The New York Timeshails David Mark's work as in the honorable tradition of Joseph Wambaugh and Ed McBain. ORIGINAL SKIN is the second installment of the internationally acclaimed Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy series.

When swinger Simon Appleyard is found strung-up and naked in his apartment, the authorities are only too happy to chalk it up to suicide. After all, a new gang has taken over the local drug trade, and Detective Superintendant Trish Pharaohs Serious and Organized Crime Unit is run ragged. A murder investigation is the last thing they need.

But more bodies begin to surface, and all are somehow connected to the underground erotic scene. Although Detective Sargeant Aector McAvoy would be perfectly content to stay home with his wife and their newborn baby, he begins to suspect that murder is just the beginning. As his investigation brings him uncomfortably close to the local political elite, McAvoy realizes he is hunting a sadistic killer with a lust that wont be satisfied until the River Humber runs red.

David Marks latest Detective Sergeant McAvoy novel, CRUEL MERCY, is on-sale February 2017.
