Even (David Trevellyan Series #1) by Andrew Grant

David Trevellyan is a Royal Navy intelligence operative who usually works undercover, sometimes with the approval of his masters—and sometimes not. On a seemingly normal evening, he takes a lonely late-night walk between a restaurant and his New York City hotel. A familiar huddled shape in the mouth of an alley catches his eye—a homeless man has been shot to death. Trevellyan steps forward…and a cop car arrives. A split second too late, Trevellyan realizes he's been set up.

But Trevellyan isn't worried. He's a hard man from the shadowy world of Royal Navy Intelligence. He's been in and out of trouble a thousand times before. But the NYPD quickly hands the problem to the FBI. Trevellyan is sucked deeper into the system. And the British Consulate tells him: You're on your own now, mate.

With no idea who's a friend and who's a foe, he penetrates deep into a huge international conspiracy. The price of failure will be death, and the reward for success will be redemption, both for himself and the huddled corpse from the alley. The motivation will be his cherished life-long belief: You don't get mad—you get EVEN.

If Jack Reacher had a younger brother, he'd be David Trevellyan. Lee Child does have a younger brother, and his name is Andrew Grant. A remarkable debut, Even delivers on its own—a tight, fast-paced, modern thriller fueled by adrenaline and revenge.

This author had me laughing out loud within the first 20 pages (the fight scene in the jail) had me rolling. Mr. Grant has offered up a mighty fine piece of literature the first time out. Read and enjoy. Also try Invasion America and The Dawn of Empire by Sam Barone.

I loved this book. It was exciting with many twists and turns. I am about to purchase book number two in the series.

I just finished this book and I am left with mixed emotions. It was a quick read and kept me engulfed, but the whole thing fell apart near the end, 330 pages of a story to have the whole book end in 2 pages. There was no ending. I do think the new author has some serious talent and I have to wonder if the authors original ending was not changed by a publisher, so more books could be sold in the future. Well at any point, if you have a day to blow and you want a fast read, check it out. i can guarantee that you will see more books to follow with the character David Trevellyan

There are 8 author blurbs on the back cover of Even, all touting this first novel. I have read 7 of 8 of these authors. Each of them could write a more interesting book than this in their sleep. In short, Even is a bore.

I liked this book. The style reminded me of classic mysteries like Raymond Chandler or Robert Parker, but instead of a streetwise, tough as nails P.I. you get a James Bond Superspy. Its a nice mix. Its a fast read and quite enjoyable though the very end was little disappointing. Kind of left you hanging though with a little imagination one could easily fill in the blanks for oneself. One word of warning some of the descriptions are very vivid and rather graphic. If your squeamish you may want to read with caution. Otherwise sit back and enjoy a fun ride.

In New York City, Royal Navy Intelligence Officer Lieutenant Commander David Trevellyan has completed a mission when he sees the corpse in an alley. A bum has six bullet holes arranged in fastidiously geometric order in his chest. David calls 911. The police immediately look at David as the prime and only suspect. However, before they can investigate, the FBI takes control of the case; as the victim is the sixth undercover agent murdered in such a manner in recent months. The Feds also look at David as more evidence surfaces that tie him to the murders. He knows his British intel agency must disown any knowledge of him, as standard operating procedure requires; so David knows he must find the predator with insider information setting him up to take the fall. This is an exciting thriller with a few super twists including tidbits about David's past that will keep and maintain the audience's attention throughout wondering what comes next. The story line is fast-paced and filled with plenty of action as David and readers rarely get a respite before something else occurs. Andrew Grant writes a fabulous tale as as the beleaguered Intel officer knows he is being set up for the fall and has no safety net from his agency; leaving it to him to extract himself from the frame before some agent decides to permanently make him the culprit by killing him.
