Publisher's Summary

Daniel Marchant, a suspended MI6 officer, is running the London Marathon. He is also running out of time. A competitor is strapped with explosives: if he drops his pace, everyone around him will be killed, including the US ambassador to London. Marchant tries to thwart the attack, but is he secretly working for the terrorists? There are those in America who already suspect Marchant of treachery. Just like they suspected his late father, the former head of MI6. On the run from the CIA, Marchant is determined to prove his father's innocence in a personal journey that takes him from Wiltshire, via Poland, to India. It was here that the former MI6 chief once met with one of the world's most wanted terrorists, and where the new President of America is shortly to visit. But was that meeting proof of a mole within MI6 or the best penetration of Al Qaeda the West has ever had? And was Marchant's father the keeper of another, darker secret?

Neat Paced Spy Novel

First in a series of three so far. I came to this novel after reading the third Dirty Little Secret, which was much better. Without criticising the narrator too much so is Colin Mace's reading in the later novel. The writing gets better in the third. Interested now to listen to the second.

Dead Spy Running!

I've never really read/listened to spy novels before, but I downloaded this as I'd read that Warner Bros had snapped up the rights for the film, even before the release of the hardback!

The audiobook draws you in right from the beginning with the set of the London Marathon and with the many twists and turns keeps you listening throughout. For a spy novel that's not overly complicated story, Dead Spy Running is a good choice.

An excellent spy novel.

I didn't know what to expect from this novel, but I found it really compelling. The plot is fast moving and really hangs together with lots of twists and turns.
