What Ian Rankin is the Edinburgh, David Mark is to Hull, the northern England port as old and mysterious as its bordering sea. There, a series of suspicious deaths have captures the attention of Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy, whose keep intelligence leads him to notice a pattern missed by others: All of the victims were at one time the sole survivors of tragedies large and small. As McAvoy strives to connect the cases to a single culprit, he is continually torn between his duties and his aching desire to spend more time with his wife and child - both of whom he adores. In McAvoy, Mark as created an unforgettable hero: a family guy obsessed with being a decent cop, a physically imposing man far more comfortable exploring databases than being gung-ho with his muscle.

Wow! What a great story. Aector McAvoy has joined James Lee Burke's Robicheaux as my two favorite detectives. McAvoy is not a rich playboy with martial arts skills. He has self-doubts about his place among his colleagues. Yet he is moved by his sense of true north as he faces a series of suspicious and bewildering deaths. The writing is outstanding as the story unfolds to an exciting conclusion. I also liked how deeply in love he is with his wife. Pharao, his female boss, is an interesting character.
