Exciting Crime Thriller- Set in Leeds-slated for release 20th November



Fanatics of crime fiction are in for a real treat when A.D. Davies releases his debut novel, His First His Second, on November 20, 2014.










































His First His Second tells the story of Alicia Friend, one of the most respected criminal analysts in the U.K., who finds herself back in her home town assigned to Donald Murphy's team, investigating the kidnap-murders of two young women—both strikingly similar in appearance. Now a third has been taken, and they have less than a week to penetrate the secrets of a high-society family, and uncover the killer's objective.


But Richard—the father of latest victim—believes the police are not moving quickly enough, so launches a parallel investigation, utilising skills honed in a dark past that is about to catch up with him. 


As Richard’s secret actions hinder the police, Alicia remains in contact with him, and even starts to fall for his charms, forcing her into choices that will impact the rest of her life.

When asked about the inspiration behind the enthralling story, the author said: "The inspiration for the book came from my home town of Leeds, West Yorkshire. I wanted to use the geography and feel of the city to bring my novel to life." 


He further added, "I wrote the original in 2004, then rewrote it in 2007, and now it’s had another polish via myself and a professional editor. It was actually the sub-plot (or side-plot) that came first, the idea of Richard tracking his daughter and circumventing the police. But, as I made him more devious and conniving, I realised I needed a different angle. So I came up with Alicia."


His First His Second is a fantastic read from start to finish that will keep readers guessing and at the edge of their seats. The book is available for pre-order on Amazon for £1.99/$2.99. To pre-order the book visit:
