Lethal Waves, a DI Andy Horton Mystery (13)

Author(s): Pauline Rowson

Location(s): Hampshire, Channel Islands

Genre(s): Crime, Mystery

Era(s): Contemporary

Inspector 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. While there doesn’t appear to be any suspicious circumstances, as soon as Horton returns to Portsmouth he’s called in to investigate the death of a vagrant found lying partially covered under a rotting houseboat close to Horton’s boat in the marina. This time, it’s clearly murder and what’s more there could be a disturbing link with the death of the woman in the cabin. Troubled by the many unanswered questions surrounding both deaths, Horton must call upon all his skills and intuition to solve a complex case, uncovering dark secrets of ambition and greed that have led to such lethal waves of destruction.
