Aector McAvoy is back for more.
The lead character of David Mark’s latest novel, “Taking Pity,” is a Scotsman working as a police officer in Hull, England. His size and seriousness hide a vulnerable and tender core, which he usually feels comfortable showing only around his family.
In this installment, McAvoy is living apart from his wife and young son for safety reasons. As “City Lights” contributor Michele Ross explains in her review, McAvoy is given what’s supposed to be an easy cold case to confirm, but nothing is what it seems and betrayal is everywhere.
