Publisher Comments:

SUSPENSEFUL…TERRIFYING…AN EXCELLENT THRILLER

THAT FEELS LIKE BREAKING NEWS.”—Thomas Perry

“When I saw the body, my first thought was to just keep on walking.

This one had nothing to do with me.”

Hes one of the best undercover agents in the world. A seasoned operative for British intelligence. But when he finds a body in the streets of New York, David Trevellyan is a prime suspect. Arrested by the NYPD, interrogated by the FBI, Trevellyan swears he had nothing to do with it. But no one believes him—especially when the victim turns out to be a federal agent. Now his country wont help him. His contacts cant save him. But that wont stop a man like Trevellyan. Whoever set him up is going down. Even if it kills him…

Review:

"Jason Bourne fans will welcome Grant's thrill-packed debut, which introduces Lt. Cdr. David Trevellyan, of Royal Navy Intelligence. Near the end of a mission in New York City, Trevellyan's chance discovery late one night of a bum in an alley with six neatly arranged bullet holes in his chest makes the secret operative the NYPD's prime suspect in the man's murder. After the FBI takes over the case, Trevellyan learns the victim was an undercover agent for the bureau, the sixth to die in a series of killings. Disavowed by his British bosses, Trevellyan realizes he has to fend for himself in what is clearly some sort of frameup. A villainess with a taste for genital mutilation lends a James Bondian touch, but Grant, bestseller Lee Child's younger brother, never strikes a false note in a plot that could have gone over-the-top in lesser hands. Effortlessly filling in bits of his protagonist's backstory during breathing spaces between action scenes, Grant closes on a nicely dark note. Author tour. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

David Trevellyan is a Royal Navy intelligence operative who usually works undercover, sometimes with the approval of his mastersand 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 eyea homeless man has been shot to death. Trevellyan steps forward…and a cop car arrives. A split second too late, Trevellyan realizes hes been set up.

But Trevellyan isnt worried. Hes a hard man from the shadowy world of Royal Navy Intelligence. Hes 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: Youre on your own now, mate.

With no idea whos a friend and whos 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 dont get madyou get EVEN.

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