on Tour October 23 - November 30, 2017
In this riveting entry in the celebrated thriller series, former intelligence operative Will Cochrane—a "ruthless yet noble" (Ft. Worth Star-Telegram) man from whom "Bond and Bourne could learn a thing or two" (Madison County Herald)—comes out of hiding to expose a conspiracy involving a past assassination that reaches to the highest echelons of the U.S. government.Three years ago, intelligence officer Will Cochrane was brought in by a Delta Force colonel to assassinate a terrorist financier in Berlin. After the job, the commander vanished, and hasn’t been heard from since. The details don’t quite add up, and one of the CIA agents who was involved has been investigating the mission. He reaches out to Will for help, but before they can connect, the CIA man is poisoned.
Will is determined to uncover the truth about Berlin, even if it means putting himself in the crosshairs. Framed for multiple murders, the skilled former spy has gone deep underground to evade his enemies and the feds. But honor and loyalty to his old colleague thrust him into danger once again.
When Marsha Gage at the FBI 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 time running out, Cochrane will use all of 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.

I can so really enjoy a good espionage thriller and I love the Spycatcher series by Matthew Dunn.
I have read several books in this series but not all of them and that is what I like about this series you do not need to read all the books to enjoy one. Eventhough there is a lot of references to earlier happenings you are given enough information to understand it. Itjust also makes you want to read the other books.
With Will Cochrane Matthew Dunn has created a very intruiging character. It is nog like you can identify yourself with him but it is so easy to feel for him eventhough he definately is not a sentimental person. His persona fits him, he is one of the most feared spy and assassin in the world, but he still wants this life for himself with 2 boys he wanted to adopt. But is he capable of this with his past?
As usual Matthew Dunn gives lots of subplots throughout the story that weave together in the end. For the most part you know who is involved just not how they are involved and that is what I like, it keeps you guessing so you need to keep on reading to figure it all out.
If you enjoy espionage thrillers I definately recommend reading the Spycatcher series by Mathew Dunn.
My rating: 4.5/5
