Sarah Broadhurst's view...

December 2013 Book of the Month.

Following on from The Spycatcher, the first in the series, we now go to Russia with special CIA operative, Will Cochrane, to contact Sentinel. The man who organises ten main Russian agents and who has a spot of bother to put it mildly, for the ten agents are being killed off one by one. That’s enough spoilers, suffice to say a mole must be found quickly. Lots of action all wraps it up pretty quickly at the end with a nice twist, albeit sometimes a bit slow getting there.

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

Synopsis

Sentinel A Spycatcher Novel by Matthew Dunn

'He has betrayed us and wants to go to war.' That was the cryptic message received by the CIA from an agent operating deep undercover in Russia. Unable to make contact, the Director of Operations is forced to turn to one of his most deadly field officers: Will Cochrane. His mission: track down the agent and decode the message - or die trying. Will successfully locates the agent, but finds him near death, his last words: 'Only Sentinel can stop him.'

Reviews

'Like le Carre and Fleming before him, Dunn is the real thing...His, though, is a more muscular creation than Smiley, or even Bond. Meet Will Cochrane, a one-man weapon of mass destruction' - DAILY TELEGRAPH

'An intelligent and entertaining summer read...solid and authentic' - FINANCIAL TIMES

'I know of no other spy thriller that so successfully blends the fascinating nuances of the business of espionage and intelligence work with full-throttle suspense storytelling' - Jeffrey Deaver Author

'Dunn has perfected the literary equivalent of the type of action movie that might star Stallone, Steven Seagal or The Rock' - IRISH INDEPENDENT

'A terrific thriller with a superb new hero...Bond and Bourne can take a back seat' - Matt Hilton

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.
