On the run from the CIA, intelligence operative Will Cochrane heads to the U.S. to uncover a diabolical spymaster at the center of an international conspiracy in this thrilling follow up to Slingshot.
When Will Cochrane encounters a Russian spymaster—codenamed Antaeus—who everyone believes is dead, he is thrust into a deadly game set in motion by powerful players deep inside the U.S. intelligence community. Will has worked with the CIA for years and knows them all. But now he knows there’s no one he can trust.
His orders from Langley are clear: ANTAEUS MUST NOT BE TOUCHED. FURTHER INQUIRIES REQUIRE PROJECT FERRYMAN CLEARANCE. But as Antaeus and his men then attempt to execute the CIA’s best agents, Will decides to take his own shot at the spymaster, knowing it will make him a marked man.
Now, the only way to save his career—and his life—is to get into the U.S. and expose the truth about Project Ferryman. But to accomplish that he’s got to outmaneuver four deadly Russian assassins and an elite FBI team controlled by shadowy officials who will stop at nothing to keep their sins and secrets safe.

On the run from the CIA, intelligence operative Will Cochrane heads to the United States to uncover a diabolical spymaster at the center of an international conspiracy in this thrilling follow-up to Slingshot
Will Cochrane crouches on a hilltop, assembling his sniper rifle. He's still thinking about being removed from his mission tracking the terrorist financier Cobalt. Instead, he's been sent to babysit a CIA operative and her asset in Norway, a routine assignment far below the skill level of the only agent to earn the code name Spartan. But as he scans the vista before him, he sees something that's just not possible, an eminent Russian spymaster—code-named Antaeus—whom Will is sure he killed three years ago. . . .
Will reports to Langley immediately and the response is emphatic: Antaeus Must Not Be Touched. Further Inquiries Require Project Ferryman Clearance. Almost as soon as he hears this, Will sees Antaeus's men execute the asset Will was sent to protect, and Will decides to take a shot at the spymaster, knowing it will make him a marked man. Will manages to kill the attackers and save the CIA operative, but the elusive spymaster slips from his grasp, and both the CIA and MI6 tell him to surrender for disobeying orders.
Now the only way to save his career—and his life—is to get into the U.S. and expose the truth about Project Ferryman. But to accomplish this Will has to outmaneuver four deadly Russian assassins and an elite FBI team controlled by officials who will stop at nothing to keep their sins and secrets safe.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.
