Freeman Street Pub

Freeman Street Pub, Hull

This is the location of the attack on Angela Martindale, interrupted by the arrival of McAvoy and Tremberg.


“It’s a proper pub, this. One of the last boozers on this busy shopping street on the outskirts of Grimsby town centre not to have been bought out by one of the chains. There are only half a dozen punters in today, and none are drinking together.”DARK WINTER

Dark Winter:  A DS McAvoy novel by David Mark


Hull, East Yorkshire. Two weeks before Christmas an elderly man – the only survivor of a fishing trawler tragedy 40 years before – is found murdered at sea.

In a church, a young girl who is the last surviving member of a family slaughtered during the conflict in Sierra Leone, is hacked to death with a machete.

Someone is killing sole survivors in the manner they had escaped death. And it falls to Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy of Humberside CID to find out who.

‘An exceptional debut from an exciting new talent. David Mark is an original and captivating new voice.’
