Watch the fabulous trailer for DEATH IN THE COVE a new mystery by Pauline Rowson

DEATH IN THE COVE, Pauline Rowson's new 1950 set mystery, available in paperback, e book, Kindle, Kobo and in audio book, narrated by Jonathan Rhodes.

Death in the Cove set in 1950 England

Death in the Cove, an Inspector Alun Ryga 1950 mystery DEATH IN THE COVE introduces Scotland Yard detective Inspector Alun Ryga who is sent to investigate a baffling murder on the Island of Portland in Dorset.  Death in the Cove is set in 1950, when memories of the war are strong, austerity and rationing are still in place, and fears of more world conflicts haunt people. Society and policing in the 1950s was vastly different to today, no mobile phones, no dashing about, no computers, so it was fascinating to research & write.

'Death in the Cove is a great read and one I recommend to any crime fans.' BH Living Magazine.

When the body of a man wearing a pinstriped suit is found in a secluded bay on Portland Island, Dorset Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Alun Ryga, is sent to investigate.

Teabags and butter-fascinating facts from my 1950s set mystery DEATH IN THE COVE

Here are two snippets that I had to check while writing the novel.

Tea bags

Teapot and tea cupI had a character putting a teabag into the teapot and thought, hold on, were teabags in use in 1950? They were in America but didn’t come in general use or sale in the UK until 1953.


bread and butterI also had to check on rationing because I couldn’t have someone liberally applying butter to a piece of toast or bread when butter was still on ration!

Butter was on ration in the UK until 1953.

Death in the Cove audio book by Pauline Rowson
"Ryga studied the face of the dead man with interest. Death no longer had the power to shock him. He’d seen too much of it. That didn’t mean he didn’t feel sorrow, pity, anger or despair, or sometimes all four emotions and in such a swift succession that they became one. This time he felt none of these, only professional curiosity.”

'What a ripping yarn! Just pure detection mixed with a bit of history. Love these new characters & the setting is great. Thankfully the hero remained chaste in keeping with the times. Very well done.'

Available as an audio book narrated by Jonathan Rhodes and published by B7 Media. Download the audio book.
