PART 2 of 3

John Hutchinson VJ BooksAgain, in 2011 I read yet another debut book by a British author, SPYCATCHER by Matthew Dunn.  Dunn’s experience in the British Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6, gives him the perspective of an insider.  We are introduced to Will Cochrane, the CIA’s and MI6′s most prized asset … and their deadliest weapon. Cochrane has never been outplayed … so far.

Will Cochrane reappears in Sentinel (2012), Slingshot (2013), Counter Spy (short story) (2014), Dark Spies (2014), and in Spy Trade (short story) (2015).

The Spy House by Matthew DunnIn his latest thriller, THE SPY HOUSE, Dunn employs Cochrane, the “one-man weapon of mass destruction,” to solve what really happened when the Israeli ambassador to France is assassinated in Paris. With Israel planning a massive strike against presumed perpetrator Hamas, France, the UK, and the United States assemble a team of intelligence agents to determine what really happened. Then all four agents are found dead.  Can Cochrane solve everything, and stop the situation from escalating?

THE SPY HOUSE is another edge-of-your-seat page-turner, an espionage novel that promises more from a writer who clearly knows his stuff!
