Description

DS Aector McAvoy investigates his darkest, most brutal case yet

The call comes in before DS Aector McAvoy has had time for breakfast. The news is bad: A body. Found in the woods out at Brantingham.

The reality is even worse.

The young man's mutilated corpse lies tangled in the roots of a newly fallen tree, two silver Roman coins nailed through his sightless eyes. Who would torture their victim in such a brutal manner - and why?

DS McAvoy makes the victim a promise: I will find answers. You will know justice. But justice always comes at a cost, and this time it may be McAvoy's own family who pay the price.

David Mark brings Hull to dark, brutal life in this gripping novel in the critically acclaimed DS McAvoy series - a perfect pick for fans of Denise Mina, Val McDermid and Peter Robinson.

This book is pretty rough. Some gruesome descriptions in novels I read from time to time usually don’t bother me, but some of the scenes in this book really got to me.

DS Aector McCoy rushes to the scene of a recently discovered body. A young man has been brutally murdered abs buried under a tree. If not for the wild storm the night before, he many never have been found.

The pathologist states that he has been there for some years. Before long, he is identified. He was a promising archeology student at the local college.

There are some flashbacks in the book that give the reader some background on both the victim and the possible suspects in the case.

Aector, his boss Trish and the rest of the team move quickly on the case. They identify several suspects. Some seem also to be missing. They soon discover a connection between missing archeological artifacts and the black market through which they are sold.

They also identify a cult-like movement that worships the old Roman gods and their ways of worship.

How is this all connected? Is it connected?

When Aector’s family comes into danger, he naturally goes berserk. Trish takes command, for Aector has been injured.
The identity of the murderer comes as no surprise, but the cover up is sadly disappointing for its disillusionment.
I liked Aector very much. I will look into more of his adventures. His boss Trish impressed me less. The writing and plotting are good and the transitions are smooth. The book would have been a five star with a little less gore.
I want to thank NetGalley and Severn House for forwarding to me a copy of this good book for me to read, enjoy and review. The opinions expressed here are solely my own.

Thank you NetGalley and Seven House for the eARC.
DS Aector McAvoy has a call to a most gruesome murder: the body of a man buried in the tangled roots of a tree after a stormy night. The body is in terrible shape, flayed and broken, two old Roman coins nailed into his eyes. The body has been there for some years and eventually they also find the bones of newborn babies in the spot.
This has to be the creepiest McAvoy in the series, there are scenes that I had a hard time with; the cruelty to humans and animals is brutal, which is why I couldn't give it 5 stars. I really like Aector, he's a good man with a deep love for his family and a respect for the dead that makes him put his heart and soul into his job. His boss, Trish Pharaoh, is a great character and the two of them have each other's backs all the way, which I really love. How he can stay in his job is beyond me; why not take your wife and kids and go for a more peaceful life? I'm dying for the next in the series, maybe I'll have an answer to my question?!

In the thirteenth episode of what is a genuinely impressive series, David Mark's Hull copper Aector McAvoy returns, along with the established cast - his wife Roisin and their two children, and his boss, Detective Superintendent Trish Pharoah. McAvoy is, as the name suggests, a Scottish exile, and he is built like the proverbial brick you-know-what. Despite his forbidding appearance, McAvoy is a peaceable and studious man, shy with other people, but perceptive and with an attention to detail that matches his formidable appearance.

The book begins with a flashback to an attempt by young men to carry out what seems to be a robbery in an isolated rural property. It ends in horrific violence, matched only by the destructive storm that rages over the heads of the ill-advised and ill-prepared group. Cut to the present day, and another storm has lashed Humberside, bringing down power lines, flooding homes, and uprooting trees. One such tree, an ancient ash, reveals something truly awful - a human body, mostly decayed, entwined within its roots in a macabre embrace.

