Death Surge

(2013)
(The tenth book in the DI Andy Horton series)
A novel by

 
 
A telephone call from a frantic Sergeant Cantelli to say that his nephew, Johnnie Oslow, is missing cuts short Detective Inspector Horton's sailing trip to France. Summoned back to the Isle of Wight, Horton learns that Johnnie has not shown up for the International sailing regatta of Cowes Week on the Isle of Wight, as previously arranged. The investigation is ranked low priority by Horton's boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, who like others believes Johnnie has probably gone off with a woman. But events take a very different turn when the charred remains of a body are discovered in one of the disused tunnels at the Hilsea Lines in Portsmouth. Is it Cantelli's nephew? With the arrival of Detective Chief Superintendent Sawyer of the Intelligence Directorate and Agent Harriet Eames of Europol, what began as the hunt for a missing man becomes the search for a ruthless killer.

Set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England.

"A crisply written, cleverly plotted procedural with a nice twist.' Booklist USA

"Rowson plunges readers into the midst of the series' intricate backstory in her 10th Det. Insp. Andy Horton mystery. Within three pages, a newcomer may feel as if he or she is already catching up. The fast-paced narrative with its multiple theories, will draw readers along." Publishers Weekly

"A high quality puzzle... a devious plot. Death Surge is a taut and exciting investigation into a disappearance which turns into a murder hunt... .all very enjoyable." David Marshall

'This is an excellent police procedural by a very gifted author. The quality of her very descriptive writing is superb. I was gripped until the last page of this very well structured and plotted story. Recommended.' Eurocrime
