Death in the Harbour an Inspector Ryga mystery by Pauline RowsonDelighted 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?

How research on the Island of Portland inspired two crime novels

Isle of Portland, DorsetI 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.

Swanage, Dorset, featured in Art Marvik Dangerous Cargo 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

Up a mountain and up north library book tour fun

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.
