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.

Summary:

In this high concept psychological suspense novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Somebody’s Daughter, a chance meeting with a woman in an airport sends a man on a
pulse-pounding quest for the truth…

Joshua Fields takes the same flights every week for work. His life is a series of departures and arrivals, hotels and airports. During yet another layover, Joshua meets Morgan, a beautiful stranger with whom he feels an immediate connection. When it’s time for their flights, Morgan gets up to leave, leans over and passionately kisses Joshua, lamenting that they’ll never see each other again.

As Morgan slips away, Joshua is left feeling confused by what just happened between them. That’s when he looks up and is shocked to see Morgan’s face flashing on a nearby TV screen. He’s even more shocked when he learns the reason why–Morgan is a missing person.

What follows is a whirlwind, fast-paced journey filled with lies, deceit, and secrets to discover the truth about why Morgan is on the run. But when he finally thinks every mystery is solved, another rears its head, and Joshua’s worst enemy may be his own assumptions about those around him…

Review:

David Bell takes a chance meeting during a layover at the Atlanta Airport in his newest novel “Layover” and turns it into an epic cat-and-mouse game that has you on the edge of your seat. You feel as though you’ve just jumped off the bungee rope into the abyss named Morgan Reynolds.

Be prepared to not put this book down, because I was unable to. You will need to know the outcome! It it truly riveting, mind blowing, and exhilarating.

David Bell truly is a master at building suspense and keeping you there!

It’s unimaginable how fast you can read this book….I believe it’s because you get a bit frenzied…Like the characters maybe? In an amazing way of course, because he draws you into his story that much!!!

Maybe he realizes his readers are yet another character!?!?

I’ve decided to make this the last book of my Decade….And, leave on an absolute High Note!

5 Stars.
