"The world of spy fiction has a writer who deserves comparison to Ludlum and Fleming." -Booklist on Dark Spies
Three years ago, intelligence officer Will Cochrane was brought in by a Delta Force colonel to eliminate a terrorist financier in Berlin. Cochrane executed the target and slipped away, never meeting the other members of the team. But when the mission was over, the colonel vanished and hasn't been heard from since. Now, years later, members of the Berlin mission are being targeted for assassination-and one, a CIA agent, is close to discovering the truth when he narrowly escapes an explosive fire that destroys his home. He manages to track down the elusive Will Cochrane, and admits that everything Will has been told about Berlin is a lie.
Will is determined to uncover the truth about the Berlin job. Framed for multiple murders, the former spy has gone deep underground to evade his enemies and the Feds. But honor and loyalty to his colleague thrust him into danger once again. When FBI special agent Marsha Gage discovers that Cochrane-one of America's Most Wanted-has resurfaced, she immediately launches a manhunt, and she won't stop until she brings the former CIA/MI6 operative in.
With members of the original Berlin team turning up dead, Cochrane must use all his training and formidable skills to outmaneuver the FBI and uncover a shocking conspiracy that will rock the foundations of our nation . . . if he can stay alive long enough.
"I know of no other spy thriller that so successfully blends the fascinating nuances of the business of espionage and intelligence work with full-throttle suspense storytelling." -Jeffery Deaver on Spycatcher
As an MI6 field officer, Matthew Dunn recruited and ran agents, coordinated and participated in special operations, and acted in deep-cover roles throughout the world. He operated in environments where, if captured, he would have been executed. Dunn was trained in all aspects of intelligence collection, deep- cover deployments, small arms, explosives, military unarmed combat, surveillance, and infiltration. Medals are never awarded to modern MI6 officers, but Dunn was the recipient of a rare personal commendation from the secretary of state for work he did on one mission, which was deemed so significant that it directly influenced the success of a major international incident. During his time in MI6, Matthew conducted approximately seventy missions. All of them were successful. He currently lives in England, where he is at work on his next novel.
