“This is a place of empty houses and overgrown fields, roped-off play areas and smashed phone boxes. Soggy stems and dead petals flutter in cellophane coffins on lampposts and buckled barriers. Old twists of police tape garland garden fences.”DEAD PRETTY

Features in:


Hannah Kelly has been missing for nine months.

Ava Delaney has been dead for five days.

DS Aector McAvoy won’t let either of them go until justice can be done. But some people have their own ideas of what justice means . . .

Dead Pretty takes readers deep into a crime investigation, as McAvoy struggles with a case that’s leading nowhere, and the thorny issues of what right and wrong means when it comes to taking lives and saving them.

‘Breathtaking. Mark writes badness beautifully.’
