David Trevellyan is a Royal Navy intelligence operative
who usually works undercover, sometimes with the approval
of his mastersâ€”and 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 eyeâ€”a homeless
man has been shot to death. Trevellyan steps forwardâ€¦and a
cop car arrives. A split second too late, Trevellyan
realizes heâ€™s been set up. But Trevellyan isnâ€™t
worried. Heâ€™s a hard man from the shadowy world of Royal
Navy Intelligence. Heâ€™s 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: Youâ€™re on
your own now, mate. With no idea whoâ€™s a friend and
whoâ€™s a foe, he penetrates deep into a huge international
conspiracy.Â 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 donâ€™t get madâ€”you
get EVEN. If Jack Reacher had a younger brother,
heâ€™d be David Trevellyan. Lee Child does have a younger
brother, and his name is Andrew Grant. A remarkable debut,
Even delivers on its ownâ€”a tight, fast-paced,
modern thriller fueled by adrenaline and revenge.

I'm glad you liked the pacing; it's one of
