A LIZ CARLYLE INVESTIGATION `Rimington tells her story with the crisp authority one would expect of James Bond's M' New York Times Book Review Recovering from a gruelling terrorist investigation, Liz Carlyle has been posted to MI5's counter-espionage desk. Her bosses hope the change of scene will give her some breathing space, but they haven't counted on Putin's increased aggression towards the West. Soon Liz is on the hunt for a Russian spy who threatens to plunge Britain back into the fraught days of the Cold War. Meanwhile, MI6 has hired Jasminder Kapoor, a controversial young civil rights lawyer, to explain issues of privacy and security to the public. But in this world of shadowy motives and secret identities, Jasminder must be extra-careful about whom she can trust ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
She bids to join the ranks of such secret-agent authors as Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene and John le Carre * Wall Street Journal *
A wealth of persuasive detail, obviously drawn from first-hand experience * Marie Claire *
This is something rare: the spy novel that prizes authenticity over fabrication that is true to the character and spirit of intelligence work * Mail on Sunday *
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 *
Faster than Le Carre, she creates the same sense of real characters struggling with real problems * John Sandford *
Liz Carlyle is an MI5 agent with the traditional thriller-heroine mix of dysfunctional personal life and steely ambition * Daily Telegraph *
Just like her heroine Liz, Stella Rimington was a woman in a mainly man's world as the head of MI5 and this lends her novel enormous credibility right through to the nail-biting final -- Joanna Czechowska on Close Call * Woman *
This spy story is as authentic as it could be ... Although high drama is tightly limited, there is enough action (and sympathy for targeted agents) to make for a highly satisfying plot * Country Life *
