"Great talent, great imagination, and real been-there done-that authenticity."
--Lee Child

"Not since Fleming charged Bond with the safety of the world has the international secret agent mystique been so anchored with an insider's reality."
--Noah Boyd, author of The Bricklayer and Agent X

Matthew Dunn knows his spycraft--and he proves it once again in Sentinel, his second electrifying Spycatcher novel. A former British M16 field officer trained in all aspects of intelligence collection, small-arms and explosives, military unarmed combat, and more, Dunn has an addition talent most other spies lack: he can really write! In Sentinel, Dunn brings back Agent Will Cochrane--whom Kirkus Reviews calls, "a Nietzschean hero who looks poised to give Lee Child's Jack Reacher a run for his readers"--and sends him to Avacha Bay in eastern Russia, where he must infiltrate a top-secret submarine base, decode a cryptic message from a deep undercover operative, and quite possibly prevent a devastating war. Espionage fiction fans who regularly devour the works of Daniel Silva, Robert Ludlum, Alex Berenson, Ted Bell, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Barry Eisler will discover there's a new ace on the international thriller scene.

Review quote

-Spycatcher makes a strong argument that it takes a real spy to write a truly authentic espionage novel . . . [The story] practically bursts at the seams with boots-on-the-ground insight and realism . . . Dunn is a gifted storyteller.---Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Spycatcher

Back cover copy

The United States and Russia are on the brink of war and only Will Cochrane--the master spy introduced in the critically acclaimed Spycatcher--can find and unmask the diabolical double agent responsible in this enthralling espionage thriller, written by a real-life former field officer.

Fourteen days ago, CIA headquarters in Virginia received a cryptic message from an agent operating deep undercover. Unable to make contact, they were forced to turn to their deadliest operative--Will Cochrane. His mission is simple: infiltrate the remote submarine base in Russia, locate the MI6 agent operating under the code name Svelte, and decode his message--or die trying.

But now Svelte is dead. And it's up to Cochrane to uncover the meaning of his final message . . . and discover the identity of the man known only as "Sentinel."
