Matthew Dunn uses his experience as a former MI6 field officer to bring transfixing realism to Slingshot, his third Spycatcher novel featuring Will Cochrane—MI6’s, and now the CIA’s, most prized asset and deadliest weapon.
 
In Slingshot, Cochrane is ordered to recover a mysterious document stolen by a Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SRV) traitor working for a former high-ranking East German Stasi officer. The officer, years before, had instigated a secret pact between Russian and U.S. generals. The agreement stipulated that should it be broken, an assassin would immediately be set loose after an unknown target.
 
The SRV has sent their own version of Cochrane, a cold-blooded, brilliant operative, to retrieve the document, pitting spycatcher against spycatcher.
 
Slingshot, with its cat-and-mouse espionage, brutal action, and complex protagonist, is a must-read for fans of Robert Ludlum and Lee Child.

Editorial Reviews

“Slingshot is anything but a paint-by-number spy thriller. Matthew Dunn’s third Will Cochrane novel is a complex work with a twisting and turning plot that moves ever forward, loaded with the double—and triple—crosses that readers who follow the author have come to expect. . . . should be added to the must-read lists of all fans of espionage thrillers.” — Bookreporter.com“Dunn’s exuberant, bullet-drenched prose, with its descriptions of intelligence tradecraft and modern anti-terrorism campaigns, bristles with authenticity. . . . True to form, Cochrane is riven with demons. A graduate of Cambridge University, he is feared by friend and foe alike, [and] burdened with more angst and less panache than James Bond. . . .Save for works by Alan Furst, good thrillers have been thin on the ground of late. Mr. Dunn has redressed this balance with an altogether gripping book.” — The Economist“Dunn did not disappoint with his debut novel Spycatcher and its follow-up Sentinel. But what was most exciting was the realization that the spy-turned-author did not merely have a great resume—he also possessed a superlative talent for three-dimensional characterization, gripping dialogue, and plots that featured gasp-inducing twists and betrayals . . . Now Dunn’s talents come to full fruition in Slingshot.” — Examiner.com
