Publisher's Summary

Geneva, 2012. When a Russian intelligence officer approaches MI5 with vital information about the imminent cyber-sabotage of an Anglo-American Defence programme, he refuses to talk to anyone but Liz Carlyle. But who is he, and what is his connection to the British agent?

At a tracking station in Nevada, US Navy officers watch in horror as one of their unmanned drones plummets out of the sky. Is this a Russian plot to disable the West’s defences? Or is the threat coming from elsewhere? Liz and her team hunt for a mole inside the MOD in a race against time to stop the Cold War heating up once again...

Critic Reviews

" ... a must-read for fans of contemporary spy fiction" ( Publishers Weekly)
'Rimington's best work demonstrates a flair for narrative, with a sense of authenticity and an insider's grasp on the pressing issues of the day' ( Washington Post)
'Liz Carlyle is an MI5 agent with the traditional thriller-heroine mix of dysfunctional personal life and steely ambition' ( Daily Telegraph)
'For a pacy page-turner, she's a safe bet ... Rimington is particularly strong in her accounts of procedure, unsurprisingly, given her past role as Head of MI5' ( Independent)

A great listen

I read some of the other Poor reviews and have to say I don’t entirely agree with the comments. The way the narrator is portrayed by some is as if she has asthma and a 1970s comedian approach to accidents. I find these comments erroneous.

This Liz Carlisle story had a more gripping plot and while some of the twists were a little predictable the book was still well written. I listen To books While I am detailing cars. This actual book took my mind off a couple of days of mundane polishing and thanks to Liz Carlisle this car now looks amazing!

Best yet in the series

Resonates a ‘sixties’ Cold War atmosphere. Fast pace plots with believable locations and excellent narration

Another spy story

Clearly written by an authority though I found the denouement a bit far fetched. Difficult to put it down, though - I'll listen again.

Disappointing

Not what I'd hoped for from someone who'd been on the 'inside'. Rather more of a more grown up Mallory Towers type of read, somewhat to do with the way it was read. Definitely not John le Carre.

A gripping read

A very believable book which kept me intrigued up to the end. It is my first Stella Rimmigton & I look forward to hearing more by her

A tolerable read

This is my first book by Stella Rimington, and it didn't really live up to my expectations. I quite liked the main characters, but the action and the plot were rather mundane. Idon't think that I would bother to buy another by this author.
