Author and writer living in London. Six non-fiction books, one of which (published by WIley) has been in the best-seller lists for three years since publication. Various works of fiction including two additions to the immortal "Mapp and Lucia" stories. Currently seeking a publisher for my narrative history of the Plantagenets, which was nominated for a Royal Society of Literature prize.
Pauline Rowson kindly sent me a copy of Deadly Waters, the second in her series of DI Horton detective stories set in and around the town and harbour of Portsmouth on the south coast of England. I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot is well crafted, there is a good sense of place, and there are some fascinating conflicts within the police establishment which are doubtless to be exploited to the full in future books in the series. If you're looking for a new detective to add to your bookshelves, The Tide of Death, the first in the series, would be a good place to start.
