This second novel featuring David Trevellyan, a James Bond-like British intelligence agent, is fast paced and deals with a crisis that is believable and compelling. Trevellyan is a great character; while larger than life, his observations of human nature make him sympathetic and intriguing.
Trevellyan is called in to hunt down a rogue British agent who is trying to sell a deadly gas to a terrorist organization. Along with his new agency handler, Trevellyan tracks the elusive criminals with limited help. Despite the seriousness of the situation, British intelligence wants to keep things quiet and deal with its rogue agent internally. Trevellyan's plans are continually thwarted as he races to uncover and stop the terrorist plot. His adversaries stay a step ahead, right up to the final chapter. (MINOTAUR, May, 352 pp., $24.99)
