Review:

'The Dark Winter is an exceptional debut from an exciting new talent. David Mark is an original and captivating new voice' Val McDermid.

'Fast-moving and tightly plotted, with strong characterisation and a likeable protagonist, this is an extremely promising debut' Guardian.

'[David Mark] brings alive the remoteness of Hull from the rest of Yorkshire and the financial decay of the area. Highly recommended. I look forward to the next book' Euro Crime.

'The Dark Winter makes a fair fist of the police procedural genre, and I expect to see more of Aector in the not too distant future' Crime Time.

'The essence of David Mark's The Dark Winter is intriguing' The Times.

'exciting, and really dark, with a lot of strong emotions from love to hatred' I Will Read Books.

'spoonfuls of lyrical description' The Wharf. 'Carefully plotted ... an imaginative, colourful supporting cast ... an engaging page-turner' Manchester Evening News. 'Arriving with an encomium from no less than Val McDermid, this is a reminder that British crime fiction is in a particularly healthy state at the moment' Good Book Guide.

'David Mark sets out his stall with this page-turning debut' TimeOut. 'an unusual and accomplished debut with tight plotting and intelligent writing' Daily Mail. 'Carefully plotted, with an overtly filmic style, The Dark Winter tackles the concept of mercy, while introducing a strong central character' Fife Leader.

'one of the most accomplished debut novels I have read recently ... David Mark has the potential to be one of the stars of British crime writing' Shots.

From the Back Cover:

McAvoy lets his mind drift back to the chaos and bloodshed in the square. To that moment when the masked man appeared from the doorway of the church and looked into his eyes. 'Is there anything distinctive, Sarge?' asks Nielsen. 'Yes', he says, with the sudden sense that memory is important. 'There were tears in his eyes.' DS Aector McAvoy is a man with a troubled past. His unwavering belief in justice has made him an outsider in the police force he serves. When three seemingly unconnected people are brutally murdered in the weeks before Christmas, the police must work quickly to stop more deaths. It is only McAvoy who can see the connection between the victims. A killer is playing God - and McAvoy must find a way to stop the deadly game.
