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.

I bought "Spycatcher"' the first book in this series from the bargain table at my local B&N store. The authenticity blew me away so I ordered "The Sentinel" figuring for a possible letdown; however, it was a page burning thriller with twists and turns and deceits and intellectual games that started early and lasted to the very end. I have already pre-ordered the third in the series to be released in June 2013. WKCNJ

Matthew Dunn in his new book, "Sentinel" Book Two in the Spycatcher series published by William Morrow gives us another adventure with master spy Will Cochrane. From the back cover: The United States and Russia are on the brink of war and only Will Cochrane--the master spy introduced in the critically acclaimed Spycatcher--can find and unmask the diabolical double agent responsible for it all in this enthralling espionage thriller, written by a real-life former field officer. Fourteen days ago, CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, received a cryptic message from an agent operating deep undercover in Russia: "He has betrayed us and wants to go to war." Unable to make contact, the director of operations is forced to turn to one of his most deadly field officers--Will Cochrane. His mission is simple: infiltrate the remote submarine base in eastern Russia's Avacha Bay, locate the MI6 agent operating under the code name Svelte, and decode his message--or die trying. It's a near-impossible task-even for a man who carries the code name Spartan, a title given to the most effective and deadliest Western intelligence officers. Will successfully locates the base but finds Svelte near death, his last words a final clue: Only Sentinel can stop him. Meanwhile, political and economic tensions between the United States and Russia are rising by the day, with both sides rounding up known enemy sleeper agents within their borders for interrogation. Now it's up to Will--with the help of the top-secret joint CIA-MI6 Spartan Section--to uncover the true meaning of Svelte's message . . . and discover the identity of the legendary operative known only as Sentinel. I think the best spy stories are the ones that deal with double agents. Double agents work along side of you and look and act just like agents that you feel you can trust. The only problem is they also work for the other side. In this adventure Cochrane's life is great danger as he is charged with bringing down the double agent that is bring the United States and Russia to the brink of war. As a former MI6 field officer, Matthew Dunn was trained in all aspects of intelligence collection, deep-cover deployments, small arms, explosives, military unarmed combat, surveillance, and infiltration, and conducted approximately seventy missions - all of them successful. If anyone can write about spy versus spy missions with authenticity it is Mr. Dunn. "Sentinel" is a wonderful thriller as the tension mounts as Cochrane is undercover in Russia to decode the dying man's message and keep from getting killed. "Sentinel" is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. When you finish this book you will heave a hugely satisfying sigh because you have enjoyed yourself immensely. Mr. Dunn has provided us with a great spy in Will Cochrane. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series from this very talented author. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Harper Collins.

I was looking forward to reading this book after reading "Spycatcher" but was very disappointed. "Sentinel" did not capture the drama, story line and development of characters I found in "Spycatcher".

From the suspenseful opening pages to the action packed ending, this is a nonstop winner. Will Cochrane is the agent in the joint CIA-MI6 cosponsored Spartan program. That's right, The Agent. Only one man can be the best and that man is Will Cochrane. The best is what we need, because someone has betrayed the CIA and is about to push the US and Russia into war. Will is going to have to try and contact the British secret agent, coded named Sentinel, who has been buried deep undercover in Russia for years. Only with the help of Sentinel's counter spies and contacts, can Will have a chance of uncovering the threat and averting a nuclear war. You won't find a suspenseful thriller with a more action packed, wonderfully convoluted plot than this all summer. Will Cochrane's first assignment was in Spycatcher. The book was provided for review by Amazon Vine and the well read folks at William Morrow.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read. A confused and confusing "plot" that mostly features unrealistic travel in Russia and Eastern Europe, a random array of people, none of whom is of any interest, and much nasty violence. If I was not obsessive-compulsive, it would have made more sense to quit about one-third of the way into this miserable tale.
