What if you took the plot of Strangers on a Train but removed the train and added spousal abuse and copious alcohol? You would have The Favor.
While the plot is familiar, it moves at a good pace. I read it in one sitting. I was expecting a bit more from the end. However, overall, The Favor is a good domestic suspense beach or airplane read. 4 stars!
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
