Crime writer set to make waves with latest Marine Mystery
Pauline Rowson and her marine mysteries are fast becoming a household name and her third thriller In For The Kill is set to establish her as one of the up and coming crime writers in the UK. (Publication date 5 February 2007). Top UK booksellers have hailed Hampshire crime writer Pauline Rowson as ‘the crime writer to watch,’ and ‘one who is clearly going places’. Her writing has been described as ‘sharp as a punch in the ribs,’ ‘attention-grabbing’ and ‘compulsive’.
In For The Kill is a fast-paced, atmospheric novel and the third in Pauline’s Marine Mystery series that was launched in February 2006 with her first two novels Tide of Death, and In Cold Daylight both of which are set in the Solent area. Tide of Death has been chosen by Amazon as one of the Best Reads of 2006 crime fiction alongside big named authors like Ian Rankin.
In For The Kill is being featured in a Borders, Books etc. and Waterstones promotion throughout February and March, and Pauline is undertaking a number of book signings and talks. Translation rights have been sold to Indonesia and In For The Kill is also on sale in South Africa and South East Asia. Interest has already been expressed in this and her other marine mysteries by film and television and overseas publishers.
Pauline lives on Hayling Island with her ex fire fighter husband, Bob, and enjoys thinking out the plots to her novels when she is sailing with her husband on their small yacht.
In For The Kill is published on 5 February 2007 by Fathom in paperback and retails in the UK at £6.99.
