  • Carolyn L. (Summerville, SC)
    This book held my attention and moved along quickly. There could have been more character development, but it probably would have helped if I had read the first novel, Spycatcher, beforehand (and I intend to read it). All of the Russian names and places, as well as the acronyms, made it a little hard to follow at times, but on the whole, I thought it was a good thriller.
  • Les G. (Fort Collins, CO)
    Good, classic spy novel
    Sentinel: A Spycatcher Novel by Matthew Dunn is the second novel in the Spycatcher series. Sentinel is a very fun cat vs. mouse (or more accurately cat vs. cat) thriller involving spies in the former Soviet Union. This book has the feel of a classic James Bond novel with an incredibly talented and resourceful hero battling a nearly unstoppable opponent. There's plenty of action to keep the reader interested. Recommended for those who enjoy a good, straight-forward spy novel.
  • Alyce T. (San Antonio, TX)
    Matthew Dunn wrote a very interesting spy novel. It kept me reading almost non-stop. He is very very knowledgeable in his field but I wasn't. I did not read the glossary until I finished the book. It would have been helpful if it was in the beginning and maybe grouped by country. I think that would make it easier to follow. Other than my lack of knowledge, I really enjoyed the book. It had twists and turns that came as suprises. I would recommend this book to fellow readers.
  • Gary R. (Bolingbrook, IL)
    The spy game
    An enjoyable read,obviously written by an author who knows what he's writing paced,gritty and scary.believable characters,and all to believable premise involving a rogue military faction and a deep cover agent,sentinel,and the man sent to find him and stop the threat! The cold war isn't over,it's just started,read it!
  • Freya H. (Phoenix, AZ)
    Sentinel was a good book, but nothing special. When I read a spy novel, I'm always looking for something that makes it unique. Didn't find it here. The cold and snowy weather throughout, though, now that will have the reader heading for a warm blanket!
  • Evie L. (EauClaire, wi)
    The Sentinel by Matthew Dunn
    I always enjoy spy stories and would rate this one as good.. the ending was a surprise to me, never saw that coming! Well written but not the best I have read in that genre.
  • Margaret B. (Pompano Beach, FL)
    Sentinel by Matthew Dunn
    CIA recevies a message that an undercover agent has betrayed them and undercover agent is sent to find that person. Everyone seems to know where to find help and who to trust. It tells about the rough life an undercover agent really has. It's a good story to ponder how many people help our country and are never known.
