His First His Second by A. D. Davies

Book 1 in the Alicia Friend Investigations series

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

She is also one of the most respected criminal analysts in the country, now assigned to a cold northern town, investigating the kidnap-murders of two young women. Now a third has been taken. But Richard—the father of the latest victim—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.
