Description

In this riveting entry in the celebrated thriller series, former intelligence operative Will Cochrane—a "ruthless yet noble" (Ft. Worth Star-Telegram) man from whom "Bond and Bourne could learn a thing or two" (Madison County Herald)—comes out of hiding to expose a conspiracy involving a past assassination that reaches to the highest echelons of the U.S. government.

Three years ago, intelligence officer Will Cochrane was brought in by a Delta Force colonel to assassinate a terrorist financier in Berlin. After the job, the commander vanished, and hasn't been heard from since. The details don't quite add up, and one of the CIA agents who was involved has been investigating the mission. He reaches out to Will for help, but before they can connect, the CIA man is poisoned.

Will is determined to uncover the truth about Berlin, even if it means putting himself in the crosshairs. Framed for multiple murders, the skilled former spy has gone deep underground to evade his enemies and the feds. But honor and loyalty to his old colleague thrust him into danger once again.

When Marsha Gage at the FBI discovers that Cochrane—one of America's Most Wanted—has resurfaced, she immediately launches a manhunt, and she won't stop until she brings the former CIA/MI6 operative in.

With time running out, Cochrane will use all of his training and formidable skills to outmaneuver the FBI and uncover a shocking conspiracy that will rock the foundations of our nation . . . if he can stay alive.

      • bioText:

        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, deep- cover deployments, 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, Matthew conducted approximately seventy missions. All of them were successful. He currently lives in England, where he is at work on his next novel.

        A mission from Will Cochrane's past comes back to haunt him in Dunn's latest thriller. Cochrane was asked to assassinate a man who financed terrorists, and after the deed was accomplished, the man who gave him the assignment vanished, along with a lot of money. A CIA operative and friend of Cochrane's who knows what happened also knows that Cochrane has faked his own death to avoid prosecution for crimes that were falsely attributed to him. Cochrane agrees to meet the CIA man, but when he arrives, he discovers the man poisoned. What really happened three years ago, and who murdered his friend? The stakes escalate, and the tension mounts as Cochrane searches for answers. Fans of action-heavy thrillers set in the intelligence world are likely already reading Dunn, but if they're not, they should start. They won't be disappointed.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
