How did you feel about books like the Bourne Trilogy? Did you love the pulse pounding action or the complexity of the plots, in the way that everything seemed to be tied together in some crazy ‘I never would have thought of that’ way? Then I’ve found your next book. Matthew Dunn’s Dark Spies is a new spy thriller that will leave you shell shocked and begging “Please sir, can I have another”. This book is a fresh new take on the time honored genre, and is a story all it’s own. Matthew Dunn is a spy novel master and this, his latest work is a testament to how creative and talented he really is. Dark Spies is a fast paced read that you’ll work through quickly, trying to frantically keep pace with the characters as they try to work themselves out of one of the most precarious positions a spy could find themselves in. Dangerous and motivated politicians, duplicitous agents and a mysterious operation that everyone keeps mentioning but no one is talking about. There’s a ton to love in Dark Spies.
No stranger to the intelligence community himself, Matthew Dunn recruited agents for MI6 and coordinated special operations, while also taking an active role in deep cover ops around the world. Dunn brings his wide range of experience to his unique character, Will Cochrane. An American born, MI6 operative who fought for the French Foreign Legion before being trained for an extremely intense, lone-wolf position with MI6 where he also worked in conjunction with the American CIA. Operating in Norway, Will butts heads with the CIA when they tell him to stand down, which means allowing their agent to be murdered in the field. After disobeying the orders, Will finds himself on the run and being blamed for a failed operation. Authorities on both sides claimed that Will went rogue and must be brought in – dead or alive. What ensues is his thrilling journey back to the United States in order to find out more about this mysterious opp and to clear his name.
