Matthew Dunn puts his years of experience as a top-level field officer for M16, the British intelligence service, to good use in this thriller. The third installment of Dunn's bestselling Spycatcher series finds Will Cochrane, who doubles as a spy for both the CIA and M16, facing his most treacherous assignment ever.

A document that outlines a clandestine agreement between Russia, Germany and the United States has suddenly gone missing in Europe. The contents of the Slingshot agreement, as it has been dubbed, could lead to genocide if it falls into the wrong hands.

Assigned the task of retrieving the document and neutralizing the traitor who snatched it, Cochrane's search takes him from Poland and Russia to the Black Forest of Germany where he uncovers a doomsday scenario that is truly unimaginable in its scope.

As you would expect, Cochrane will again be up against an agent as talented as he is. A rogue ex-Stasi assassin, Kronos has never failed on a mission and his task is to eliminate anyone who knows the truth about Slingshot. Obviously something is going to have to give here and Cochrane, although evenly matched, knows that under no circumstances can he be bested by this worthy adversary.

Fast paced with plenty of twists and surprises, Slingshot is an ideal read for the beach or while traveling this summer. Once into this tale of intrigue you'll totally forget any flight delays or find those lazy afternoons basking in the sun just melt away.
