Indie Next ListSeptember 2011
At last! Here is an espionage thriller that is as suspenseful as Forsyth's Day of the Jackal, as cunning as le Carre's Little Drummer Girl, and as relevant as the front page of today's newspaper. Let's hope this is just the first of many more novels by this obviously multitalented former MI6 agent! -- Ellen Klein, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA
Matthew Dunn spent years as an MI6 field operative working on some of the Wests most clandestine missions. In Spycatcher he draws on this fascinating experience to breathe urgent, dynamic new life into the contemporary spy novel.
Will Cochrane, the CIAs and MI6s most prized asset and deadliest weapon, has known little outside this world. And hes never been outplayed. So far . . .
Wills controllers task him with finding and neutralizing one of todays most wanted terrorist masterminds, a man believed to be an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general. Will believes he has the perfect plan, but soon discovers, in a frantic chase from Europe to New York, that his adversary is much more treacherous than anyone he has ever facedand survivedup to now.
About the Author
As an MI6 field officer, Matthew Dunn recruited and ran agents, coordinated and participated in special operations, and acted in deep-cover roles throughout the world. He operated in highly hostile environments, where, if compromised and captured, he would have been executed. Dunn was trained in all aspects of intelligence collection, deep-cover deployments, small-arms, explosives, military unarmed combat, surveillance, and infiltration.
Medals are never awarded to modern MI6 officers, but Dunn was the recipient of a very rare personal commendation from the secretary of state for foreign and commonwealth affairs for work he did on one mission, which was deemed so significant that it directly influenced the successful conclusion of a major international incident.
During his time in MI6, Dunn conducted approximately seventy missions. All of them were successful. He lives in England.
Praise for Spycatcher LP…
