Blood on the Sand
A DI Andy Horton Mystery (5)
By Pauline Rowson
'Like Ed McBain, Rowson works many subtle variations on the procedural formula (including very interesting relationships between Andy and a couple of his superiors). A definite winner in the crowded field of British procedurals.' - Booklist
A body in a bunker on a disused golf course, a woman with a gun, and a web of international intrigue... DI Andy Horton's holiday peace is shattered when stepping out across an abandoned golf course on the Isle of Wight on a cold, grey January morning, he finds himself facing a distraught young woman with a gun in her hand, leaning over a corpse in one of the discarded bunkers.
When she professes to be the dead man's sister and psychic, Horton's old adversary, DCI Birch, is convinced she is a mentally disturbed killer, but Horton is not so sure. Soon he is uncovering a web of intrigue that ripples down the years, and which someone is determined should never be revealed... A complex, compelling mystery full of atmosphere, menace and action.
'Pauline Rowson just keeps getting better and better...I love her style of writing and the DI Horton series is very well written indeed. Looking forward to the rest of the series...I am "binge reading" at the moment...to coin a popular phrase from the "box set generation"...' - Reader Review on Amazon
