Former M16-CIA operative Will Cochrane returns for another electrifying adventure in this fifth Spycatcher novel. Having been dumped by both the British and Americans, Cochrane is now a free agent, but not for long.

The Israeli Ambassador to France has been assassinated in Paris and if the killers, reputedly Hamas operatives, are not apprehended there is a very good chance an invasion of Gaza, the Left Bank and Lebanon by Israel will ignite a world war.

When four agents charged with determining who was responsible for the ambassador's death are gunned down in a safe house, the situation becomes even more precarious. It appears only one person can handle this assignment. Cochrane gets the nod and now it becomes a race to avert an international disaster as the superspy delves into his bag of tricks to determine who is behind the plot to begin a deadly, world-changing conflict.

Having spent five years in the British Secret Intelligence Service as a field operative, Matthew Dunn brings the type of authenticity to his fiction not usually found in this genre. His novels have generated a lot of interest and a wide audience of espionage aficionados who demand plausible plots and authentic characters.
