"One girl's missing. One girl's dead. A stunning new novel from one of Britain's most original crime writers, Dead Pretty finds Detective Sergeant McAvoy and his boss Trish Pharaoh grappling with vigilante killers, unsolved murders, and several twists to keep them--and readers--guessing along the way. Nine months have passed since the disappearance of Hannah Kelly, and Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy is failing to convince himself that she is just a missing girl and not a murder victim. As he visits the spot where she was last seen, turning the case over in his head, McAvoy receives a phone call: another girl has been found dead. As McAvoy looks for connections between the two cases, his boss Trish Pharaoh is preoccupied with troubles of her own. Reuben Hollow--a man convicted of murder with the help of perjured testimony from the Humberside Police--has just been released from prison after a high-profile wrongful conviction suit, putting Pharaoh's reputation and life in danger. Gritty, dark, and endlessly entertaining, David Mark's Dead Pretty is a satisfying, thought-provoking addition to the Detective Sergeant McAvoy series"--
