Overview

Sentinel (Spycatcher Series #2) by Matthew Dunn

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 in this enthralling espionage thriller, written by a real-life former field officer.

Fourteen days ago, CIA headquarters in Virginia received a cryptic message from an agent operating deep undercover. Unable to make contact, they were forced to turn to their deadliest operative—Will Cochrane. His mission is simple: infiltrate the remote submarine base in Russia, locate the MI6 agent operating under the code name Svelte, and decode his message—or die trying.

But now Svelte is dead. And it's up to Cochrane to uncover the meaning of his final message . . . and discover the identity of the man known only as "Sentinel."

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, covert deployment, 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, Dunn conducted approximately seventy missions. All of them were successful. He lives in England, where he is at work on the fourth Spycatcher 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".

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.
