Date of Release: June 30, 2020

Summary:

When a man agrees to do a favor for a friend, he gets more than he bargained for as he becomes embroiled in a woman’s murder in this new thriller from the USA Today bestselling author of Layover.

Ryan Francis has it all–great job, wonderful wife, beautiful child–and he loves posting photos of his perfect life on social media. Until the night his friend Blake asks him to break into a woman’s home to retrieve incriminating items that implicate Blake in an affair. Ryan refuses to help, but when Blake threatens to reveal Ryan’s darkest secret–which could jeopardize everything in Ryan’s life–Ryan has no choice but to honor Blake’s request.

When he arrives at the woman’s home, Ryan is shocked to find her dead–and just as shocked to realize he knows her. Then his phone chimes, revealing a Facebook friend request from the woman. With police sirens rapidly approaching, Ryan flees, wondering why his friend was setting him up for murder.

Determined to keep his life intact and to clear his name, Ryan must find the real murderer–but solving the crime may lead him closer to home than he ever could have imagined.

Review:

Oh my goodness, I could not put this riveting page-turning thriller down….
I was on the edge of my seat for practically the entire book.
David Bell captures you instantly and keeps that grip until the very  last page with “The Request”. 
All of the twists and unexpected turns were exhilarating. I never saw that ending coming !!!! 
The complex characters were extremely well developed.
This is definitely a “must read”!!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for fair and honest review.

5 Stars.
