About The Favour

From an author ‘at the top of British psychological suspense writing’ (Observer) comes a heart-racing new thriller.
A good deed
Can turn deadly…

When Jude’s first love Liam turns up in her life after ten years of no contact, asking her for a favour, she just can’t say no. He will always be someone special to her.
But does she really know what she is getting herself into?

After she does the favour, Jude is contacted by the police. Liam has been found dead, and suddenly she is caught up in a murder investigation.

She realises this one decision could cost her everything – even her life…
