Molly is a book that will change your appreciation for psychological thrillers forever. The plot is intricately constructed which kept me on the edge of my seat through many twists and turns. Subtly drawn characters people this tale to wonderful effect. This is a creditable first effort from an emerging writer.

 ****

William Davies’ first novel tells of matters that draw much of their relevance from contemporary political affairs and destructive gender relations. The narrative’s major focus draws together the personal and public dimensions of human experience.

I found the plot highly imaginative and am particularly impressed with the way Davies has managed to interweave so many political issues that resonate today. At its heart, Molly explores the deep psychological impact wrought by trauma but it is not weighed down by the heaviness of the subject. Once Molly is introduced the pace doesn’t let up. It was satisfying to encounter so many twists that I didn’t see coming. This is a great effort from a new author and I look forward to reading more of William Davies work.

 ****

Molly is a well written first book by William Davies. It tells a tale about love and betrayal, politics and intrigue. It takes you into foreign countries and explores the behind the scenes power plays of ruthless leaders. Molly will keep you guessing the outcome until the very end. I couldn’t put it down.

 ****

Molly is an unusual, imaginative and exciting novel which drives the reader forward, breathless, as the plot unwinds at pace. The reader is immediately dropped in an unfamiliar and foreign location – third world tropical Africa – but quickly acclimatizes. The descriptive passages dealing with the atmospherics of the various locations and human interactions traversed are sensitively and beautifully written. As the Author’s first novel, one is left with the fond hope that it will not be his last. The author can tell a good story and the characters he creates ring true.
