Reviews

Rimington tells her story with the crisp authority one would expect of James Bond's M ... The story careens along energetically, giving us lots of juicy insider-seeming details along the way * New York Times Book Review * 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 * Just like her heroine Liz, Stella Rimington was a woman in a mainly man's world as the head of MI5 and this lends her novel enormous credibility right through to the nail-biting final -- Joanna Czechowska on Close Call * Woman * This spy story is as authentic as it could be ... Although high drama is tightly limited, there is enough action (and sympathy for targeted agents) to make for a highly satisfying plot * Country Life *