McAvoy is called to the scene, and it doesn't take too much evidence - in this case a pair of fashionable trainers - for McAvoy to deduce that this body has been put into the ground in living memory. What is astonishing, however, is that two Roman coins have been nailed into the victim's eyes. The gentle policeman can only hope and pray that this act was not done while the victim was still alive. To make matters more disturbing, the fragile bones of two babies are also found.


The body is soon identified as that of a university student who went missing in the 1990s, but what on earth was he doing in this remote spot, and who had cause to kill and maim him in such a fashion? The owners of the adjacent property are interviewed, but add nothing to the investigation. Pharoah and McAvoy discover that the case may be linked to the trade in ancient artifacts discovered by illegal metal detectorists - nighthawks - and there is disturbing evidence that a notorious Manchester gangster - convicted of horrific torture just a few years earlier - may be involved on the fringes of the case.

David Mark writes with a sometimes frightening intensity as dark events swirl around Aector McAvoy. The big man, gentle and hesitant though he may seem, is, however, like a rock. He is one of the most original creations in a very crowded field of fictional British coppers, and his capacity to bear pain for others - particularly in this episode his son Fin and Trish Pharoah - is movingly described. Mark's work may - at first glance - seem miles away from the Factory novels of that Noir genius Derek Raymond, but McAvoy shares the same compassion, the same sworn vow to find justice for the slain, and the same awareness of suffering shown by the nameless sergeant in masterpieces like I Was Dora Suarez.

The terrifying climax to Blind Justice is also straight out of the Derek Raymond playbook and is not for the squeamish, but vivid and visceral. Where David Mark does differ from his illustrious predecessor is that he allows McAvoy the redemption and respite denied to Raymond's sergeant with his dead child and mad wife, and it comes in the shape of his intriguing part-gypsy wife and their children.


If I read a better book all year, be sure that I will let you know. Blind Justice is published by Severn House and will be out on 31st March.

David Mark is a fabulous author and his lead character, Aector McAvoy is a huge, brilliant cop.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Severn House Publishers for an advance copy of Blind Justice, the tenth novel to feature Acting DI Aector McAvoy of Hull Police.

When an ash tree topples in a storm a body is found in the roots. It has been there for a few years but it’s still obvious that it has been mutilated and has two silver coins nailed into the eyes. Aector and his boss, Superintendent Trish Pharaoh, are determined to bring the victim justice, but will the cost be too high when Aector and his family come under threat?

I thoroughly enjoyed Blind Justice, which is a gory, exciting read with a compelling story to tell. The author doesn’t make much effort to hide the perpetrator’s identity with flashbacks to prior events and a few rather obvious hints, but the novel is more about the hunt to uncover the truth and tell the story behind what the police discover.

Basically the novel is about madness and greed, which are fairly commonplace motives in crime fiction, so it’s about the way it’s told and the author does a sterling job. It starts with an unidentified body, after a scene setting prologue, and moves on from there offering tidbits to whet the appetite and scenes from the other side that somewhat explain, the motive but also whet the appetite further. It’s not for the faint hearted as there is a high level of stomach churning cruelty in certain scenes, but, if the reader can get past that, it makes sense and adds to the horror of what Aector and Trish are dealing with. The plot itself is well paced with, apart from the horror, a certain amount of tension, excitement and humour.

Trish Pharaoh makes me laugh. She has all the best lines and a wicked sense of humour. I’m never sure how much of her act is performative and how much is really her. Doesn’t really matter as she’s entertaining. Aector McAvoy is her straight man, who is the butt of many of her jokes and barbs and doesn’t seem to mind. He’s a big, self conscious, unconfident man, but he’s steadfast in his commitment to justice and the wellbeing of his family.

There is a sense of change in the air by the end of this novel. Good or bad I don’t know, simply something has shifted.

Blind Justice is a good read that I have no hesitation in recommending.

