SPYCATCHER by Matthew Dunn

Spycatcher: A Novel

Spycatcher: A Novel

Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: August 1st 2011 by William Morrow

Will Cochrane is HOT! This  main character is an MI6 agent and he's on a mission to kill a very powerful and elusive bad guy.  Will is an expert at his job.  He is emotionally scarred.  He doesn't play by the rules.  He has a good heart (for a man that kills for a living).  No obstacle is too much for him.  He always gets his man!  What more could you ask for in a main character?  All the women will want him and all the men will wish they could be him!

The plot of this book is a bit slow to start off, but it picks up speed and doesn't stop until the very last page.  It has some unpredictable twists and turns, with lots of ruthlessness, carnage and action along the way.  Will Cochrane even finds the time for a little romance! 

While comparisons to James Bond are inevitable, I really don't think they are warranted.  James Bond is one dimensional and unrealistic next to Will Cochrane. 

As you come to the end of the novel, you get the feeling that there is still so much you don't know about Will.  And you will want to know!  The author, Matthew Dunn, has created a character that comes alive on the pages of this book and leaves you wanting more.

Matthew Dunn is lauded as a former MI6 agent.  This gives the novel credibility and a feeling authenticity.  Dunn's second career as an author is off to a great start.  I am already craving more from him.  I am also pretty sure that he is as hot as Will Cochrane!

Thanks to William Morrow publishers for allowing me an opportunity to read and review this novel.
