The First Of A Trilogy Of Spy Thrillers!


This is a 'heads up'... To those of you that enjoy spy thrillers.  Which would include my wife Tina and myself, especially when they are transformed later into films, like James Bond, which Tina has seen all of them!

Well, this upcoming novel isn't a film, (yet), but it does have a book trailer online for you to view to give you an idea of what's ahead for this novel!

I recently became Facebook Friends with the author Jeremy Duns, who wrote me the following:  

"I just wanted to share the news that Free Agent will be available as an audio book. In the UK, it will be released by Oakhill Publishing and in the US by Recorded Books - both versions will be unabridged. There will also be a large-print edition in the UK, published by FA Thorpe.

Finally, I've just received a wonderful jacket quote from Gayle Lynds, the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster, The Coil and Masquerade. The latter was listed by Publishers Weekly as one of the top 15 spy novels of all time. Here's her quote:

'Utterly riveting, Free Agent is an international espionage thriller par excellence. Lyrical prose, unforgettable characters, and a fascinating plot that doesn't release the panting reader until the last page makes this spy ride unforgettable. Free Agent is the beginning of a classic series that's sure to be a huge hit.'

Free Agent will be published in the UK on May 5 and the US on June 25. But you can already place your order at Amazon, Target, Borders and numerous other places online. If you haven't yet, please do!"

Well, I took a look at the links that Jeremy provided, and decided to give you a 'heads up' on this upcoming book.

Like those of you that will take the time to look at the excerpts, I didn't get to read the whole novel, but it looks interesting enough for me to want to blog about it.

It is Not a Spy Thriller Graphic Novel, (like the online graphic novel 'The FAT Man' I've blogged about before), but it is in a similar genre without the illustrations.

Here is a little back of background on the novel:

In July 1945, MI6 agent Paul Dark took part in a clandestine mission to hunt down and execute Nazi war criminals. He will discover that everything he understood about that mission, about its consequences, and about the woman he once loved, has been built on false foundations.

Now it's 1969, and a KGB colonel has walked into the British High Commission in Lagos, Nigeria, and announced he wants to defect. His credentials as a defector are good: he has information indicating that there is yet another double agent within MI6, which would be a devastating blow to an organization still coming to terms with its betrayal by Kim Philby and the rest of the Cambridge Ring.

Dark has largely been above suspicion during MI6's years of self-recrimination - but this time he's in the frame. For some it would be flight or fight time. But when your arrest may be only moments away, sometimes the only option is flight AND flight... whatever the consequences.

For those of you that are on Facebook, you can view these links:

The 'Free Agent by Jeremy Duns' Group Page is at:




If you are not on Facebook, then the entire first chapter of the novel is also posted online at Simon & Schuster's site:


Also, Jeremy has more information about himself at his own personal web site at:


There you will find a previously unpublished article of his titled 'Beyond Bond' - A look at some forgotten spy thrillers. Also there is the fact that Jeremy knows his stuff, he also wrote the following article:  'Hunting the Nazis' - The True Story of the Belgian SAS'.

Like I wrote at the beginning of this blog post, this looks a good novel to check out when the book is published first in the UK, and then in the States.

(Please Note: A complimentary hard copy for this mention / review was not provided by the creator as it is in online format only at this time.)
