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.

Waites’s The Mercy Seat (2006) was his sixth, but the first to cross the ocean. His overwrought and purplish debut, originally published in 1997, might just as well have stayed home.
Mary’s Prayer was published in 1997, and Waites followed it with three more novels starring the same character, an investigative journalist named Stephen Larkin. Since then Waites has divided his time between acting and writing. After concluding the Larkin series in 2003, he created another journalist protagonist, troubled reporter Joe Donovan, who made his first appearance in The Mercy Seat. Waites’s most recent novel is Speak No Evil.