There's a certain comfort about coming back to familiar characters in a long running series. For most authors that is; with David Mark it's a mixture of emotions. You know that you're going to read another superlative crime thriller featuring his wonderful and warm human characters, you just don't know what horrors the author is going to put them through this time. As book 10 in his DS McAvoy series, you probably know that it's likely to be a case that no-one is going to get an easy ride or come out unmarked. Un-David Marked. Sometimes I'm not sure even the criminals deserve what they get in his books...

Take for example the unfortunate individual at the start of Blind Justice. We don't know exactly what has gone wrong, just that he and a friend were attempting a house robbery, one that should have been a doddle, but he now finds himself lying in mud in the dark, while his friend is screaming in agony. As he feels half his leg being ripped off by a bear trap, the only mercy we have is that the author ends this gruesome prologue before things get worse at the hands of someone mumbling a presumably threatening Latin phrase in his ear.

He's going to be in even worse shape by the time that DS McAvoy of Humberside Police Serious and Organised Unit is called in 25 years later. The victim's body has been discovered ripped in half when it is uncovered after a oak tree is toppled during a storm in the Brantingham Woods near Brough. Even though the man's wallet is found and his identity quickly established along with his disappearance from a student flat in 1996, there is nothing else that is going to be simple about this murder case. There's a ritualistic aspect to the killing, possibly occult, although there's an archaeological angle to be explored with the coins nailed into the eyes that suggest a connection to the Roman origins of the East Yorkshire town.

McAvoy and his boss Trish Pharaoh have a fair idea that the somewhat eccentric family in the land adjacent to the site of the uncovered body are involved, but how this relates to the victim, his known dubious associates and the other strange discoveries in the woods is a more complicated game to unravel. It doesn't help that this time neither Trish nor McAvoy seem to be on top of their game. Hey, it happens to us all, and David Mark is always realistic dealing with characters having real-world concerns - but it's a little more worrying when there is clearly a lot at stake here. McAvoy is still dealing with his son Fin being subjected to the terror of his last case (Past Life), but when his wife Roisin is also threatened here, it's going to be a step too far.

As gruesome as what has come before, we have reason then to expect much worse in Blind Justice. We know that McAvoy is a gentle soul at heart, but with a firm belief in justice and huge devotion to his family. The challenge here is whether he can keep his anger sufficiently in check to deal with some very dangerous individuals in a way that will ensure the safety of innocents. That is a greater concern than his own safety, as we have seen in the past and in the scars that he bears from past cases, and you can be sure that there are likely to be a few more added here. It's never dull in Hull.

There's perhaps not a great deal that is new here, even though the areas delved into - archaeology, historical artefacts, ancient practices - are far removed from common crime writing. A little too far removed maybe, into the realm of off-the-scale bonkers, but Mark's ability to work with his regular cast remains a joy and it's their deep humanity, love and sense of humour that stands out against the horror depicted elsewhere. For regular David Mark readers used to this and the expansion of his range in his other standalone works of fiction and memoir, this DS McAvoy case could feel like it has fewer surprises, but by any other standard the writing and fearless plunge into the extremes of good and evil in Blind Justice remain far above the average crime thriller.

I wish to thank NetGalley and Severn Press for the Blind Justice ARC in return for an honest review. I was delighted to receive it since David Mark has become one of my favourite thriller writers. This is the 10th book in the DS Aector McAvoy police series, and he has several terrific stand-alones as well.

McAvoy is a large, imposing man. He is studious, intelligent and respects police rules. Despite a shy and gentle demeanour, and carries many scars and injuries from past cases. He is relentless in pursuing justice for victims and is a devoted loving family man. Unlike many fictional detectives, he does not drown his sorrows in alcohol, nor is he emotionally suffering from a harsh background or a family break-up.
McAvoy's boss is the extroverted, rough-edged Trish Pharoah. Although much different in their personalities, they hold each other in high regard, always protective of one another.

