Today sees the publication as an unabridged audio book of the fifth in the marine mystery series of police procedural crime novels featuring the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton Blood on the Sand.
Read by the accomplished actor, Gordon Griffin, Blood on the Sand is published by Isis Publishing and is available in cassette and CD format and as a download.
Blood on the Sand is published in the UK and the USA by Severn House and has received rave reviews in the States. Reviewer Booklist says: 'This is 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.'
Set in the Solent area and the Isle of Wight, Blood on the Sand is already published in hardcover, trade paperback and mass market paperback. It will also be available in Large Print in December 2011. Below is the cover of the mass market paperback version.
Inspector Andy Horton’s holiday peace is shattered when stepping out across an abandoned golf course on the Isle of Wight on a cold, grey January, he finds himself facing a distraught young woman with a gun in her hand leaning over a corpse in one of the discarded bunkers. When she professes to be the dead man’s sister and psychic, Horton’s old adversary, DCI Birch, is convinced she is mentally disturbed and the killer, but Horton is not so sure. Soon he is uncovering a web of intrigue that ripples down the years, and which someone is determined should never be revealed.
I received my author copy of the unabridged audio book of Blood on the Sand this week and am delighted with it.
