The Request by David Bell

He was doing a buddy a favor.  He sneaks in the house to retrieve some letters written by his buddy.  The house is torn apart, he can't find the letters and he unfortunately finds a dead body.

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 30th.

His buddy claims no knowledge about the murder.  He also blackmails Ryan into remaining silent about it.  He claims a drunk Ryan ran over a girl and hit her sister.  Ryan doesn't remember.  But his buddy uses it for all he's worth.

This story is filled with lies and only here and there does the truth come out.

There are those who are envious of Ryan and his perfect life.  He wants to help his buddy but all he is is trouble.  Ryan gets caught up in his buddy's mess and even his family get threatened.  Ryan is trying to get clear but even his wife has lied to him.

Poor Ryan.  His life is spiraling out of control.  Can he stop it in time?
