The Favor is a thriller but it stands head and shoulders above most of the other entries in this genre. Unlike the stick figures that populate so many of these books, the characters in The Favor are fully drawn and believable. They draw sympathy as well as disgust from the reader.
In addition, Nicholas Guild writes extremely well. His sentences are tight and well-constructed, and, additional bonus, his plot and sub-plots cannot be faulted.

Well-drawn, realistic characters and an action-filled, intelligent plot make this a first-class thriller.
