For Liz Carlyle, MI5, this report marks the start of an operation that will test her as no other has. Time is of the essence in this desperate search and it becomes clear that Liz's intuitive skills and her ability to get inside her enemy's head will offer the only hope of averting disaster, even as her own life is put into jeopardy.

"Rimington speaks smartly about workplace issues while ratcheting the tension high in her authoritative debut thriller....It doesn't get more exciting than this." (Publishers Weekly)
Only three of the six (soon to be seven) Rimington thrillers are on audible. I can't wait til they are all recorded. Rimington, former director general of MI-5--Britain's CIA--writes realistic and modern spy thrillers that are the best I've ever read.
I love thrillers, mysteries and historical novels. I do most of m listening whilst driving - the car, the ride-on mower, the tractor ...
Rimington's experience as top "spook" makes this a gripping, if a bit disjointed story. It's a bit slow to get going but gathers pace to a thrilling and unexpected conclusion.
My greatest disappointment was to find that Jennifer McMahon does not narrate Stella's other works - in fact she is listed as narrator for only two other books. McMahon's narration is delightful and her characterisation excellent - quite the best I've heard. Please Audible, give us more Jennifer McMahon!
