Now Helen has been implicated in a multi-million-dollar scam in London – and the world says ‘like father, like daughter’.

From the reviews of Nest of Vipers:
‘Stylish thriller imparts all the fear and exhilaration of financial juggling on a massive scale’
‘A taut, sexy thriller’
‘This riveting suspense-high finance combo marks Davies – a former trader – as Wall Street’s answer to Scott Turow’
‘If John Grisham were female and British and attuned to the high-tech tintinnabulation of currencies changing hands around the world, he might write a twisty thriller such as Nest of Vipers’
‘Her writing style is mellifluous, her understanding of high-stakes currency trading authoritative yet unobtrusive, and her action scenes snap – making this a financial thriller with bull, not bear, written all over it’
From the Financial Jungle to the Real Jungle
Helen Jencks, a beautiful young woman working as a derivatives trader in the City of London uncovers a massive fraud in which she herself is the obvious suspect! By fleeing to Peru she escapes the trap set for her, but in her new, exotic surroundings it gradually dawns on her that she has put her life in great peril. Soon she is on the run again, from the Andes to the jungle, and from Peru to Columbia. The chances of her surviving, let alone ever returning to London to confront the men who framed her, seem remote.
My three years spent living in Peru, as well as my earlier career as a banker, provided the inspiration for this novel.
