This debut spy series is just sensational. With a superb new super-spy hero, a contemporary plot and unrelenting action it knocks Bond and Bourne into a cocked-hat. Yes there is a big element of escapism and reality is put on hold - but this is fiction and it will have you hooked. Spartan is MI6‘s big secret - there to do jobs no one else will touch. Spartan is one man, Will Cochrane and he is detailed to find an Iranian undercover general who is plotting Armageddon.
The Second novel in the Spycatcher series, Sentinel, will be published in January 2013.
Its existence is no more than a rumour - a ghost force unbound by rules. Deniable, and devastatingly effective, MI6's Spartan Section is the West's last line of defence. And super-spy Will Cochrane is their most prized asset - and deadliest weapon. When intelligence reveals the trace of a terrorist mastermind, Cochrane is dispatched to hunt him down and prevent an attack that apparently has only one objective: Armageddon. In a world where trust is precious, betrayal cheap, and violent death the ultimate price to pay, Will Cochrane has never been outplayed by his enemies ...so far. [Published in hardback as SPARTAN]
