Book Description

Rule one: don’t mess with a tough guy with time on his hands.

Especially if you have secrets to keep.

A head injury requires a mandatory health check. That’s Naval Intelligence’s standard procedure. Covert operative David Trevellyan doesn’t like procedure. But he goes along to get along. He agrees to a hospital stay and an MRI.

Then someone steals his boots.


Trevellyan decides to keep himself in the hospital until justice is served. His bosses don’t share his priorities, so - in trademark fashion - he takes matters into his own hands. The trap he sets slams shut with ruthless efficiency.

But Trevellyan finds he’s caught more than a thief. He’s stumbled into a complex, multi-layered conspiracy designed to cause incalculable diplomatic damage.

For the first time in his career Trevellyan must operate in his home territory. He approaches the task with his customary vigor. But between criminals on one side and regulations on the other, he’s more isolated than ever. And as a virtual stranger in his own land, with the body-count rising and his time running out, he’s soon facing the soul-searching question:

5.0 out of 5 stars David Trevellyan 3 is the best yet 29 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent David Trevellyan thriller 26 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third David Trevellyan thriller from Andrew Grant and it is another great read, especially if you want a good book to take on holiday. More twists and turns than a formula one circuit, which will keep you guessing right to the end. This time Trevellyan is unusually back on "home turf", so many of his UK fans will recognise the locations, but he still manages to get himself mixed up in all kinds of mayhem just the same..........and all becuase someone nicked his boots!

More Harm Than GoodI have been looking out for the latest Andrew Grant novel for sometime. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books - great escapism and David Trevellyan's character was developing nicely with self deprecating wit. However with More Harm than Good I had the impression that this was a first novel written by someone else completely - the style of writing had changed, the plot was weak, the prose was jerky. I was constantly distracted by the typos and poor grammar (I wanted to get out the red correcting pen!), and the dialogue was definitely lacking in substance. Please bring back the real Andrew Grant!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Clunky at best 12 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Got this as I thought it would be worth checking out Lee Child's brother. Huge mistake. I kind of like the main character, but he is no Reacher. Overall the plot us unconvincing, doesn't flow and at times just dull.

1.0 out of 5 stars MHTG - shockingly bad 11 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Having previously read and loved AG's first two books I waited with great anticipation for More Harm Than Good. What a huge disappointment - what a boring, utter load of rubbish. Really was hard to read and I only finished it as I don't like to leave books unfinished and in the vain (got vainer the nearer to the end I got) that it would get better. It reminded me of Mo Hader, her first two books were really great and her third Tokyo - utter rubbish.
MHTG - was a laboured and hugely disappointing book, weak and boring plot, no pace and so far-fetched as to be ridiculous - not sure what went wrong for Andrew Grant and can only hope that it was a blip in his writing

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard work 19 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found myself flicking backwards and forwards trying to make sense of the plot. Might be me but not usually something I have to do. It's decent value for money but you wouldn't have liked to have paid much more.
