Alexandra Dock, Hull

McAvoy meets with Mahon here and learns the truth about the scarred enforcer’s involvement in the massacre of the Winn family.


“McAvoy stares at a miserable horizon; a pulp of smoke and damp charcoal. One of the monstrous super-ferries is a little way to his left; a toppled office block of whites and blues against the grey of dock and sky.”TAKING PITY

They have taken DS Aector McAvoy’s family.

They have taken DCI Colin Ray’s foundation.

They have taken DS Trish Pharaoh’s fight.

Now the ruthless criminal network that has tightened its stranglehold on Hull intends to take everything that remains from those who dare to stand in its way.

Taking Pity is a police procedural thriller that pulls no punches. It is the story of three officers who can take no more, and a merciless nemesis that takes no chances, no prisoners and no pity.

‘Excellent . . . Mark weaves a complicated web of deception, betrayal, and violence as the action builds to a stunning conclusion.’
