The New Year and 2012 promises to be an exciting year with lots already lined up. It begins with the publication in the UK on 26 January of the NEW DI Andy Horton marine mystery crime novel, the seventh in the DI Horton series, A Killing Coast. Publication in the USA follows on 1 May 2012.
A Killing Coast, is published on 26 January in the UK in hardcover by Severn House and on 1 May in the USA.
"When a body is found floating in the sea off Portsmouth harbour, Detective Inspector Horton initially judges it to be an accidental death. Soon though, to his dismay, he discovers he’s got it very wrong. Accused of being incompetent by his boss, and with the head of the Major Crime Team coming down heavily on him, Horton wonders if he’s allowed his ongoing investigation into the disappearance of his mother to cloud his judgement. With no clear motive for the murder, Horton is sucked into a baffling investigation that he is determined to resolve despite the odds. Not only does he need to find a brutal killer, but Horton now has to prove to himself, and others, that he is still up to the job."
