Publisher Description

From the former head of MI5 and bestselling author Stella Rimington comes the heart-stopping second novel featuring MI5 Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle.

When Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle learns from one of her agents that suspicious meetings are taking place at an Islamic bookshop, she trusts her instinct that a terrorist cell is at work. Her boss, Charles Wetherby, immediately puts a surveillance operation into place. An attack seems imminent.

So Liz is surprised when Wetherby suddenly takes her off the case. And she’s shocked to hear the reason why: he has received a tip-off that a mole is at work inside British Intelligence. If true, then the potential damage to the Service itself could be immeasurable. Now, as her colleagues scramble to avert a terrorist strike, Liz must find out who the mole is, and what their intentions are, before it is too late.

Secret Asset

Good yarn & quite plausible in today's chaotic situation. My only criticism is too many characters which means I have to back track to refresh.

Thank you again

Thoroughly enjoyed this wide-ranging and fascinating insight into the human cost to those that choose to work for their country. Plenty of well constructed tension, plenty of real-life drama and overall a good read.
