The Firs

The Firs, Hull

Home of Piers Fordham, and the place in which he, whilst planning his retirement, reaps the rewards of his criminal actions.


“Those who find themselves longing for an HU postcode fight long and hard to get a place on this quiet, tree-lined road, where Porsches and Range Rovers sleep behind wrought-iron gates and workmen give well-tanned women the kind of gardens they can show off in one of the local glossy mags.”TAKING PITY

Features in:
Taking Pity:  A DS McAvoy novel by David Mark


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.’
