible.
