Dunn delivers insights into a world most of us will never experience-except between the covers of a book, or maybe someday in a movie as good as the best of the Bond and Bourne sagas. Oakland Tribune on Sentinel). Great talent, great imagination, and real been-there, done-that authenticity.

Matthew Dunn's "Spycatcher" series (now, with "Sentinel," into its second book but is clearly destined for a long run) follows America's most lethal agent, Will Cochrane, in a breakneck race against a madman to save the world from a Russian madman and nuclear war. That general plot. That general plot description could apply to many of the novels written during the Cold War era. We've trodden this ground before - the question becomes whether Dunn does so in such a way that we don't mind all that much.

7 primary works, 9 total works. 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 outpl. ore.

Matthew Dunn knows his spycraft and he proves it once again in Sentinel, his second electrifying Spycatcher novel.

Matthew Dunn knows his spycraft—and he proves it once again in Sentinel, his second electrifying Spycatcher novel. A former British M16 field officer trained in all aspects of intelligence collection, small-arms and explosives, military unarmed combat, and more, Dunn has an addition talent most other spies lack: he can really write! In Sentinel, Dunn brings back Agent Will Cochrane—whom Kirkus Reviews calls, “a Nietzschean hero who looks poised to give Lee Child’s Jack Reacher a run for his readers”—and sends him to Avacha Bay in eastern Russia, where he must infiltrate a top-secret submarine base, decode a cryptic message from a deep undercover operative, and quite possibly prevent a devastating war. Espionage fiction fans who regularly devour the works of Daniel Silva, Robert Ludlum, Alex Berenson, Ted Bell, Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and Barry Eisler will discover there’s a new ace on the international thriller scene.

This book is the continued saga of the top spy/assassin of the British Secret Service. The story line intertwines with working with the CIA in eliminating threats to both Britten and the US. The plots are fast and furious and actually well done. What is annoying is the complete lack of trade craft by the main characters and the amateurish writing and mistakes in terms of US military/intelligence language that I'm surprised the editors have not pointed out. In addition the main character has some traits that are not believable for a "professional". When frustrated he has a habit of " stomping his foot, or smashing his fist on a table, or kicking a pile of dirt or snow". These are the traits of a spoiled child not of a "professional".
The author needs to do more research of field operatives. The mistakes in terminology,character development and complete lack of trade craft for a top spy/assassin make this a below average book for me..

I have decided that books which carry rave reviews by other authors are to be avoided. I don't know what motivates these reviewers, but I am sure it isn't a craving to reveal excellence to the public. This book is none of the things described.And one of the reviewers might not have even read the book since he misdescribes the villain's rank. What we have in this book is clumsy writing with great detail given to trivial matters about a preternatural villain who may also be omniscient pursued by the world's premier agent who may also be the most inept.

Awesome reading. Fastpaced, descriptive, knowledgeable. Matthew Dunn knows his subject and tells the tale flawlessly, grabbing the reader at page one and keeping them in his tale through the final climactic moments. Bravo!

This was my first experience with this author. It was a good read and I would read another of his books. He obviously knows his stuff and his background gives him a great deal of experience on which to draw.

There was a lot of history in this novel, a lot of names I could not even think of pronouncing, it was slow, untoward the end it got better
This is the 1st book by Matthew Dunn and I hope it is not his last! Normally I find authors who bombard you with the nitty gritty details of how/when/why a little tiresome but Mr Dunn has managed to integrate all of this knowledge into the meat of the book with ease, in fact it is written in such a way that you actually need to know all of the details. The book is set mainly in Russia during winter. MI6 has an operative code name Sentinel who was betrayed and held in prison for 6 years before escaping. Despite his brutal torture he is sent back to Russia where he is so deeply under cover even his Masters have trouble finding him. His particular skill is to turn high ranking Russian officers and his network of master spies is second to none, until suddenly they start to be brutally murdered. Another MI6 agent with a little help from the CIA, is sent by HQ to locate Sentinel and find out the who and the why these Assets are being killed. The novel is extremely well written and the plot not so far fetched you can't believe any of it. The action is fast paced and even the good guys take hits proving that although they are highly skilled operators they are still human and can get hurt and killed. It has twists and turns from beginning to end and I can thoroughly recommend this novel to anyone who is an action junkie! My congratulations to you Mr Dunn and I look forward to your next novel.
