"Great talent, great imagination, and real been-there done-that authenticity make this one of the year's best thriller debuts."
--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, New York Times bestselling author of Agent X and The Bricklayer

"A real spy proves he is a real writer--and a truly deft and inventive one. Spycatcher is a stunning debut."
--Ted Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Warlord

A real life former field officer, Matthew Dunn makes an extraordinary debut with Spycatcher, a masterwork of international espionage fiction that crackles with electrifying authenticity. Fans of Daniel Silva, Robert Ludlum, Brad Thor, and Vince Flynn will be on the edge of their seats as intelligence agent Will Cochrane--working on a joint covert mission for the CIA and MI6--sets out to capture a brilliant and ruthless Iranian spy. Timely and gripping, Spycatcher rockets the reader into a shadowy world of terrorism and counter-terrorism, and holds them in an iron grip until the last pulse-pounding page is turned.

Review quote

Once in a while an espionage novelist comes along who has the smack of utter authenticity. Few are as daring as Matthew Dunn, fewer still as up-to-date. This isn t the Cold War, this isn t even the last ten years, it s the CIA and MI6 as they are now. --John Lawton, author of "A Lily of the Field" and "Black Out""

Back cover copy

Matthew Dunn spent years as an MI6 field operative working on some of the West's most clandestine missions. In Spycatcher he draws on this fascinating experience to breathe urgent, dynamic new life into the contemporary spy novel.

Will Cochrane, the CIA's and MI6's most prized asset and deadliest weapon, has known little outside this world. And he's never been outplayed. So far . . .

Will's controllers task him with finding and neutralizing one of today's most wanted terrorist masterminds, a man believed to be an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general. Will believes he has the perfect plan, but soon discovers, in a frantic chase from Europe to New York, that his adversary is much more treacherous than anyone he has ever faced--and survived--up to now.
