The Royal Hotel Murders by Pauline Rowson
Detective Inspector Andy Horton has a lot on his plate.
A celebrity receives threatening phone calls.
A nursing home resident assaulted.
A man found in a pit with several of his fingers severed.
Perry Jackson and his team are filming a new TV series about wrecks in the Solent and staying at the large and luxurious Royal Hotel on Portsmouth’s seafront.
Shortly after they’ve checked in, Jackson receives a series of threatening phone calls telling him to watch his back and you’ve been warned. Horton thinks it’s a publicity stunt to promote the new TV show.
Meanwhile at the Rest Haven Nursing Home, Mrs Kingsway says she’s been assaulted by an intruder, but there’s no sign of a break-in. The staff thinks she’s lost her marbles, but her son wants action from the police.
And now a man in diving gear is found dead in Oldham’s Wharf. Several of his fingers are missing.
The pressure is on. Detective Horton’s deep in a web of intrigue, deception and corruption that stretches back into the past. Can he find his way back and stop a killer?
