My latest crime novel Dead Man’s Wharf was published in America on 1 July 2009 in hardcover. I'm delighted that it has immediately received an excellent review from Kirkus Book Reviews.
Kirkus Reviews is published 24 times annually, with nearly 5,000 book reviews each year. It is one of the most prestigious names in the publishing industry and is read by publishers, libraries, agents, film and television studio producers, as well as commercial booksellers.

Here is what they say about Dead Man's Wharf:

‘Rowson turns out an exemplary procedural with the requisite plot twists, double-crosses and all loose ends tied up neatly in a sailor’s knot.’

Dead Man’s Wharf was published in hardcover in the UK in April 2009. It is the fourth in the marine mystery series of crime novels to feature the flawed and rugged Inspector Andy Horton, whose patch is Portsmouth CID on the south coast of England.

You can read an extract from Dead Man's Wharf on my official web site.

Congrats from me also. Kirkus has not done as well by me and I'm envious. But then Kirkus has never liked my novels enough for a star, curse them. :)

Looking forward to reading this, Pauline. Sounds like a winner.

Thanks, that's very kind of you. I also noticed that I am the only British author out of the six starred reviews chosen - the others are American - and my novel is the only one set in the UK.

Congratulations both on the publication in the US and the great review from Kirkus!
