A gripping debut domestic suspense novel, Nora Murphy's thrilling The Favor explores with compassion and depth what can happen when women pushed to the limit take matters into their own hands.

Staying is dangerous. Leaving could be worse.

Leah and McKenna have never met, though they have parallel lives.

They don’teverfind themselves in the same train carriage or meet accidentally at the gym or the coffee shop.

They don’teverdiscuss their problems and find common ground.

They don’teveracknowledge to each other that although their lives have all the trappings of success, wealth and happiness, they are, in fact, trapped.

Because Leah understands that what’s inside a home can be more dangerous than what’s outside. Driving past McKenna’s house one night, she sees what she knows only too well from her own marriage: McKenna’s “perfect” husband is not what he seems. Leah decides to keep watch over McKenna, until one night, she intervenes, and sets into motion events that will change both their lives forever.

Leah and McKenna have never met. But they will.

In The News

"Taut, compelling and deliciously dark, I tore through The Favor."—B.A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of The Therapist

"Nora Murphy's The Favor is a tense and gripping read about the tacit sisterhood between two unlikely vigilantes. At once strangers and soulmates, these women reflect one another—each trapped in a dark and spiraling descent behind the closed door of a seemingly lovely home. With echoes of Big Little Lies and Strangers on a Train, Nora Murphy's The Favor is impossible to put down."—Mary Dixie Carter, author of The Photographer

"I loved following the parallel lives of Leah and McKenna, two strangers whose actions tie them together forever. I felt as if I was there with them, living the horrors they had to endure, although Nora Murphy portrays the women as survivors instead of victims. The Favor is a page-turning debut that will have you questioning the lengths you’d go to save someone else, even though it’s you that needs saving."—Sandie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Guilt Trip

“Dark and unsettling, The Favor is a gripping story of bravery and compassion which lingers long after the final page.”—Victoria Selman, international bestselling author of Blood for Blood
