Re-inventing the spy story for the 21st century. John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne!
"Dead Spy Running is a rip-roaring race of a read that never lets up until the finishing tape - and a bit beyond." Robert Goddard "As elegant as le Carre and as cynical as the twenty-first century ! exactly what we need from a spy novel now." Lee Child "Smart, classy, and relentlessly gripping, Dead Spy Running grabs the reader and doesn't let go. I couldn't quit turning the pages -- like Daniel Marchant running the London marathon, I couldn't stop." Meg Gardiner "A Jason Bourne sweat-fest with George Smiley's brain" - Daily Telegraph "An elegant, unstoppable front runner of a spy thriller" - The Observer "Picks up more or less where Le Carre left off" - The Guardian "A compelling thriller" - Sunday Times "Its deliciously John Buchan-like hero could be chasing the 39 steps" - Daily Mail "As strong as Bourne, as clever as Bond, but with a voice set for Generation Next, Jon Stock has done the impossible in Daniel Marchant and created THE new spy, a living, breathing human, whose own unpredictability suits perfectly our unpredictable world." Stephen Gaghan, Director of Syriana
