Publisher Description

As a unique female detective hunts a serial killer through a bleak British winter, a ruthless father will stop at nothing to find his daughter.

Meet Detective Sergeant Alicia Friend. She's nice. Too nice to be a police officer if she's honest. And maybe—if pushed—she might admit she keeps her quirky personality front and centre to keep the darkness of her job at bay. But when a third girl is taken amid a killer's sick murder spree, she has to face this dark world head-on.

Alicia has less than a week to get her new colleagues to trust her, chip away the secrets of a high-society family, and uncover the killer's real objective.

But Richard—the father of the 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, the clock is ticking until another innocent person dies, and Alicia will be forced into choices that will impact the rest of her life.

If you like British crime thrillers with unique female protagonists, buy His First His Second, the first in A. D. Davies's compelling Alicia Friend Investigations series.

His First His Second

I enjoyed reading this book!!!!

Uses Jesus’s name in vain. Not necessary and won’t read someone that feels it is okay to dishonor my Lord and Savior

Hard to keep track of characters

Very interesting book once you get into it. My problem was keeping all the names of the people straight.
