"More Harm Than Good" is Andrew Grant's return to his David Trevellyan spy series after a two year hiatus. Gone are the chapter opening observations on spycraft or Trevellyan's past, which I quite enjoyed for their insights into the character. Instead, MHTG jumps directly into the action, or rather, the end of action, as Trevellyan is finishing his previous mission and ends up in the hospital.

Unlikely as it seems, a trip to the hospital that starts as a bit of a parlor mystery leads to what could be a major terrorist attack on the English government. As Trevellyan follows the trail of clues I liked the sense of dislocation he feels working back in his home country after spending so long in far flung places. Especially now that he realizes he's protecting citizens that do not appreciate how good they have it. After a methodical first half, the book ratchets up the stakes and doesn't let you go until it reaches the finale.

Overall it's a very solid third installment and it was interesting to see Grant mix up the formula. Trevellyan is carving out his own niche among the ranks of Quiller, November Man, Bond and the rest in the spy hall of fame. Here's hoping we don't have to wait another two years for the next installment.

I know that it's a cliché to say that an authors writing is getting better from book to book but I find that it is. David is a great character and in this book you can really tell he is out of his comfort zone, not only is he operating "at home" for the first time in his career but he is also having to work with others and his unease is clear to see. David's confusion at what is going on in England while he and his colleagues are risking their lives abroad is I imagine shared by a lot of our armed forces.

The descriptions are vivid and lifelike I was wincing at certain points. MHTG has certainly brought new meaning to the term "killer heels".

Highly recommended for any spy fiction/thriller fans

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.

this is my first experience with the work of Andrew Grant and I was very excited to discover that this is actually the third book in a series. Im a big James Bond fan and David Trevellyn definitely is in that mold. The writing is excellent, the plotting is fast paced and believable a, and best yet, this does not read like one of those books I've read a million times before. even though Hadn't read the first two, the book was a great introduction to the series.

Grant nails the setting and you can tell he knows his stuff. This book was a bargain, which made me willing to take a chance on a new author, but as soon as I finished, I downloaded the first two books in the series. I hope the next book comes out soon.

Andrew Grant is the brother of Lee Child and David Trevellyan is the much more proper British Jack Reacher.The plot pulls you in immediately and keeps you turning the page because you just have to know what happens next. The storyline is contemporary and oh so believable. If you like a really good read, and if you love Jack Reacher, then you can add Andrew Grant and David
Trevellyan to your favorite author list.
