The Suffocating Sea
A DI Andy Horton Mystery (3)

By Pauline Rowson

'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.' - Kirkus 

'A gripping, suspense filled murder case...entertaining read in an engaging series...' - Booklist 


DI Horton is called to investigate a suspicious fire on board a boat, but as soon as he arrives at the marina he experiences a premonition so strong that it's almost audible. As he views the charred remains of the dead man he knows instinctively that this investigation will be like no other, and he's right. Soon Horton is forced to confront the past, not just the victim' past, but the mystery surrounding his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago.


As the pieces of a long ago puzzle begin to unravel, it soon becomes clear to Horton that this is one case someone is determined he should never solve - masterminded by a dangerous adversary who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from coming out...


'Pauline Rowson is a high calibre author and I'm rather pleased I started late and with the first of her DI Horton novels. Here characterisations and local area familiarity builds from the first of this series and although the first book was a tad slow..this one is moving along a-pace now and I look forward to this trend continuing.' - Reader Review on Amazon
