Hollow’s Home

Hollow's Home, Skirlaugh

Home of Reuben Hollow and his daughter Delphine.


“It’s an old-fashioned, tumbledown affair with exposed brickwork and old timbers. A paradise, of sorts. Rusty trampoline and home-made swing in the front garden. Wildflowers scattered in the tall grass, thrown like handfuls of paints. Disordered headstones, mossed over and illegible, half sunk beneath nettles and cow-parsley, flaxweed and bluebells.”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.’
