Publication of the Paperback and Kindle versions of the DI Horton Crime Novel Footsteps on the Shore by Pauline Rowson

 Footsteps on the Shore, the sixth in the DI Andy Horton series of marine mystery crime novels set on the South Coast of England, is to be published in paperback on 25 August by Severn House Paperbacks and as an ebook on 1 September by Severn House Digital.

Footsteps on the Shore has received some great reviews from the States. It was first published in hardcover earlier this year. It was given a starred review by Booklist who said:

'It deserves mention in the same breath as works in the upper echelon of American procedurals (those by Ed McBain or Joseph Wambaugh for example) and their British counterparts, including the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms.'

Footsteps on the Shore is number six in the DI Andy Horton series of police procedural crime novels set against the backdrop of the sea in the Solent area on the South Coast of England, in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