This is McAvoy's most brutal and macabre case. It involves descriptions of acts that may disturb some readers, including cruelty to humans and animals. The story moves at an intense, relentless pace with some gruesome descriptions. A mutilated corpse is found tangled in the roots of a fallen tree after a storm. The body has been flayed, broken, and with two ancient Roman coins nailed through his eyes. To make the scene even more ghastly, the bones of small babies are scattered in view.

Investigations reveal the victim was a brilliant archaeology student who shared a flat nearby with a group of other students. He disappeared in 1996. A saddened and compassionate McAvoy vows to find the perpetrator of this unspeakable crime and bring him to justice.

McAvoy and his team find them entangled in a case that is emotionally devastating. Their investigation included interviewing people living near the crime scene, and some are weird or scary. They get information about the university students who shared a flat with the young victim. The trail leads them to stolen antiquities and artifacts that were bound for the black market, and to a cult-like movement that worshipped Roman gods, and performed depraved rituals.

The pace becomes more frantic when McAvoy's beloved wife is captured. It is evident that McAvoy will not rescue his wife or solve the case without enduring more injuries and scars in a gripping, action-packed ending.

When the case is solved, the detectives, are left emotionally drained and disillusioned. They have witnessed too much evil and horror. Trish is thinking of retiring and McAvoy wants to move to a quiet place in the country with his family, and keep them safe. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see their outcome.

I recommend this to readers who like compelling police procedurals with well-developed characters, nasty, deranged villains, and a detective who is described as a good and compassionate man. Be aware that there are some stomach-turning descriptions.

Know that there are some gruesome scenes in this twisty procedural set in Hull, DS Aector McAvoy and his boss DS Trish Pharaoh find themselves digging through the depths of humanity when the body of a student who was maimed and tortured before he was killed is found in a tangle of tree roots. Aector's family, especially his wife Roisin, a Traveller, is key to this tale and provide more than a bit of the tension. I've only read a couple of the earlier books- this was fine as a more or less standalone. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. A good read.

Another great read in the DS Mc Avoy series, filled with suspense and drama. The characters are well developed, the writing is the usual high standard from the author and the plot is filled with intensity. I would highly recommend this series of books, it's one of my favourites and never disappoints. What more is there to say? Thanks to Net Galley for my ARC.

As a huge fan of these books, I’ve read all of the series and they are all usually very good. This time I would go as far as saying it’s possibly one of the very best.

The affable yet serious DS Aector McAvoy is a wonderful creation, ably backed up by his loving fiery Roision and boss Trish Pharoah.

This time around a story steeped in myth and macabre plays out when the bones of a man missing long ago surface deep in the forest.

As ever Aector becomes emotionally involved and David Mark writes his main protagonist in chief in a brilliant way.

David Mark has an astoundingly good writing style, it’s really quite different, it’s intelligent without being over bearing and his stories are clever and well crafted and his characters even more so.

This is probably the best crime read I’ve read so far this year and I hope that David Mark has more left in the tank for Aector

It's not often that I have to think so long about what to share with you, Goodreads friends, after finishing a book.
I'm not even sure if I'm ready yet. Although it would be rather easy to retell parts of the story, you know that I don't like that - I don't even read most reviews before I start reading a book. It's often difficult to go into describing how you feel about about without giving away crucial details or even spoilers. At least, for me it is.
My first thoughts after closing the book (well, the Kindle app, but I immediately bought the paperback) were rather mixed up. This time, Aector needs to go back very far, to a time where people believed in different gods, not necessarily much different from the ones modern people believe in... and although this book isn't about religion as such, the roots of the horrible events start there. Without Aector's extensive knowledge of ancients texts, customs and traditions this whole sad story would not have been solved. And even when Aector's family gets threatened, his children suffer and his best friend Trish Pharaoh, he doesn't stop.
Yes, it's a gruesome book in places. But it's also a sad story, about people who mistakenly believe they are better than others, and young people who make mistakes.
I wouldn't recommend to start reading this series with this 13th one, because it will be much harder to understand all that's happening with Aector, Roisin and Trish, and how it affects them.
Expertly written as always, this book makes for something really special.

