9780062038050: Slingshot: A Spycatcher Novel (Spycatcher Novels)

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.

From the Back Cover:

On the streets of Gdansk, Poland, Will Cochrane waits for a Russian defector bearing a top-secret document. But when the target shows up, so does a team from the Russian foreign intelligence service SVR. Then, in a hail of crossfire, a van speeds into the melee and snatches the defector out from under them all. Everyone wants the man and the codes he carries—but now he's gone, and it's up to Will and his CIA /MI6 team to find him before the Russians do.

Tracking the missing Russian and his kidnappers, Will believes the defector has his own agenda. But soon it's apparent that the real perpetrator is a former East German Stasi officer who instigated a super-secret pact between Russian and U.S. generals almost twenty years ago. An agreement, which if broken, is designed to unleash the world's deadliest assassin.

And when the Russians task their own "spycatcher" to retrieve the document, Will must face two very clever, deadly adversaries who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims.

About the Author:

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.
