Matthew Dunn (William Morrow, $25.99)
Dunn, the book’s jacket copy asserts, is a former MI6 operative. It shows. The knowledge of the “everyday” practice of spycraft all but oozes out of the binding, especially in one long chapter where a target is being trailed through Moscow.
That said, in this chapter and elsewhere in the novel, there are a few notable factual slips regarding Moscow geography and transport. Hopefully these were corrected in the final version, as this review is based on an uncorrected proof.
