The second instalment in the acclaimed Hull-based DS Aector McAvoy series and the follow up to the Sunday Times best-selling Dark Winter.

Their sins will seal their fate.

Suzie Devlin lived for pleasure - until her best friend Simon was murdered. Now Suzie seems to be in the killer's sights....

Who wants her dead? And why? She's done nothing wrong...except, perhaps, get involved with the wrong person.

DS Aector McAvoy has been a marked man all his life. He knows how one misstep can put you in harm's way. He's determined to protect Suzie, even if it means inviting danger to come to him....

In a dark world of sin and retribution, he will stand against a killer to save a life.

What the Critics Say

"Richly satisfying and told with remarkable flair, it confirms Mark as one of the darkest of the new faces in British crime writing, and not one to miss" (Daily Mail)

    "Very easy and enjoyable"

    The perfect story to while away time. Absorbing, but not taxing. Hours flew without me noticing. This is the second of Mark's books I've had on audible. I continue to enjoy the characters- particularly with Longworth as the narrator.

    "I love this series"

    I find myself fascinated by the characters in these books. McAvoy is a slightly confusing jumble of intense determination and incongruous shyness. His relationship with his boss is interesting and unusual with an undercurrent of something sexual.
    The plot kept me guessing and a great twist at the end.
    The narrator does a really good job of bringing the characters to life , I enjoyed listening to his variation of tones and accents.
    I am about to download the third book !

    "Better than the first book"

    I would still like a little more pace, but overall I am enjoying this series. The characters are very good and the storylines mesh well.
    As remarked on by another reviewer, PLEASE get the pronunciation right! How can Wincolmlee be said correctly, but not Anlaby? It's An-lu-bee, not An-lay-bee. It got very irritating.
    Well rounded characters, unusual plot lines and a tidy ending. Not enough to set my world on fire, but still enjoyable.
    One last thing that's annoyed me about the narration - though overall, it is good, with very good accents - quite a few times there is practically no pause between paragraphs and you jump from one scene/storyline to the next without pause. If you're not paying attention, it can be a little confusing!

    "Narrator needs to hear a Hull accent and to check place names"

    Great story that held my attention throughout and well narrated, for the most part, but oh I wish the narrator had been told that Anlaby has a short a in the middle (as in cat) not a long one ( as in baby).
