Book Review- Andrew Grant- Die Twice

Andrew Grant- Die Twice (St. Martin’s Press 2010) 3.25 Stars

David Trevellyan finds himself brought to Chicago by the British Consulate. He must locate and hunt down a man who has gotten his hands on a deadly toxin and intends to sell it to the highest bidder. This may sound easy, but right from the beginning things start to go haywire. Many lives are at stake, including his own, but that doesn’t faze him as he hunts down his target and tries to take the toxin from the wrong hands.

The introduction for this book was decent, if you eliminate the first page. It grabs your attention and makes you want to read on. The plot was a good one, with lots of twists and turns. It was pretty predictable, especially the main big twist at the end, which I saw coming from the first couple of chapters. I was kind of annoyed by the tidbits of useless information that took up a page at a time at many points throughout the book; they slowed down the intensity and left me wondering why they were included. I also was annoyed by the fact that Grant at several points that should have been action packed, left me wondering why they were cut. He would lead you on so that you ended up on the edge of your seat and then end the chapter and just leave it off at you finding out that the situation was handled, but you did not get to see how he handled it. The characters though were a redeeming factor for this book. They were very well done and showed that this author does have some skill.
