I'm often asked how I research police procedures and police matters for my crime novels and while the DI Horton crime series certainly doesn't conform to policing in the real world there is an underlying reality about some of the situations and procedures.
So where do I get my research from?
From talking to real live police officers, those working on the coal face and those who have also retired and my thanks here to the officers in the CID, the Major Crime Unit and the…

Just as in CrimeFest 2010 this year’s CrimeFest was again a glorious hot day with wall-to-wall sunshine in Bristol. Not the best time to be closeted inside the Royal Marriott Hotel but a very pleasant one to be strolling along the regenerated dock area and catching the little ferry across the narrow strip of water, which I managed to do. It was great to be back on the water, albeit for about two minutes, and I wondered whether DI Horton might take a trip into Bristol on his yacht one day.…Continue

Over a hundred people turned out on a damp May day yesterday in Hook in Hampshire to hear me talk about my Solent based thrillers and my marine mystery detective crime novels featuring the hunky DI Andy Horton, and what a marvellous audience they were.

I am frequently asked questions about the cover designs for many of the DI Horton crime series so I thought it was about time I exposed the genius behind some of the broody and evocative covers that grace the bookstore and library shelves in the UK and the USA and which are seen on various web sites including, of course,…Continue

Here are the photographs from yesterday's interview on Vectis Radio when I was on air with Pete Walkden talking about my marine mystery crime novels and thrillers set in the Solent area.
