Book reviews - Favor

Favor


Author: Parnell Hall
Stanley Hastings goes to Atlantic City to keep tabs on Sergeant MacAullif's wayward son-in-law, a favor that gets him arraigned for grand larceny and held on suspicion of murder.

"Neat Jolts of action, comically downbeat narration...and wisecrack dialogue." — Kirkus Reviews

"Hilarious...pure entertainment." — Publishers Weekly

"A very funny, very smart mystery series." — Booklist

"Hastings is a fresh twist on an old idea and is sure to be around for a long time to come." —Rave Reviews

"...a light-hearted romp, drolly told, and made pleasant by its deprecating, much put-upon and wholly charming hero." — The San Diego Union

"The primary pleasure in Favor--and it's a big one--is in Hall's entertaining telling of the story." — The Drood Review of Mystery

"Hall creates a lovable and real hero that anyone can identify with...Favor is a light novel that is perfect to unwind with." — South Bend Tribune
