From Amazon:

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. Mistake. 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: Is he doing MORE HARM THAN GOOD?

My Thoughts:

I read Even and Run and really enjoyed them. I found his protagonist, David Trevellyan, extremely likable and a great deal like the Jack Reacher character of his brother's books, yet with a diffident story of his own and entirely his own man. This one...More Harm Than Good...just never took off. The plot didn't make a great deal of sense and exactly who the good guys were and why they were doing what they were doing was just not clear...at least not to me. There are a lot of odd items...like people in hospital gowns and slippers wandering out to restaurants. Maybe in the UK the hospital gowns are different than they are here...but ... The ending is definitely different...who would expect someone with a tourniquet on their arm to be standing around discussing their future rather than heading to a hospital? It got 3 stars because I like the author and I like the character..just didn't much like THIS particular offering. I'll await the hopefully better next one. ( )
