Book four in the Hull-based crime series, Taking Pity takes detectives McAvoy, Ray and Pharaoh on their most dangerous case to date.
DS Aector McAvoy's family is in hiding. He has lost his way.
His boss Trish Pharaoh gives him a distraction in the form of an old case. The Winn family was killed 40 years ago: were the police right about who pulled the trigger?
But McAvoy's enemies - the ruthless criminal organisation known as the Headhunters - are pitiless. They plan to take everything from those that stand in their way.
And his cold case is strangely linked with the fire that's about to rain down on Hull....
When McAvoy confronts the worst of killers and sinners, not everyone will escape unscathed.

The best yet in this series

The storyline is engaging and moves with a good pace. At times it can be a little far fetched to be believable even for a crime thriller but the plot in general is well thought out and sound. Background is quite important so read the others in the series first but this is definitely the best so far.

Good story - poor structure

Great idea, great narration but for me there were to many jumps between characters and plots that were poorly signposted.
