Pauline Rowson - One of Britain's most exciting crime writers speaks to Expatsradio.com
Adventure, mystery and heroes have always fascinated Pauline Rowson. That and her love of the sea led her to create an exciting and unique series of crime novels set against the atmospheric backdrop of the Solent on the South Coast of England, where she lives.
Pauline Rowson’s Solent based marine mystery crime series features the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton who appears in nine novels. Her crime novels have been highly acclaimed both in the UK and the USA and have been hailed as the ‘Best of British Crime Fiction’ and ‘exemplary police procedurals.’ Her writing has been described as being ‘as sharp as a punch in the ribs.’
First published in 2006 Pauline Rowson has rapidly built an International readership, with her novels translated into several languages including Chinese.
The marine mystery crime series doesn’t disappoint. It delivers compelling crimes, complex past history, a tough work environment, romantic entanglements and political intrigue played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative backdrop of the sea. Rowson’s cops are tough yet fallible; her characters are convincing and her plots multilayered and twisted giving surprising conclusions and a satisfying read. Fast paced with intriguing hooks they keep the reader riveted to the end.
"Andy Horton is an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms." Booklist
Pauline Rowson is also the author of two fast-paced thrillers, In Cold Daylight, which was voted the third most popular read for World Book Day 2008, and In for the Kill a compelling thriller about what happens to one man when his identity is stolen.
'I was hooked from the first page. Rowson's thrillers are a contemporary take on the classic page-turner. She weaves terrific plots around memorable characters. Attention-grabbing. Compulsive. Next one please!' Hampshire Life Magazine.
