September sees the re-publication of my three Art Marvik mystery thrillers,
SILENT RUNNING, DANGEROUS CARGO, and LOST VOYAGE. Also in September I'll be featuring articles on my website about the
inspiration behind each of the three Marvik mysteries and in the
absence of giving any talks because of Covid-19 I'll be taking a look
back at my talks and interviews in previous years. On the writing front you can take a peek at where I work! I'm working on revisions for number three in the 1950s
set Inspector Ryga mysteries, on the first draft of DI Andy Horton
number sixteen and revisions of Marvik mystery thriller number 4. Plenty to keep me out of mischief.
After leaving the Royal Marines, Art Marvik, a former
Special Boat Services Officer with the Commandos goes undercover to work
for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad. His three missions
with the squad take him into dangerous and deadly waters as he seeks to
find lethal killers whose crimes are steeped in the past.
"A likeable, smart, tough, but all
too human hero.
A tense, terrifying
thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.A cracking-good new series - action fans need Marvik on their radar."
Booklist - SILENT RUNNING
'The sort of book where you can’t look away for a
second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of
misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review - DANGEROUS CARGO
"Plenty of action, I didn't want to put the book down. A good read for mystery/ thriller fans." Net Galley- LOST VOYAGE
LETHAL WAVES is available in paperback, e book, on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Apple and Google Books
The book opens in Guernsey when Inspector Andy
Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States
of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a woman is found dead in her
cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. When the idea for this
crime novel came to me I contacted Condor Ferries and asked if they
would mind me using one of their ferries as one of the settings. I am
delighted to say they gave permission and went further than that in
offering to open up the ship for my research and for the launch of
LETHAL WAVES some eighteen months later.
is where I work, with the fabulous Roger Moore looking down on me
providing me with inspiration. On the right hand wall is the location
map of where Inspector Ryga number 3 is set Brixham, Devon. That
particular 1950s set mystery will be published in 2021. Meanwhile number
2 in the Inspector Ryga series, DEATH IN THE HARBOUR is published on 2
November 2020 in paperback, ebook and Kindle and is available to
The inspiration for DEATH SURGE, number 10 in the series of 15, came
like all the other novels in the Inspector Andy Horton police procedural
series featuring my flawed and rugged Portsmouth detective from the
location. It is locations that inspire me and with the Horton series,
set against the powerfully evocative British marine landscape of the
Solent on the South Coast of England, there is always a good place to
put a body.
'A crisply written, cleverly plotted procedural with a nice twist.' Booklist USA
As I write both contemporary crime fiction and historical mysteries
I can say that from my point of view they both have their challenges
and pleasures. In this article I look at the pros and cons of writing in
As there are no talks in 2020,
