I received my author copies of the latest DI Andy Horton marine mysteryto be published as an unabridged audio book yesterday and it looks and sounds great. Dead Man’s Wharf is the fourth in the marine mystery series of crime novels featuring Inspector Andy Horton and is set in Portsmouth and the Solent area. It was chosen as the Best of British Crime Fiction by The Book Depository and given a star rated review by USA reviewer, Kirkus. It is also available as an e book, in hardcover and trade paperback (although I think they have sold out of the hardcover and trade paperback) but it will be published as a mass market paperback on 11 March 2011.
Dead Man’s Wharf is published by Isis Publishing, the World’s leading publisher of unabridged audio books, who have also bought the rights to the fifth in the series, Blood on the Sand, due to be published as an audio book and digital download later in the year.
Dead Man’s Wharf has been released in CD and cassette form and as a download. It is read by Gordon Griffin an actor with over forty years experience who has appeared in a number of plays and television performances, and who also reads audio books by James Patterson and Patrick O’Brian.
Blood on the Sand, the fifth in the DI Andy Horton marine mystery series is set primarily on the Isle of Wight. It will be published as an audio book later this year and is currently available as an e book, in hardcover and trade paperback (again I think these have sold out) but it will be published as a mass market paperback on 11 April 2011. Blood on the Sand was given a rave review by USA reviewer Booklist who likened my writing to that of Ed McBain.
I’m really pleased with the audio books, not only do audio books appeal to the visually sighted but they are also increasingly popular with those who enjoy listening while on the move in the car or exercising.
