Library Journal highlights Andrew Grant in a roundup of summer men's fiction.
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.
