However, as much as I enjoyed the other espionage books, "Spycatcher" surpasses them in one respect: it gives details of tradecraft that are impossible in an account of Kim Philby or Anthony Blunt who, by necessity, had to keep silent about the finer particulars of their work in intelligence (whether Soviet or British).Cited by: Order of Spycatcher Books Spycatcher is a series of spy thriller novels by British novelist Matthew Dunn.

The protagonist of the series, Will Cochrane, is an intelligence agent employed by the CIA and MI6. All he has known since he was young was a world full of complex lies and unholy alliances.

I stumbled upon Oreste Pinto’s work “Spycatcher” in an old used book shop in a quiet park in one of the former Soviet republics.
