Summary

In Tokyo, Charlie Hillier discovers you can’t always bank on the truth. 
 


Fresh off a harrowing experience in Russia, Charlie is keen to lay low, and his latest posting to Tokyo offers him the chance to immerse himself in a truly foreign culture. 
 


Charlie is soon drawn into his first consular case when a successful young investment banker winds up in a coma following a
car accident. After a man claiming to be a friend of the banker’s turns up dead, Charlie and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police inspector assigned to investigate the murder, Chikako Kobayashi, discover that trusting the banker — who emerges from his coma with amnesia — may be a dangerous decision. 
 


As Charlie tries to sift truth from deceit, he’s unsure if he’s dealing with a man whose accident has brought about a profound change for the better or a devious criminal lurking behind a convenient facade.

    Soon to be a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and Henry Golding, and directed by Paul Feig 
    "Riveting and brilliantly structured, A Simple Favor is an edge-of-your seat domestic thriller about a missing wife and mother that relies on a rotating cast of unreliable narrators to ingeniously examine the cost of competitive mom-friends, the toll of ordinary marital discontent and the fallacy of the picture-perfect, suburban family."—Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author 
    She’s your best friend. 
    She knows all your secrets. 
    That’s why she’s so dangerous. 
    A single mother's life is turned upside down when her best friend vanishes in this chilling debut thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. 
    It starts with a simple favor—an ordinary kindness mothers do for one another. When her best friend, Emily, asks Stephanie to pick up her son Nicky after school, she happily says yes. Nicky and her son, Miles, are classmates and best friends, and the five-year-olds love being together—just like she and Emily. A widow and stay-at-home mommy blogger living in woodsy suburban Connecticut, Stephanie was lonely until she met Emily, a sophisticated PR executive whose job in Manhattan demands so much of her time.  
    But Emily doesn’t come back. She doesn’t answer calls or return texts. Stephanie knows something is terribly wrong—Emily would never leave Nicky, no matter what the police say. Terrified, she reaches out to her blog readers for help. She also reaches out to Emily’s husband, the handsome, reticent Sean, offering emotional support. It’s the least she can do for her best friend. Then, she and Sean receive shocking news. Emily is dead. The nightmare of her disappearance is over. 
    Or is it? Because soon, Stephanie will begin to see that nothing—not friendship, love, or even an ordinary favor—is as simple as it seems.  
    A Simple Favor is a remarkable tale of psychological suspense—a clever and twisting free-fall of a ride filled with betrayals and reversals, twists and turns, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge. Darcey Bell masterfully ratchets up the tension in a taut, unsettling, and completely absorbing story that holds you in its grip until the final page.

    "You have heard me say many times, Watson, that when the impossible has been eliminated, what remains, however unlikely it may seem, is the truth. But what happens when the impossible cannot be eliminated?"
    London, 1895.
    While investigating a case of potential identity theft, Sherlock Holmes finds himself in the middle of a war between the Egyptian Fremasonry and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn for the possession of the ultimate grimoire, the Al Azif, the Book of Dead Names, the infamous Necronomicon itself... 
    "I do not know what readers might think when they finish these pages," claims Dr. Watson. "There is a lot in this story that seems incredible, unlikely, as it seemed to me at the time. I have told you what I witnessed, without distortion or concealment. Whether what Holmes and I saw and heard was true or not is for you to decide."
    Rodolfo Martinez brings together two of the greatest literary myths of all time: the Baker Street detective and the misanthropist from Providence. The outcame is a fascinating adventure whose roots are at the very core of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's and H. P. Lovecraft's creations.
