“Great talent, great imagination, and real been-there done-that authenticity make this one of the year’s best thriller debuts.”
—Lee Child

“Not since Fleming charged Bond with the safety of the world has the international secret agent mystique been so anchored with an insider’s reality.”
—Noah Boyd, New York Times bestselling author of Agent X and The Bricklayer

“A real spy proves he is a real writer—and a truly deft and inventive one. Spycatcher is a stunning debut.”
—Ted Bell, New York Times bestselling author of Warlord

A real life former field officer, Matthew Dunn makes an extraordinary debut with Spycatcher, a masterwork of international espionage fiction that crackles with electrifying authenticity. Fans of Daniel Silva, Robert Ludlum, Brad Thor, and Vince Flynn will be on the edge of their seats as intelligence agent Will Cochrane—working on a joint covert mission for the CIA and MI6—sets out to capture a brilliant and ruthless Iranian spy. Timely and gripping, Spycatcher rockets the reader into a shadowy world of terrorism and counter-terrorism, and holds them in an iron grip until the last pulse-pounding page is turned.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/14/2014

    " Written by a real spy - a member of Britain's MI5. Interesting for that reason. But the guy is a male chauvinist and has no understanding of women and so the female characters were completely artificial and made the book flat for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Hoffman Brauman | 2/7/2014

    " Excellent spy novel. Will Cochrane is MI6's most elite agent. He is assigned a joint mission with the US to prevent a major terrorist attack by Iran. The mission is both professional and personal as the man he seeks has ties to his own past. Very fast-paced and action-packed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clint | 2/1/2014

    " I know some of the reviews aren't very positive for this book, but I really liked it. I agree that the main character seems indestructable, which I find in alot of thrillers, but the story was interesting and since it was written by a MI6 operative, I would be interested to know if situations like the story in the book have really happened and how often. I think that there are numerous terroism attempts that we just dont hear about. Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxy | 1/18/2014

    " I think I held my breath for the last 150 pages of this book! I would read another book by this author and am now searching for some MI6 stories... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodie Brandt | 1/8/2014

    " I think I have become a Matthew Dunn fan! Full throttle spy action, what James Bond should have been! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 12/25/2013

    " Well written. Great details, kept you hooked until the end. Adrenaline pumping action throughout the book. Didn't give it a 5-star because some of the action scenes were implausible. Congratulations to Mr. Dunn on his first effort. Well done! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/23/2013

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Will Cochrane; an MI6 agent code named Spartan is simultaneously trying to stop a plan by an Iranian madman and save a woman who is key to the plot, with help from an elite team of US operatives "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 12/14/2013

    " I enjoyed it as a quick, keep-my-interest read. Lots of spy-type details, but not as heavy as Ludlow's. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 False Millennium | 12/3/2013

    " Readable, but a Lee Child wannabee. Very...muscular. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 11/23/2013

    " Excellent, fast-paced, thriller. You can really tell that Matthew Dunn is former MI6 by the details he mixes into this debut! His style reminds me a lot of Lee Child and I look forward to more from this author! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad | 10/13/2013

    " If you are looking for a fast paced, action packed spy novel (written by a former spy), then this is it. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and if you're fans this genre, then I'd strongly recommend it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Slpeirce | 7/21/2013

    " Spy novel the your manly, but conflicted spy. I gave up after the main character brooded one too many times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patrick John | 5/8/2012

    " I'm having a difficult time getting through this story. I think the author is asking for the reader to suspend too much disbelief. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott Fletcher | 1/24/2012

    " Absolutely terrible. Cliches galore. Hilariously contrived dialogue. Horrible treatment of women. I would suggest no one read this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patrick | 11/8/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SongoftheWolf | 8/26/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. The writing leaves no doubt that the author was, in fact, doing the exact same things he put his character through. But the ENDING!!!! I MUST read whatever comes next! Engaging plot, even though it slowed in some parts, deep characters, and page-turning suspense. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Larry | 8/21/2011

    " The opening scene was preposterous and was delivered in a wooden style. It stopped me cold. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 8/12/2011

    " I wasn't able to finish this thriller due to the mountain of cliches I would have to have ascended, sans nifty spy gear. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 8/4/2011
