Will Cochrane is the CIA's and MI6's most prized asset ... and their deadliest weapon. Since childhood, the only world he has ever known is a clandestine realm of elaborate lies and unholy alliances—where trust is rare, betrayal comes cheap, and a violent death is often the penalty for being outplayed by an opponent. Cochrane has never been outplayed ... so far.

Now his controllers have a new game: neutralize one of the world's most wanted terrorists, believed to be a general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards. Cochrane's unpredictability makes him the one agent capable of catching his adversary off guard, and he believes he has the perfect plan. But on a breakneck race through the capitals of Europe and into America's northeast, the spycatcher will discover that his prey knows the game all too well ... and his agenda is more terrifying than anyone could have imagined.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 30, 2011 – British author Dunn draws on his real-life experience as an MI6 agent for his strong spy thriller debut. MI6 agent Will Cochrane, code name Spartan, winds up shot after a New York City mission involving an Iranian intelligence source goes bad. After a brief stay in a secret hospital, he takes on a new task—locating the mastermind of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, who's planning a massive terrorist attack. Will tracks down freelance journalist Lana Beseisu, who's now living in Paris and rumored to be the terrorist leader's one-time lover. Will and Lana form an alliance and an instant attraction, though Will knows he has to keep his hands off this beauty until the mission's successful completion. When Will learns that the Iranian terrorist was responsible for the death of his own father, revenge helps fire his search. While some predictable plot twists suggest Dunn is still learning his fictional craft, readers will want to see more of his distinctive hero, "the ultimate killer of killers."

Customer Reviews


Couldn't put it down.

Not worth the time

Even by potboiler standards, the plot is completely implausible and
Tedious. It had me groaning and rolling my eyes at every overdrawn cliche.

Too many other great options to waste your time.

Simplistic writing style. Illogical plot line. Cartoonish narration. Countless other good books in this genre. Mad at myself for finishing it. Should have just walked away.
