Pauline Rowson is the author of the contemporary crime novels featuring the flawed and rugged Inspector Andy Horton whose patch is Portsmouth CID, the Solent and the Isle of Wight on the south coast of England. Her crime novels have been hailed as the 'Best of British Crime Fiction,' exemplary procedurals,' 'an entertaining read in an engaging series,' and her writing likened in the USA to that of Ed McBain. She is also the author of two fast-paced, thrillers one of which is In Cold Daylight which was voted by the public as one of the top ten best reads for World Book Day. Her Marine Mysteries, Tide of Death, Deadly Waters, The Suffocating Sea, Dead Man's Wharf, Blood on the Sand and Footsteps on the Shore and her thrillers In Cold Daylight, and In for the Kill are based around the Solent, but her books have an international readership and have been translated into several languages. Pauline was longlisted for the prestigious Dagger in the Library Award 2008.
Another solid entry in a consistently well written series. Like Ed McBain, Rowson works many subtle variations on the procedural formula (including very interesting relationships between Andy and a couple of his superiors). A definite winner in the crowded field of British procedurals. Booklist A rapid fire tale. Kirkus Reviews The very tight plotting was very impressive and make me want to look out for further books by this author. A very enjoyable read. Eurocrime
