With the paperback and Kindle versions of Footsteps on the Shore being published in August and September respectively I thought I'd post some photographs of the area where this DI Andy Horton novel is set. I posted some in January when the hardcover was published but here are more pictures taken from Andy Horton Marine Mystery country.

Footsteps on the Shore, number six in the Horton series, is set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England. This novel is set in Portsmouth, around the historic shores of the Roman Fort of Portchester Castle, Port Solent Marina, which in the Horton novels is called Horsea Marina, and on the Hayling Island Coastal Path.

Friday the thirteenth begins badly for DI Andy Horton when he wakes to find his Harley has been vandalized and his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, has returned early from her secondment to HQ. Then, convicted murderer, Luke Felton, released on licence, is reported missing and a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get a grip on either case, he’s called to a house where a woman he’d only met the day before has been brutally murdered. Is missing Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is it his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective …

I'm looking forward to seeing the paperback versions, and if the Kindle and e book version of Foosteps on the Shore is as popular as the other DI Horton crime novels and thrillers , then I'll be tickled pink! (So too, hopefully, will my publisher!)
