A police procedural with a big heart, a sharp eye, a swagger in its step and grit under its fingernails. Anyone who isn't reading David Mark's books already: start now. -- Helen Giltrow, author of The Distance The exceptional McAvoy series just got better. DEAD PRETTY is a gripping thriller...proof that David Mark is up there with the best -- Mari Hannah, author of the Kate Daniels series Gripping story lines steeped in emotion and menace, with a larger than life character whom I love to reacquaint myself with. Always right on the Mark for me. -- Mel Sherratt Darkly absorbing and told with real swagger, DEAD PRETTY is a heartfelt and sweeping thrill ride of a novel from one of crime fiction's most distinctive voices. DS Aector McAvoy might be a big guy but David Mark is undoubtedly set for very big things. -- Chris Ewan, author of Safe House Wry insights into the human condition and lyrical descriptions of the East Yorkshire landscape * Irish Independent * In terms of food analogies, some books are bland or subtly flavoured, while others are like a fiery curry. David Mark's DS McAvoy books are unarguably in the latter category * Independent * The McAvoy series pulls off the double whammy of cracking characters and cunning plots. The big detective Aector McAvoy is so real and so loveable you want to have a pint with him, and the legendary Trish Pharaoh proves that a man can create an utterly compelling female character -- Anya Lipska There is a good array of villains, and Mark is impressive in his sensitive portrayals of the relationships between the principal characters at work and home. * The Times * David Mark takes you to the darkest edges of Hull and Back, but be prepared for a late night, as Dead Pretty will make you see dawn -- Martina Cole Mark's rich, distinctive prose style and damaged characters compel you to keep reading... shaping up to be an essential crime series * Crime Scene Magazine * Breathtaking. Mark writes bad beautifully -- Peter May Compelling and harrowing * Daily Express * Truly exhilarating and inventive. Mark is a wonderfully descriptive writer and an exciting young talent. -- Peter James Dark, compelling crime writing of the highest order -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail * More twists and turns than a corkscrew through the eyeball -- Val McDermid Highly entertaining * The Sunday Times *
