The Dark Winter by David Mark

Book: The Dark Winter (DS Aector McAvoy #1) 
Author: David Mark
Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: When a young girl is slaughtered in front of her congregation, it is up to an idyllic DS to solve the crime. 
My rating: 3.5 Stars
My opinion: A new series for me! I thought this book stared off stronger than it ended, but I still enjoyed the ride in this debut novel. The writing and character development started off strong. I feel the author kind of let it slip towards the end and simply wrapped the book up which was disappointing. Furthermore, I felt that there were a couple of slips or missteps (underdevelopment)  in the writing, but would expect that to a point in a new series. 

I am happy I accidentally stumbled upon this!

Would I recommend? : Yes, for those who love British mysteries.
Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Will be part of series.
