9781514189924: The Dead and the Missing: An Adam Park Thriller (Volume 1)

A brutal international underworld. A kidnapped girl. A PI determined to burn it all. When Adam Park’s former mentor recruits him to locate a vulnerable loved one, he learns very quickly that the girl is either the victim of an ex-con’s manipulation or the brains behind the robbery of a major criminal enterprise. Whatever the truth may be, she is in mortal danger. Tracking the pair from the UK to Paris, then Paris to Asia, Adam delves into the murky and violent world of human trafficking and extortion, where he must draw upon the darkest corners of his psyche to survive. But these are facets of himself he has long denied exist. Bubbling just beneath the surface, Adam has kept his anger and violence caged all his life. Because he’s a good person. Isn’t he? The Dead and the Missing is the first Adam Park novel, a journey that launches a PI from the relative safety of the corporate world to the hard-boiled existence required to get the job done. At any cost to his soul. Pick up your copy of this international thriller today!

About the Author:

A. D. Davies grew up in Leeds, West Yorkshire. In high school his ambition was to be a writer of horror novels, although in adult life he became an avid fan of crime fiction. After a long stint in an unsatisfying job, he attended the University of Leeds where he attained a degree in creative writing. Now writing novels, his signature style involves placing characters in dangerous, heightened situations, where violence isn’t constant, but when it does surface, there are always consequences. When a character gets hit, it hurts; when a gun is fired, it’s always a big deal; and killing isn’t something people do lightly. A. D. Davies is well-travelled, his favourite destinations being New Zealand and Vietnam, which have influenced his writing immensely, especially obvious in his novel Twilight Burning, released early summer 2015. For now, however, globe-trotting is taking a back-seat to raising his two children and writing, although he hopes to one day combine all three. He now resides in Staffordshire, UK, with his wife and two children. Connect in the following ways: Twitter: @authoraddavies Facebook: Website: (including email list sign-up) A.D.

Readers' Favorite

The Dead and the Missing is loaded with twists and turns and excitement, and had me holding my breath in fear several times, never being one hundred percent sure of how it would end. A.D. Davies is a very talented author who understands the how-to's of writing a thriller to keep you on the edge of your seat. I found The Dead and the Missing to be everything the book description said and much more. It was a great read and is highly recommended. The Dead and the Missing has all the ingredients of a five star winner.
