Meet Detective Inspector Andy Horton

Meet DI Andy Horton. He’s a risk-taking Harley-Davidson-riding, sailing detective who doesn’t always play by the rules . . . which often lands him in trouble with his bosses.

Meet Detective Inspector Andy Horton


Andy Horton is fit with a strong sense of justice. He lives on board his yacht in Southsea Marina and rides a Harley-Davidson.

He never wears a suit or tie — unless it’s to go to court. He’s an instinctive copper and a man of contrasts, which often lands him in trouble with his bosses.

The setting

Portsmouth boasts a vibrant waterfront, a diverse multicultural population, an international port, a historic dockyard, and is home of the Royal Navy. Portsmouth Harbour is one of the busiest in the world — and one of the best places to hide a body, it seems. Set against the backdrop of the sea, the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight is every detective’s worst nightmare. The sea is ever-changing and often the best clues get swept away by the tide


DI Andy Horton can be on a stony or sandy beach, at an expensive marina or in a rotting boatyard. He can be boarding the police launch at the waterfront, or at the international port, or anywhere along the coast, crossing the Solent with Sergeant Dai Elkins and PC Phil Ripley of the marine unit, or on the Wightlink ferry or the hovercraft from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight on many gripping investigations.

Why not join him in these entertaining Solent Murder Mysteries.