Thanks to Netgalley and Severn House for this review copy.

Wow - that prologue is one of the creepiest, most atmospheric and chilling I've read in a long time and it certainly did the job and sucked me right inot the rest of the book.
Of course Aector McAvoy , his team and family are an equally appealing draw.
It's been a while since I read a McAvot book, but was well able to getback iot the groove and throughly enjoyed catching up with him and the gang. There were a few pieces of back story which hinted at previous novels - so now I'm off to catch up on the ones I've missed too.
With part of the story set in Bradford, my home town, I was gripped and it was nice to see a non Bradfordian breath some life inot the city and I particularly realted to it becase the timeline of the back story acts out only a few years after I first moved to Bradford.
I always find it fascinating when a cold case is investigated and the link to Roman ruins made this a fascinating read, but also an educational one.
The varying time line for the backstory kept me on my toes as I worked out exactly when each scene was set.
Well plotted and enjoyable

3.5 stars rounded up for a very dark and gritty mystery. This book opens with the discovery of a body buried in the the roots of a tree upended by a storm. The police are called in. Acting Detective Inspector Aector McAvoy and his team realize that the person was murdered in a horrific manner. He was tortured and buried alive. McAvoy and his boss, Trish Pharaoh, now Acting Detective Superintendent, are led into a world of sadism, masochism and other horrors.
They link this murder to others. They do solve them, but at a cost. I have previously read 7 books in this series, mostly in order and I recommend reading them in order. However, this one was a little too dark for me. There are descriptions of torture that would turn your stomach and are only fit for someone who can skim past it or doesn't mind it. Definitely not a cozy mystery.
The dialogue between Trish and Aector and between Aector and his wife Roisin does provide some humor. I read this book in 3 days.
Two quotes:
Conversation between Aector and his son, Fin, about Aector's daughter, Lilah: "Fin nods. 'I heard Lilah shouting at it,' he smiles. 'Telling the wind that if it didn't shut up she was going to kick its head in."
Roisin: "Out of an innate desire to irritate authority, Roisin has dressed in a fashion that is part Traveller, part table dancer. She's wearing fur lined boots, a short denim skirt and a clingy leopard print top with vents up the side."

This is the eleventh book by he author featuring detective sergeant Aector McAvoy and his boss detective superintendent Trish Pharaoh.
Aector is acting detective inspector, but as usual is very embarrassed about it. His son Finn is still having nightmares about when he was abducted. His wife Roisin is still very much a traveller's daughter, and their daughter Lilah is following in her mother's footsteps.
There has been a violent storm which uprooted a tree in the North Ferriby area of Hull East Yorkshire. In the roots of the tree is the rotting corpse of a man. He has had coins hammered into his eyes and his body is in two parts. They find a walet identifying him as a missing Bradford university student, reported missing in 1998.
There are only three houses nearby. One belongs to an elderly couple, one to a lady in her late 50s and one to a professor. There is also an archaelogy dig nearby.
This is very much a gothic novel. Sinister and creepy by turns. It feels as if it could be the last in this series? Trish is feeling old and the top brass would like to replace her. Aector is wondering if he and his family would be better living in their scottish croft. Roisin can't wait for her husband to leave the police force.
As usual plenty of violence, an abduction and plenty of leads. A good story well told. Recommended.

This isin't a book for faint of heart as some scenes are very hard to read and brutal. It's also a hell of gripping, gritty, and twisty story that kept hooked even when I found hard to read.
Excellent storytelling and plot development, a solid mystery.
Highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine

EXCERPT: Headlights, just beyond the fence. The car, back where they had left it. His companions. His friends. Safety, warmth. He lets out a ragged breath, fixing his gaze upon the big yellow eyes of the little Fiesta, illuminating the billions of raindrops that tumble from the demented sky.

