Especially if you have secrets to keep.
A head injury requires a mandatory health check. That's Naval Intelligence's standard procedure. Covert operative David Trevellyan doesn't like procedure. But he goes along to get along. He agrees to a hospital stay and an MRI.
Then someone steals his boots.
Trevellyan decides to keep himself in the hospital until justice is served. His bosses don't share his priorities, so - in trademark fashion - he takes matters into his own hands. The trap he sets slams shut with ruthless efficiency.
But Trevellyan finds he's caught more than a thief. He's stumbled into a complex, multi-layered conspiracy designed to cause incalculable diplomatic damage.
For the first time in his career Trevellyan must operate in his home territory. He approaches the task with his customary vigor. But between criminals on one side and regulations on the other, he's more isolated than ever. And as a virtual stranger in his own land, with the body-count rising and his time running out, he's soon facing the soul-searching question:
Is he doing MORE HARM THAN GOOD?

In this third David Trevellyan adventure we find our hero back in his native London and quite out of sorts. He's not used to being in his home town and certainly not used to working with others. Mr. Grant has done an excellent job of making us feel Trevellyan's pain at not being in his element and I found myself wishing he could be dispatched out of the country to put him out of his misery. I wasn't clear where the story was going to take me and had pegged numerous characters as evil, changing my mind over and over again until the final turn of the page revealed the real villain. There is a sufficient amount of action for thriller junkies and a lot of character development for those interested in story. It's a good mix of wit and espionage, with a very faint hint of romance thrown in, that I highly enjoyed. I look forward to the next installment.
