What the Critics Say

" ... 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)

    You would expect substantially more technical accuracy from someone with her background knowledge.

    It filled in a long journey across France!


    What does Julia Barrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I think this needed a make narrator.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Audiobook reader untutored"
    Would you try another book written by Stella Rimington or narrated by Julia Barrie?

    Julia Barrie has obviously watch too much hello hello!Her attempt at animating this tale and her inadequate French accent spoil this audiobook.Also, I would have hoped that Stella Rimington Would have been far more articulate In Her employment of,And use of English vocabulary in her descriptions.The author must be well educated but there is no demonstration of a command of descriptive Adjectives which might serve to illuminate a rather dull plot


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Difficult to say


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Barrie?

    Anybody more competent


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    No
