CRIME novel readers in China are about to get a taste of Portsmouth.
Hayling Island author Pauline Rowson’s mystery crime series featuring DI Andy Horton is to be published in the far east.
The translation rights have been sold to Chinese Publisher, Nanhai.
The Solent, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight provide the background to the popular novels.
Pauline said: ‘I’m delighted with this news. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Chinese editions and finding out what people in China make of my rugged DI Andy Horton.’
