Fire of Lies

Fire of Lies

A gripping new short story in the DS McAvoy series by David Mark, bestselling author of the Richard & Judy pick DARK WINTER.

Eight months ago, there was a body in the barrel. Now there’s just a mess.

DS Aector McAvoy’s latest case is proving a hard one to crack.

Back in November, Paul Rouse was shot, welded into a beer barrel and sent floating down the Humber.

The barrel’s been traced to riverside pub The Trawl. It’s the kind of place where the locals have plenty of secrets to keep. None of them are talking.

To anyone else, the case would be a dead end.

But McAvoy always finds a way…

Fire of Lies introduces gentle giant McAvoy, his fierce boss Trish, and characters you’d only ever meet in a David Mark novel. It’s Hullishly good.

Reviews

In terms of food analogies, some books are bland or subtly flavoured, while others are like a fiery curry. David Mark's DS McAvoy books are unarguably in the latter category
Independent
The McAvoy series pulls off the double whammy of cracking characters and cunning plots. The big detective Aector McAvoy is so real and so loveable you want to have a pint with him, and the legendary Trish Pharaoh proves that a man can create an utterly compelling female character
Anya Lipska
Gripping story lines steeped in emotion and menace, with a larger than life character whom I love to reacquaint myself with. Always right on the Mark for me.
