More About the Author

British crime writer, Pauline Rowson, author of the DI Andy Horton crime series, has been hailed as "redefining the genre of the police drama" by setting it against the atmospheric backdrop of the ever changing sea. Her cops are tough yet fallible. The DI Andy Horton series of crime novels has everything: compelling crimes, complex past history, a tough work environment, romantic entanglements and political intrigue played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of Portsmouth and the Solent. She is also author of two stand alone crime thriller novels.

"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." Booklist

'Like Rebus, Rowson's DI Andy Horton is a detective who does not always work within the rules. As with all Rowson's novels the ending is dramatic and deeply menacing. If you are a fan of traditional detective fiction in a vivid setting that makes you believe that you are there, you will love this one.' Mystery People Magazine

'Like Ed McBain, Rowson works many subtle variations on the procedural formula (including very interesting relationships between Andy and a couple of his superiors). A definite winner in the crowded field of British procedurals.' Booklist

Pauline Rowson is also the author of several marketing and motivational books and an entertaining and inspirational speaker. Visit her website at www.rowmark.co.uk.

From the Publisher

Short Listed for World Book Day 2008

IN COLD DAYLIGHT is a hard hitting thriller inspired by a tragic true story of fire-fighters killed in the line of duty and a potential cover up over their deaths. Unravelling Rowson's cryptic clues in this fast-paced, atmospheric novel, is like playing a thrilling game of `pass the parcel'. After unexpected twists, you peel off the layers of literary wrapping, which eventually uncover the mystery. But instead of featuring a brave fire-fighter hero, Rowson has chosen to tell the story through the eyes of a man who is the opposite. This is marine artist, Adam Greene's journey through overcoming depression, a nervous breakdown and leaning on the prop of his strong-willed, ambitious wife as much as discovering why his best friend, Jack Bartholomew was killed in the line of duty. The fact that she has decided to tell this real life mystery and her fast paced writing is what makes this new writer so original.

Format: Paperback
This is the second of Ms Rowson's novels I have read - the first {Tide of Death) took me by surprise with its twists and turns (never mind the ending!) so this time I thought 'I'm ready for this - I will work it out before all is revealed.' Alas, I failed again. So the challenge is now upon me - can I find out the mysteries of her next book before she reveals all?

Format: Paperback
I bought a few of these books for my husband as we are local to the area in which they are set. He felt none of the stories had any backbone, lacked excitement and were extremly predictable. The only reason he finished each one was in the hope the storyline would improve, which never materialized.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because the reviews for this writer were consistently good but I can only assume she has written them herself. The writing is inept - doubt if there is any sentence longer than six words in the whole book - the plot was both tedious and ridiculous and the characters were just strange, cardboard cut-outs. Can someone please explain the appeal of this writer to me?

The Kindle edition says this is a DI Andy Horton novel. It isn't,. The plot itself is ok but rather far fetched. I can't say any more without spoiling it. The characters are not very developed and there are no spaces between the chapters - it all runs together.
It's 3 stars from me - I finished it but wouldn't rush out to buy another from Ms Rowson.
