Publisher's Summary

Matthew Dunn spent years as an MI6 field operative working on some of the West’s most clandestine missions. He recruited and ran agents, planned and participated in special operations, and operated deep undercover throughout the world. In Spycatcher he draws on this fascinating experience to breathe urgent, dynamic new life into the contemporary spy novel.
Featuring deft and daring superspy Will Cochrane, Dunn paints a nerve-jangling, bracingly authentic picture of today’s secret world. It is a place where trust is precious and betrayal is cheap - and where violent death is the reward for being outplayed by your enemy.
Will Cochrane, the CIA’s and MI6’s most prized asset and deadliest weapon, has known little outside this world since childhood. And he’s never been outplayed. So far....
Will’s controllers task him with finding and neutralizing one of today’s most wanted terrorist masterminds, a man believed to be an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general. Intending to use someone from the man’s past to flush him out of the shadows, Will believes he has the perfect plan, but he soon discovers, in a frantic chase from the capitals of Europe to New York City, that his adversary has more surprises in store and is much more treacherous than anyone he has ever faced - and survived - up to now.

Ehhh . . . I want my time back

Pretty silly "spy" story: Guy gets shot lots of times (stomach, brain, through the ears, kneecaps) but never misses a day's work, and saves the world. (YAWN)

Juvenile and just bad

This is a simplistic and at times nonsensical and contradictory novel.

First all characters not only seem one dimensional, but they are the same dimension. Good guys, bad guys, men, women, old and young all seem to be the same person. You can only tell them apart by the different over acted voices. I cannot blame the reader for that however, because the dialogue was so bad.

"I AM SPARTAN"
"I AM MAGEEDO"
"I HAVE COME HERE TO KILL YOU"
"I WILL STOP YOU",

The main character was not just unbelievable, he was annoying also. Very early the story pointed out how the SPARTAN was so special. If this is the best in MI-6, they have problems. At one time he chose not to kill an innocent person who came between him and his objective. Yet he killed four allies earlier for the same reason earlier.

In the second half, I had a hard time keeping my mind focused on the story.
