Review: THE FAVOUR, Nicci French

Synopsis (publisher)

A good deed
Can turn deadly…

When Liam unexpectedly turns up in Jude’s life after ten years of no contact, asking her for a favour, she just can’t say no. He was her first love, and even though she is now a successful doctor and about to get married, he will always be someone special to her.
But after she does the favour, she is contacted by the police, informing her that Liam has been found dead, and suddenly she is caught up in a murder investigation.

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

My Take

Ten years before Liam had done Jude a favour, and now it is payback time. Although she has had no contact with him in the intervening period, and they have gone their separate ways, Jude has no hesitation in agreeing to Liam's request. He assures her that he will describe it more fully later, but that there is nothing illegal about what he wants her to do. It starts with her driving his car to a country cottage, and then waiting for him there.

This is a tightly plotted, very intriguing, novel, and at the start Jude can have no idea of how much her life will be changed because of her decision to go along with Liam's request.

An excellent read.

My rating: 4.8
