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 *
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 *
Rich with authentic details from Rimington's own life as director general of MI5, this is a must-read for fans of contemporary spy fiction * Publishers Weekly *
