Footsteps on the Shore, is a detective novel in the tradition of Rankin and Harvey. This is the first book by Rowson I have read and the 6th in the series. Her continuing character is DI Andy Horton and this story is set in the Solent area.

Footsteps on the Shore, is a detective novel in the tradition of Rankin and Harvey. Like Rebus, Rowson's DI Andy Horton, if not a loose cannon, is a detective who does not always work within the rules. As with all Rowson's novels the ending is dramatic and deeply menacing. A couple of her earlier novels had won awards which is why I picked this one up, maybe I should have read one of those because I can't see it here.

The new Detective Inspector Horton mystery - Horton and Cantelli are called to a nursing home where an elderly resident claims shes been attacked by an intruder. Ready to dismiss it as senile ramblings, Horton then discovers that her room-mate has died, the dead womans belongings are missing and her son, convicted for armed robbery, has been found dead in his cell. Soon Horton finds he is caught up in a complex investigation that has far-reaching international implications. Authors: Pauline Rowson. Horton could see buoys in the harbour and a handful of boats moored to them, but not Shorena it seemed, according to Elkins. If Luke Felton was Venetia Trotman’s killer then it was possible he’d taken her yacht out through Portsmouth Harbour in the early hours of Friday morning, which meant he couldn’t have been pilled up or he wouldn’t have got far without having an accident.

That was to the north of the city, where Kempton Marine was based: Luke Felton’s employer, and Catherine’s

The bedraggled PC hurried back to the shore while Horton stayed to watch the rotting corpse being scraped off the mud and lifted into a body bag before being placed on the trolley and wheeled away. It wasn’t a pleasant experience. He examined the area where the corpse had lain. That was to the north of the city, where Kempton Marine was based: Luke Felton’s employer, and Catherine’s. Would she be there now, Horton wondered with a quickening heartbeat? Would he get the chance to talk to her?

DI Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a smartly dressed, affluent woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. There doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances.

DI Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a smartly dressed, affluent woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. As soon as he returns to Portsmouth, however, he is called to the scene where a vagrant’s body has been found lying partially covered under one of the rotting houseboats close to Horton’s boat in the marina. This time, it’s clearly murder.

The new Detective Inspector Horton mystery - Friday the thirteenth starts badly for DI Andy Horton. Convicted Murderer, Luke Felton, has gone missing, at the same time a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get to grips with either case, he is called to the house of a woman he had met only the day before, to find her brutally murderer. Is Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure, and little does he suspect that things are about to get a whole lot worse.

Never less than entertaining, sometimes a little overcomplicated. It helps to know the previous books in the series for many actions of Inspector Andy Horton are heavily influenced by his past. The plots are somehow schematic and Horton's behaviour often predictible (he is a lone wolf with personal and professional problems, many of which are caused by his rather sociopathic and self-destructing nature), yet Ms. Rowson can certainly create tension and suspense. Everyone enjoying the work of Ian Rankin, Henning Mankell or Jo Nesbo will definitely like this one (and the other books of the series). A bit of dry cynical humour, a lot of police work that can hardly be called standard. I am already looking forward to the next book titled A Killing Coast.

Another great book by an author new to me. I am hoping to read more to be able to give an adequate review of this author. This book however was great.

The overall rating is 3. I thought that the narrator did an OK Job at 3 but I wasn't engaged by the story so it got a 2 1/2.

This is the first book by Rowson I have read and the 6th in the series. Her continuing character is DI Andy Horton and this story is set in the Solent area. A couple of her earlier novels had won awards which is why I picked this one up, maybe I should have read one of those because I can't see it here.

DI Andy Horton has every police procedural cliche that I can think of: a superior who hates him and wants to undermine him while claiming credit for his successes. The superior is a totally unsympathetic female character. He also so has an unfaithful almost ex-wife with a wealthy father and who tries to keep him away from their eight year old daughter because Horton was falsely accused of rape in some previous book. The almost ex-wife's lover is fat and pusillanimous. He wears leathers and rides a Harley. His mother left him as a child and he was reared by mainly abusive foster parents. He lives on a yacht moored at a marina. I could list police procedurals where all of these tropes appeared, admittedly not all at once, and where they contributed to a compelling read.

What DI Horton lacks is believability or any reason to want to read about him. I also wonder why all of the women in the book are either dead, disappeared, promiscuous, duped by men, or actively vicious. Any overweight character is depicted as criminal or immoral. Some authors are able to bring even minor, unattractive characters to life with a few lines, but Rowson is not one of them-- at least not in this book.

There is also one of my least favorite denouements where the villain explains in detail what was done to outwit the police and why it was done.

Read by Gordon Griffith not one of my favorite narrators but not actively annoying here. On my iphone Audible app I could put the speed on 1.25X which helped some.
