Re-inventing the spy story for the 21st century.

John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne!

Suspended MI6 agent Daniel Marchant is running out of time. He's alongside a man strapped with explosives at the London Marathon. If they drop their speed the belt will detonate, killing all around them. But is Marchant secretly working for the terrorists?

Marchant's father, ex-chief of MI6, was accused by the CIA of treachery. To prove his innocence, Marchant must take a perilous journey via Poland and India to unearth his father's dark past, test his relationship with fellow spy Leila and challenge the heavy hand of America's war on terror.
Most of all, he has to learn to trust no one.

Review quote

"Dead Spy Running is a rip-roaring race of a read that never lets up until the finishing tape - and a bit beyond." Robert Goddard
"As elegant as le Carre and as cynical as the twenty-first century ... exactly what we need from a spy novel now." Lee Child
"A Jason Bourne sweat-fest with George Smiley's brain" - Daily Telegraph
"An elegant, unstoppable front runner of a spy thriller" - The Observer
"Picks up more or less where Le Carre left off" - The Guardian
"A compelling thriller" - Sunday Times
"Its deliciously John Buchan-like hero could be chasing the 39 steps" - Daily Mail
"As strong as Bourne, as clever as Bond, but with a voice set for Generation Next, Jon Stock has done the impossible in Daniel Marchant and created THE new spy." Stephen Gaghan
"A turbocharged thriller." Booklist
"A masterfully orchestrated page-turner." Kirkus Reviews
"Stock fuses the cerebral complexity and cool prose of early le Carre with a tough, smart hero modeled on Jason Bourne in this excellent spy thriller." Publisher's Weekly