Don't stop. Keep going. You're nearly there. Don't say a word. Say he abandoned you. Say he did a runner. Say anything. But don't let them know. Don't let them know what you saw, or heard, or smelled. Don't . . .

He doesn't even feel the teeth of the metal trap crunch shut around his leg. Has taken two desperate steps towards sanctuary before he looks down and sees the gruesome steel contraption chewing into the bone of his shin. Tumbles down with such force that the tibia rips in two - spears of bloody whiteness skewering the tattered meat beneath his knee.

The pain, when it comes, is beyond endurance. It is as if red-hot knives and shards of glass were being pushed directly into the marrow beneath his shattered bones. He opens his mouth to scream and feels mud and earth spill onto his tongue, down his throat, flooding his gullet. Tries to turn the right way up, to focus himself upon the lights of the car; the nearness of escape.

A shadow falls across him. An outline of rippling silk. Bare feet. Exposed shins. Robe flapping and billowing around defined well-muscled flesh.

I'm sorry. So sorry . . .

ABOUT 'BLIND JUSTICE': The call comes in before DS Aector McAvoy has had time for breakfast. The news is bad: A body. Found in the woods out at Brantingham.

The reality is even worse.

The young man's mutilated corpse lies tangled in the roots of a newly fallen tree, two silver Roman coins nailed through his sightless eyes. Who would torture their victim in such a brutal manner - and why?

DS McAvoy makes the victim a promise: I will find answers. You will know justice. But justice always comes at a cost, and this time it may be McAvoy's own family who pay the price.

MY THOUGHTS: Aector is off investigating a murder committed in a different century, leaving his home and family to probe the death of an unmourned man who, it seems, was little missed. He has always involved his wife in his work - sometimes more than he ever intended to. Roisin has a keen, insightful mind and often sees things from a different perspective. He is reluctant to admit it, but he benefits from the fact that his wife has a fine criminal cognizance.

His boss, DS Trish Pharaoh, is his closest friend. She knows him and his family better than anyone. But sometimes he'd like her to respect protocol and boundaries. I love the fact that the two are friends and very protective of one another. It makes a change from most novels in this genre where these two characters would be at loggerheads all the time.

Roisin and Trish have an intensely complex relationship: admiring and loathing one another in equal measure as they thread themselves in and out of one another's lives and steer Aector in whatever direction best suits their needs. Aector loves them both, albeit in markedly different ways.

These three are a formidable team, each ready to lay their life on the line for the others.

David Mark is passionate about his characters, even down to Aector and Roisin's children, and the criminal elements in his stories. This shines through in his writing. Damn it! I am passionate about his characters. Particularly Aector and the enchanting Roisin and their little family, and the hard-drinking, chain-smoking Trish.

You wouldn't think that the discovery of a body that has been in the ground for more than twenty years could possibly set off such a dark and macabre chain of events, but it does. Mark plots with the same intense passion he creates his characters.

There are some strange and scary characters in this book. Characters that seem to live in a different world to the rest of us. A world inhabited by gods and demons, sacrifice and ritual. Aector's knowledge of the classics proves useful here.

I always clear my schedule when I start a book in this series because I can think of nothing but Aector, Roisin, Trish and whatever current case they may be working. I become fully immersed in the story, and live it with the characters as I read the words. Such is the quality of David Mark's writing.

Although this ends gently, there is change in the air and I am on tenterhooks, waiting for the next book in this superb series.

THE AUTHOR: David spent more than 15 years as a journalist, including seven years as a crime reporter with The Yorkshire Post – walking the Hull streets that would later become the setting for the internationally bestselling Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy novels.

His writing is heavily influenced by the court cases he covered: the defeatist and jaded police officers; the inertia of the justice system and the sheer raw grief of those touched by savagery and tragedy.
