The prestigious MI6 organization allows one man, and only one man, to go through a highly specialized program. If he is not dead at the end of it, he holds the title of “Spartan.” No one else is allowed into the program while the current Spartan lives. Spartan is MI6’s most valuable, volatile and secret asset. Will Cochrane is Spartan.

This thriller introduces Will Cochrane, a vengeance seeking operative who in rare moments reveals pieces of his childhood that explain the hardened man he has become as well as his desire for revenge against the world’s most wanted international terrorist mastermind.

The author draws to a great extent on his personal perspective and experience to weave a tapestry with threads of an international impact, political intrigue, espionage and personal drive. The characters are human and Dunn shows their flaws, especially when decisions are made based on emotion. While each character is driven to complete their portion of the mission, each has a vulnerability that can be, and often is, exploited. Our hero has a one-man, unpredictable, machine who gets the job done.
