Quotes & Awards

  • “An international espionage thriller par excellence. Lyrical prose, unforgettable characters, and a fascinating plot that doesn’t release the panting reader until the last page.”

    Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Option

  • “An authentic espionage novel with accurate tradecraft and operatives who act with intelligence. Set in the Cold War, packed with history and tension, it’s a must- read for any true spy-novel fan. If you like vintage John le Carré, you'll love Free Agent.”

    David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Scavenger

  • “Duns’ terrific debut will draw inevitable comparisons to early John le Carré, though the lead character, turncoat British Secret Service agent Paul Dark, is a complete original…Seldom has a thriller plot taken more unseen turns as Paul searches for the truth about his past and the reality of his present. Readers will eagerly await the sequel.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Superior fiction with an unexpected twist.”

    Library Journal

  • “Journalist Duns debuts with a thriller offering more spins than a Bolshoi gala, as an MI6 agent combs Nigeria for a lost love who can untangle a labyrinthine scheme devised during World War II.”

    Kirkus Reviews
