Written by a real-life James Bond. This author is the real thing.

When MI6, Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, calls in the manuscript of a first-time thriller writer's new book, you know that it's no ordinary thriller. And that the author is no ordinary author. Matthew Dunn spent 5 years as a field operative in SIS recruiting and running agents, planning and participating in special operations and operating deep undercover throughout the world. In SPARTAN, Dunn's explosive debut, he draws on his unique background to breathe dynamic new life into the contemporary spy novel.

If you like Matthew Dunn you might also like to read books by Matt Hilton, Vince Price and Robert Ludlum.

Synopsis

Spartan by Matthew Dunn

Featuring super-spy Will Cochrane, Dunn paints a nerve-shredding, stunningly suthentic picture of today's secret world. It's a place where trust is precious and betrayal is cheap. And where a violent death is the reward for being outplayed by your enemy. Will Cochrane, the Service's most prized asset and deadliest weapon, has known little else since childhood. And he's never been outplayed. So far...

Reviews

'Great talent, great imagination, and real been-there done-that authenticity make this one of the year's best thriller debuts. Highly recommended.'
Lee Child

About the Author

Matthew Dunn

Matthew Dunn was trained by SIS in all aspects of intelligence collection and direct action including agent running, deep-cover deployments, small-arms, explosives, military unarmed combat, surveillance, anti-surveillance, counter-surveillance, advanced driving, infiltration and exfiltration techniques and covert communications. He used his skills extensively on operations. Although typically he worked alone, but in conducting near seventy missions, he also had significant experience of working with highly-specialised units from the SAS and SBS as well as conducting joint-operations with MI5, GCHQ and the CIA. Medals are never awarded to modern MI6 officers, but Dunn was the recipient of a very rare personal commendation from the Foreign Secretary actions that directly influenced the successful conclusion of a major international incident. He lives in England.
