Washington Post

The Ray Guinness novels, so far, have contained a rich emotional mix.  Nicholas Guild exhibits the required skill in plot complications, a good sense of setting and atmosphere and the mandatory familiarly with the trivia of espionage, but his basic attraction is that he writes about believable human beings.  I will look forward to the next Ray Guinness novel.
