Publisher's Summary

When the head teacher of a struggling school is found brutally murdered in Langstone Harbour, DI Andy Horton is appointed to lead the investigation. But Superintendent Uckfield has only given Horton a week to find the killer - after that he will be shunted off the case. A note was found on the victim, along with a wad of money wrapped up in a five-pound note and smothered with honey. Is there a clue to be found in The Owl and the Pussycat rhyme? As he delves deeper into the case, the clock ticks, and Horton is soon forced to make a decision that will put his life on the line...

Deadly Waters by Pauline Rowson

Very well written. So many twists and turns, but pulled together nicely in the end. A vulnerable, thoughtful inspector. We thoroughly enjoyed this story and had to keep listening to the end!

Very disappointing

Sorry to disagree with the other reviewer. It was very difficult to engage with any of the characters as they lacked depth and were totally clique. The plot had so many holes in it, and the course of the investigation leaped from one ridiculous theory to another despite suspects having alibis, and no evidence (evidence seemed to be secondary to wild speculation). Police procedures(or lack of)were laughable. It was decided that the first victim was punched in the face by a right handed person, and struck on the head by a left handed person as the blow was on the other side as this fitted into the sketchy plot. It didn't seem to occure to the author that the victim could have been facing the other way! The worst crime book I have ever heard, I only stuck it out to the end for amusement sake it was so bad.
