4.0 out of 5 stars Grim, brooding and bleak, 27 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Sorrow Bound: The 3rd DS McAvoy Novel (Ds Aector Mcavoy) (Kindle Edition)
David Mark’s police series set in a grim and gritty Hull has become a must-read for me. In this third outing for Aector McAvoy, the over-arching story of the ongoing struggle against drug-lords continues while, in the foreground, Aector is pursuing a serial-killer with a strangely warped motive.

This is markedly more brutal and violent than the other two books, but this is offset by the central character of Aector himself and his almost religious love for his wife and family. Other characters are also becoming firm favourites: especially Trish Pharaoh with her overt sexuality and rough wit which conceals tragedy in her domestic life. And it’s this rounding of characters which makes this series so gripping.

Hull is becoming another character in its own right, and these books are shot through with a brooding, bleak and melancholy atmosphere. This is clever crime writing with a tangible sense of moral purpose – recommended.

I live in Hull and don't recognise it from his books.
