series of suspicious deaths have rocked Hull, a port city in England as old and mysterious as its bordering sea. They have captured the attention of Detective Sergeant aector McAvoy. He notices a pattern missed by his fellow officers, who would rather get a quick arrest than bother themselves with finding the true killer.

Compelled by his keen sense of justice, he decides to strike out alone-- but in the depths of the dark winter, it' s difficult to forget what happened the last time he found himself on the wrong side of a killer' s blade

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fast-moving and tightly plotted, with strong characterization and a likable protragonist, this is an extremely promising debut.” Guardian (London)
“A suspenseful whodunit…Readers will want to see more of the complicated McAvoy, who well serves a sophisticated and disturbing plot.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Mark shrewdly makes Aector an enigma for readers, too, slowly building the conflicted hero throughout the book…Mark’s years as a Hull journalist, his descriptions of a blighted city ‘on the bones of its arse,’ and winter weather that ranges from merely dismal to brutal burnish to an impressive debut.” Booklist (starred review)

Author Bio: David Mark

Author Bio: David Mark

David Mark spent more than fifteen years as a journalist, including seven years as a crime reporter with the Yorkshire Post—walking the Hull streets that would later become the setting for the Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy novels. His writing is heavily influenced by the court cases he covered: the defeatist and jaded police officers; the incompetent investigators; the inertia of the justice system and the sheer raw grief of those touched by savagery and tragedy. He lives in Lincolnshire, England.
