Andrew Grant introduces a twenty-first century James Bond in this new action-adventure series set on the gritty streets of New York. Walking to his New York City hotel late one night, Royal Navy intelligence operative David Trevellyan notices a huddled shape in the entrance of an alley. A homeless man has been murdered. As he steps forward, a cop car arrives, and Trevellyan suddenly realizes he's been set up. When the NYPD hands the problem to the FBI, the British consulate tells him he's on his own. 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 for the huddled corpse in the alley. The motivation will be his cherished, life-long belief: You don't get mad, you get even.

Professional reviews

"British Naval Intelligence officer David Trevelyan discovers a dead body in a Manhattan alley. Initially accused of the man's murder, Trevelyan becomes ensnared in an FBI investigation that puts him squarely in the crosshairs of a female psychopathic criminal kingpin. The plot and its wonderfully breathless pace are over the top in the best Bond tradition--listeners will risk missing their exit or spending extra time in the parking lot because they simply cannot stop listening. (Squeamish men should be advised of a particularly nasty torture scene involving a prized portion of the anatomy.) John Lee's patrician British accent perfectly embodies the coolly ruthless Trevelyan, but his attempts at American accents frequently border on caricature. A.B.G.
