Delighted to announce that the new Inspector Ryga Mystery, DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, is now published in paperback, e book, Amazon Kindle and as an audio book. Many thanks if you who have already bought it! And if you have time don't forget to leave a review or rating on Amazon or the relevant bookseller's website.
In these grim Covid-19 pandemic days it's probably nice to escape into another time and another world whether that be 1950s with Inspector Ryga, or in a fictitious present with the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton. And if you fancy a taste of adventure, and thrillers are more your style, then there's always undercover investigator former Royal Marine Commando Art Marvik. My books are available to buy on line from many independent bookshops, major booksellers and of course Amazon, and can also be loaned remotely from libraries.
Happy November and P.S. don't forget Christmas is coming... books... gifts...need I say more?

Scotland Yard's Inspector Alun Ryga is sent to Newhaven, East Sussex to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his wife has gone missing. "Pure detection… a great read.
Video book trailer - the Inspector Ryga Mysteries
The 1950s set Inspector Ryga Mystery series features Scotland Yard detective, Ryga, who is sent out to investigate baffling coastal crimes. Ryga, a former German prisoner-of-war, teams up with former war photographer, Eva Paisley, in the first in the series, DEATH IN THE COVE set on the Island of Portland, Dorset, and again in DEATH IN THE HARBOUR set in Newhaven Port, East Sussex. It is a partnership set to continue and destined to solve many more multi-layered coastal crimes.
I first fell in love with the Royal Island of Portland in Dorset while researching for one of my Art Marvik mystery thrillers, DANGEROUS CARGO, no. 2 in the series, which is set on the Jurassic coast of Dorset. I was so taken with the island's rugged coastline, its wild beauty, scarred landscape of abandoned quarries and isolated bays that I felt compelled to set another crime novel there, this time Portland of the past. DEATH IN THE COVE, the first in the 1950s set Inspector Ryga mysteries is therefore set on the island, when Scotland Yard detective, Ryga, is sent there to investigate the death of a man wearing a pin striped suit found on the secluded Chuch Ope Cove. Here he meets war photographer, Eva Paisley.
The mystery thriller DANGEROUS CARGO opens in the Dorset coastal town of Swanage where Marvik is detailed to attend the funeral of a man who’d officially been declared dead fifty-five years earlier. So who is the imposter and why did he assume the name of a dead man? What’s more, why did he suddenly show up in a Dorset coastal town in 1989, hook up with a local fishing family, and after fathering a child, disappear in 1990?
'Rowson’s superhero, Art Marvik, returns in another pulse-pounding adventure. Delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading.' Booklist
Here's a snappy little fun video I put together of my library book tours up north and in South Wales. It was compiled to celebrate Libraries Week in October but my thanks goes out all year round, to all libraries and to all my lovely readers.
Libraries change lives. One small library in Portsmouth changed mine as a child, without it I would never have discovered the joy of reading and writing. Thank you Alderman Lacey Library in Portsmouth.
This one looks at some of the fab libraries and readers I've entertained in the South and West of England, talking about my fictional crime busting heroes and how I write my coastal based crime novels. I hope you enjoy it!
