Praise for David Mark and Dead Pretty "Highly entertaining." --The Sunday Times "Truly exhilarating and inventive. Mark is a wonderfully descriptive writer and an exciting young talent" --Bestselling author Peter James "There is a good array of villains, and Mark is impressive in his sensitive portrayals of the relationships between the principal characters at work and home." --The Times "Darkly absorbing and told with real swagger, Dead Pretty is a heartfelt and sweeping thrill ride of a novel from one of crime fiction's most distinctive voices. DS Aector McAvoy might be a big guy but David Mark is undoubtedly set for very big things."--Chris Ewan, author of Safe House "More twists and turns than a corkscrew through the eyeball." --Bestselling author Val McDermid
