Ah, October, where has the year gone? Even with all the upheaval of Covid-19 time seems to be flying by. In this newsletter if you're an audio book fan then many of my novels are available to listen to. Coming soon is DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Inspector Ryga 2 which is also published in paperback, ebook and Kindle on 2 November - watch the book trailer; a focus on Marvik mystery thriller 1. SILENT RUNNING; an article on how writing crime fiction can give the author control and two new video uploads, one on the DI Andy Horton series and the other a snappy little fun look at my library talks of the past way down south - of England that is - (fun video of my talks up north and in South Wales to come next month). Do get in touch if you have any comments or queries.
Then why not share in the adventures of the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton or former Royal Marine Commando turned undercover investigator, Art Marvik and, my latest fictional sleuth, Inspector Alun Ryga in the intriguing 1950 set mystery DEATH IN THE COVE.
We're delighted to announce that the second in the series DEATH IN THE HARBOUR will be released as an audio book later this month from the producer B7 Media. It will be available on Audible late November and will be out in paperback, e book, and Kindle on 2 November 2020. You can pre-order a copy on Amazon.or from your local bookshop. It will also hopefully be available for loan in UK and Commonwealth Libraries.
Countdown to publication - Inspector Ryga 2 - DEATH IN THE HARBOUR - out 2 November 2020
England 1950 - open fires, coal dust and soot. Fog and smog. Trams, trolley buses and steam trains. Children playing in the street, on a recreation ground and on bombsites. Wednesday half day closing, Sundays the shops are shut. Capital punishment, rationing and austerity. An era caught between the aftermath of the war and the social revolution of the sixties. Enter Inspector Ryga and war photographer, Eva Paisley.
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.”
Myra Swinley is convinced that her police constable husband’s death was no accident, and that he would never have lost his footing on a dark, foggy November night on the quayside of Newhaven Harbour while on his beat. Determined to get to the truth she visits Scotland Yard to ask his former friend, Detective Superintendent Street, to investigate. Street says they have no basis to do so, but when Myra fails to return home from her visit to the Yard, Inspector Ryga is sent down to the Sussex coast to investigate.
Accompanied by former war photographer, Eva Paisley, who has been airlifted back to England after suffering a wound incurred in Korea, Ryga’s investigation soon begins to uncover some puzzling facts. Painstakingly, and with Eva’s assistance, Ryga begins to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his sensible law-abiding wife has gone missing.
Published in paperback, as an e book, on Kobo and Amazon Kindle on 2 November. Available for pre-order

The relationship between writers and their characters takes many forms. For me some characters I have created are irritating, others entertain me. Some make me feel cuddly and comfortable, while others I positively loath. And some I love. Quite often (especially in difficult times - as I update this article we are in the grip of a worldwide pandemic (Covid-19)) I love to escape with my characters to my fictional world. Here I can create order out of chaos and I have control. But before you call for the men in white coats I assure you I am quite sane, well as sane as any writer (and especially a crime writer can be – after all we kill people for a living).
Catch a glimpse of the gripping, multilayered Inspector Andy Horton crime novels in this new video. Full of twists and turns an entertaining read in and engaging series. Available in paperback, ebook, kobo, kindle and some as audio books. Can also be borrowed from libraries in the UK, Commonwealth and USA.
