This week, 27 January, sees the publication of the new Inspector Andy Horton Marine Mystery Crime Novel, the sixth in the series, set against the backdrop of the Solent on the South Coast of England.
Footsteps on the Shore once again features the rugged Harley Davidson riding and sailing detective, Andy Horton assisted by Sergeant Cantelli and often thwarted by his boss DCI Lorraine Bliss, and head of the major crime team, Detective Superintendent Uckfield.
Friday the thirteenth begins badly for DI Andy Horton when he wakes to find his Harley has been vandalized and his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, has returned early from her secondment to HQ. Then, convicted murderer, Luke Felton, released on licence, is reported missing and a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get a grip on either case, he’s called to a house where a woman he’d only met the day before has been brutally murdered. Is missing Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is it his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective …
Footsteps on the Shoreis published in hardcover by Severn House and is available from bookshops and on line.
It will be published as an e book later in the year.
