Meet Detective Sergeant Alicia Friend. She’s nice. Too nice to be a police officer, if she’s honest.

Yet, despite a perky personality that irritates the most professional of detectives, she is also one of the most respected criminal analysts in the country.

Now assigned to DI Donald Murphy’s team, she finds herself in the grip of a northern British winter, investigating the kidnap-murders of two young women - both strikingly similar in appearance. When a third is taken, they have less than a week to chip away the secrets of a high-society family, and uncover the killer’s 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 a former FBI agent also arrives from New York, with his own deadly agenda. 

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.

    Dear Mr. A. D. Davies, I read your book titled 'His first, his second.' with great pleasure. Your writing is so fresh, your characters too. I hate torture, think you do like it but you didn't go into dreadful long periods that creeped me. Lots of interesting plot changes. I am about to read the next two books in this series. Wish you well Mr. A. D. So glad I picked your book! Maggie Zed.
