The game of cat and mouse begins...Following an eight month suspension for gross misconduct, Detective Inspector Andy Horton returns to his job after the charges are dropped, but the stain on his career and personal life persists.When Horton stumbles across a naked corpse, brutally bludgeoned, he sets out to find the killer. And while his colleagues want him off the case, fate has other plans.As a second body surfaces, chilling similarities send shivers down Horton's spine - is he the killer's next target? A gripping detective mystery perfect for fans of Ann Cleeves, Joy Ellis, and Rachel McLean.The Portsmouth Murders © 2023 Pauline Rowson THE DETECTIVEAbandoned as a child, DI Andy Horton grew up in a children's home. Now he lives onboard his yacht in Southsea Marina. He rides a Harley-Davidson and never wears a suit or tie — unless it's to go to court. He's an instinctive copper and a man of contrasts, which often lands him in trouble with his bosses. He has a desperate need to belong, and yet is always just on the outside. Self-contained and afraid to show his feelings, but also a risk-taker that seeks justice.THE SETTINGPortsmouth boasts a vibrant waterfront, a diverse multicultural population, an international port, a historic dockyard, and is home of the Royal Navy. Portsmouth Harbour is one of the busiest in the world — and one of the best places to hide a body, it seems. Set against the backdrop of the sea, the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight is every detective's worst nightmare. The sea is ever-changing and often the best clues get swept away by the tide.
