Matthew Dunn uses his experience as a former MI6 field officer to bring transfixing realism to Slingshot, his third Spycatcher novel featuring Will Cochrane--MI6's, and now the CIA's, most prized asset and deadliest weapon.

In Slingshot, Cochrane is ordered to recover a mysterious document stolen by a Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SRV) traitor working for a former high-ranking East German Stasi officer. The officer, years before, had instigated a secret pact between Russian and U.S. generals. The agreement stipulated that should it be broken, an assassin would immediately be set loose after an unknown target.

The SRV has sent their own version of Cochrane, a cold-blooded, brilliant operative, to retrieve the document, pitting spycatcher against spycatcher.

Slingshot, with its cat-and-mouse espionage, brutal action, and complex protagonist, is a must-read for fans of Robert Ludlum and Lee Child.

Mathew Dunn continues to create great scenarios (possibly based on personal experience). Slingshot is an example of his style and it closes with a surprise ending that was unexpected.

"Scouring the European underworld for an important document that has fallen into the wrong hands, special agent Will Cochrane, the CIA's deadliest field officer, must face two adversaries - a former high-ranking East German Stasi officer and a rogue operative whose skills rival his own."

It takes awhile before the significance of SLINGSHOT comes into play. A bit convoluted. But once the importance/history is shared - the book becomes more fun.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because roughmen stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.

Rules are much more fun when they're broken.
