Overview

“Modern noir at its best…Here’s hoping Grant is hard at work on the next installment featuring his thoroughly compelling tough guy hero, David Trevellyan.”

—Jeffery Deaver, on Even

 

In his gritty, action-packed debut, Even, Andrew Grant introduced readers to David Trevellyan, a James Bond for the twentyfirst century. Now, Trevellyan returns in Grant’s latest, a fastpaced, modern thriller fueled by adrenaline and revenge. 

 

Obliged to leave New York City in the aftermath of his previous mission, David Trevellyan is summoned to the British Consulate in Chicago. To the same office where, just a week before, his new handler was attacked and shot by a Royal Navy Intelligence operative gone bad. Assigned the job of finding the rogue agent and putting an end to his treacherous scheme, Trevellyan soon finds that once again, his only hopes of saving countless innocent lives lie not within the system, but in his own instincts and skills. Trust is an illusion—trust the wrong person, and it could get you killed.

Drawing comparisons to Robert Ludlum, and his own brother, Lee Child, Andrew Grant’s remarkably seasoned voice cuts a new path through the crime thriller genre, continuing to test the limits in this groundbreaking new series.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lt. Cdr. David Trevellyan continues to operate on U.S. soil in Grant's testosterone-fueled second adventure to feature the British naval intelligence officer (after Even). After leaving behind seven dead bodies in New York City, Trevellyan reports to veteran liaison officer Richard Fothergill in Chicago, where a rogue British operative, Tony McIntyre, is planning to sell a secret and deadly gas to the tiny West African nation of Equatorial Myene. With Fothergill providing intel, Trevellyan attempts to locate McIntyre with orders to effect a “hard arrest,” i.e., kill him, and to recover the gas canisters from either McIntyre or the Africans. The stakes rise as more than one bidder has his sights set on the gas, and Trevellyan and Fothergill have only each other to rely on. Trevellyan is macho enough and deadly enough to satisfy the most jaded thriller fan, though he's slower than most readers will be to figure out what's going on. (May)
From the Publisher
“Puts the reader in the front seat of heart-pounding action scenes…A solid adrenaline rush from start to finish.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“A compelling mix of espionage, counterterrorism thriller, and kick-butt urban noir [at] a breakneck, page-turning pace.”Booklist

“Lt. Cdr. David Trevellyan continues to operate on U.S. soil in Grant’s testosterone-fueled second adventure…[He] is macho enough and deadly enough to satisfy the most jaded thriller fan.”—Publishers Weekly

“A James Bond-like British intelligence agent…Trevellyan is a great character; while larger than life, his observations of human nature make him sympathetic and intriguing.”RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

“Grant writes thrillers like a man who has lived it, his knowledge of spycraft and the ins and outs of what is involved with an operation in this grey world of espionage strikes a little too true….Andrew Grant is a author on the rise and he and Trevellyan look to be ready for a long stay.”—Crimespree Magazine

Library Journal
David Trevellyan returns shortly after the events that ended Grant's debut novel, Even. Exiled from New York and at loose ends, Trevellyan comes to the aid of a legendary member of the British Royal Navy Intelligence Service trying to recover a canister of lethal gas. Grant's first-person narration puts the reader in the front seat of heart-pounding action scenes with a hard man who has no compunction about killing. The tension is relieved by Trevellyan's wry, understated sense of humor but never long enough to make the story lose momentum. VERDICT A solid adrenaline rush from start to finish from the brother of Lee Child. [Library marketing; national tour.]
Kirkus Reviews
British superspy Trevellyan, who, in his debut (Even, 2009) outsmarted the NYPD, the FBI, his own Royal Navy intelligence service and bottom-feeders on both sides of the pond, is back again toiling and foiling. Ordered to report to the British consulate in Chicago, Lieutenant Commander David Trevellyan leaves New York-scene of his most recent sorties against the iniquitous-hoping to be posted back to London. Not on. What does happen is the sort of doleful assignment that all honest and true intelligence agents must hate like poison. Actually, it concerns poison. Also, an unmitigated traitor, a fellow intelligence officer who, it turns out, is smart, resourceful and as adept at homicide as Trevellyan himself. With a career somewhat on the wane, Trevellyan had been hoping for a more conventional assignment, one that might help him regain favor from jaundiced admirals grown weary of mavericks. Instead, he's lumbered with a "hard arrest"-"the kind that involves body bags rather than handcuffs." Still, as he listens to Richard Fothergill, the liaison officer, make the case against Tony McIntyre, the reprobate in question, he begins warming to the task. Things like the stolen canisters of gas are persuasive. Lethal enough to poison by the thousands, they were lifted by Macintyre for the sole purpose of making him rich, in aid of which the killer gas is now being offered on the open market-genocidal perps with deep pockets please apply. But to secure a hard arrest, one needs proximity to a more or less cooperative body, and cunning MacIntyre is proving endlessly elusive. So, the cat-and-mouse game's afoot with the cat and mouse changing places at murderous intervals. The part about the body bags? No worries there. Skimpy plot, shallow characters, sophomore jinx. Wait for the next.

    You Won't Read Die Twice Twice

    Die Twice is one of the most uninvolving thrillers I have come upon in recent times. It simply never begins to get interesting. The characters are shades of people, the object of the thriller too nebulous, and why have we British agents trying to secure mystery gas in the US? Don't you think that in reality they might tell their US counterparts about it? Tedious, not thrilling.

    Die Twice

    I haven't read the first book that introduced David Trevellyan, but in Die Twice, this British agent in still the U.S. This time he is in Chicago and his task is to find a rogue agent that has attacked his handler. This novel read like a James Bond thriller and Andrew Grant develops his story quite well. But I found my mind wandering as the story dragged in some spots. I don't know, maybe it's me. I love a good spy thriller, but I am not sure if this one was a good fit for me.

    I Also Recommend:

    Obvious

    Within the first few pages it was obvious who the bad guy was. It was just beyond belief that an intelligent, savvy British agent like Trevellan was so utterly unaware. I've read both of Grant's novels and will stick to his brother's more interesting character, Jack Reacher.

    This is an exhilarating action-packed thriller

    British Naval Intelligence officer Lieutenant Commander David Trevellyan remains in the United States as a field operative. He completes his current assignment though is forced to depart from New York City (see Even) leaving behind seven corpses.

    He goes to the British Consulate in Chicago as directed by his superior, liaison officer Richard Fothergill, who was just shot by an apparent turncoat. Fothergill has hardcore evidence of a traitor; British agent Tony McIntyre, who wounded him. He is selling a deadly gas to the African nation of Equatorial Myene. Trusting no one and
    understanding that deadly force is not just an acceptable option, it is expected to be used; as Fothergill wants McIntyre stopped at all costs and the sale prevented. As he searches for the rogue, Trevellyan learns other potential buyers are bidding on the nasty toxin.

    This is an exhilarating action-packed thriller that never slows down for a respite. Mindful of Bourne and Bond, the fast-paced story line may be over the top of the Sears Tower, yet delighted fans will not want to put down Die Twice as Trevellyan makes sure the undertakers have customers.
