Sober and disillusioned with London, tabloid journalist Stephen Larkin reluctantly accepts an assignment to cover a gangland funeral back home in Newcastle.

Several years earlier he had left sick and disgusted, vowing never to return, but the pull of the city, and the promise of a juicy story, finally persuades him to return. While there, Larkin’s old flame Charlotte asks him to check out the alleged suicide of her friend Mary – a course of action that will leave Larkin bruised, battered and with some painful memories of the city he was trying to forget.

Dark, compelling and relentless, Mary’s Prayer is Martyn Waites’ razor-edged crime debut.
