Publisher's Summary

David Trevellyan, a Royal Navy intelligence operative, takes a late-night walk to his New York City hotel. A huddled shape in 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. Obliged to clear his name, and 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.

Critic Reviews

"Modern noir at its best....Even is brilliantly plotted and smart, and delivers the bone-jarring kick of a .45. Here's hoping author Grant is hard at work on the next installment featuring his thoroughly compelling tough guy hero, David Trevellyan." (Jeffery Deaver)

hardboiled throw back to Dashiel Hammet

I enjoy this genere so I liked this book, I think the narrator could have done the surrounding characters voices a bit better but in any event it made my commute breeze by a bit quicker. Give it a try

EVEN IS RIGHT, TOO DAMN EVEN!

The book has a certain "Bondian" attitude at times, cartoonish escapes and more evil than evil villains, and dead folks littering the playing field, but it takes a tack and stays there. Should have been called "Even Keel". Then he kills off the only likable player of the lot, Tanya (sp).
Vignette after vignette with little or no suspense. No crescendo building or mystery lurking. David is mean-spirited and soulless enough but even the remotest and detached of the double-oughts has a little sex along the way. Once they broke out the formaldehyde the imagery had nowhere to go but down.
