Nobody Heard Me Cry #Review

Nobody Heard Me Cry – P A Davies 

About the Book

Beth Murray: a prostitute in her twenties working the streets of Manchester, with little more than troubled memories to show for her existence.

Douglas Mann: a respected headmaster & middle-class family man, with a comfortable
lifestyle to show for his.

Two different people living two different lives.

Inspired by actual events, this is the story of how fate dramatically altered the course of
those lives and brought them together in one dark world. a world filled with violence, drugs and gangsters, a world where hopes, dreams and fairy tale endings have no place.

A world where nobody hears you cry!

My Review

This is the second book I’ve read by P A Davies and certainly most definitely will not be the last! 

 The first was Letterbox (click the link to read my review for that book) and I still think about this book nearly 12 months later.  It is one book that has stayed with me for a while and no doubt will always stay with me. 

This one is centred around Beth Murray, a prostitute working the streets of Manchester.  We also meet Douglas Mann a headmaster and respected family man.  

Two completely different people who meet through various circumstances and we follow the story and path that they follow.

The book is based on actual life events and I found this to be a riveting read.

PA Davies writes books with such passion and enthusiasm you could be forgiven for thinking he has a vivid imagination, so when you realise that it is based on real life events it can send chills down your spine.

I am now debating on which PA Davies book should be next on my TBR List. 

About the Author 

P.A. Davies grew up in Manchester, UK, a place he has lived in and around all his life – he loves Manchester and is proud to be part of the multi-cultural, modern city that houses two Premiership football teams and is the birthplace of many a famous band, such as Oasis, the Stone Roses, Take That and Simply Red.

For most of his life, he dabbled with writing various pieces, from poems to short fictional stories just for fun. However, following advice from a good friend he decided to have a go at writing a novel. Thus, his first novel ‘Letterbox’ was conceived, a fictional take on the infamous IRA bombing of Manchester in 1996. It took him over a year to complete but while doing so, he found it to be one of the most satisfying and interesting paths he had ever followed. It comes as no surprise that the writing bug now became firmly embedded within him.

P.A. Davies’ second book was published in May 2013, ‘George: A Gentleman of the Road’, a true story about one of Manchester’s homeless. His third novel, ‘The Good in Mister Philips’, is an erotic novel (arguably set to rival Fifty Shades…!) and his fourth, ‘Nobody Heard Me Cry’ (Dec. 2015) is again a fact-based tale, this time of Manchester’s darker side. The thriller ‘Absolution’ (Oct. 2017) is his fifth novel. Currently, P.A. Davies is writing his sixth novel, titled ‘I, Muslim.’

To label P.A. Davies’ writings would be difficult because his works diverse from thrillers to touching novels to true-to-life tales embedded in a captivating story for the author is an imaginative and versatile storyteller.
