DS Aector McAvoy is a policeman with scars to his body and career.

Each is marked in their own way. And soon each will be branded by the same sinister foe. Original Skin is a crime novel that leaves a permanent impression.

Half serial killer thriller, half gritty police procedural, it examines the imprints that our darkest sins leave upon us, and just how far we will go to keep them covered.

Four marked souls. Life is never quiet with Simon Appleyard and Suzie Devlin around. Fun-loving friends - their body markings as colourful as their sexuality - the pair's lust for life is matched only by their hunger for taboo pleasures. Life is never quiet for Councillor Peter Tressider. A successful local businessman, Conservative politician, and Chairman of the Humberside Police Authority, he is a man on the up, and a magnet for the press. Life is currently anything but quiet for DS Aector McAvoy. A recent explosion in violent drug-related crime in and around Hull has seen the flame-haired, gentle giant's workload drastically increase. One silent killer. A guilty secret - born of sex, politics and the criminal underworld - has given rise to a fresh evil; one that will soon stain each of these lives, linking their fates as painfully and intricately as tattooed markings on virgin skin. Original Skin is a crime novel that leaves a permanent impression. Half serial killer thriller, half gritty police procedural, it examines the imprints that our darkest sins leave upon us, and just how far we will go to keep them covered.

Even darker and grittier than its predecessor. I am rather taken by the lumbering gentle giant that is Aector McAvoy with his traveller wife and his innate sense of justice. Trish Pharoah as his boss is beautifully drawn- brash, witty, ambitious and funny as hell. A tightly plotted, multi layered story that keeps you reading well into the night.
