Publisher's Summary

In 2012, in a Middle Eastern souk, CIA agent Miles Brookhaven was attacked. He was infiltrating rebel groups in the area and no one was certain if his cover had been blown or if the act was just an arbitrary attack.
Now, Liz Carlyle and her Counter Terrorism unit in MI5 have been charged with the task of watching the international under-the-counter arms trade and British Intelligence forces have become increasingly concerned that extremist Al-Qaeda jihadis are building their power base ready to launch another attack. As the pressure mounts, Liz and her team must intercept illegal weapons before they get into the wrong hands.


What the Critics Say

"She bids to join the ranks of such secret-agent authors as Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene and John le Carré" (Wall Street Journal)
"A wealth of persuasive detail, obviously drawn from first-hand experience" (Marie Claire)
"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)
"Liz Carlyle remains one of the most interesting characters in the male-dominated world of the spy thriller" (Daily Express)
"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)

Narrator aghhhhh

Nice gentle spook story, but I'm afraid all but ruined by the narrator. She doesn't read well and her voices were so bad it was irritating and rather spoilt the book
