Stella Rimington joined the Security Service (MI5) in 1968. During her career she worked in all the main fields of the Service: counter-subversion, counter-espionage and counter-terrorism. She was appointed Director General in 1992, the first woman to hold the post. She has written her autobiography and three Liz Carlyle novels. She lives in London and Norfolk.
'For a pacey 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. Everything rattles along, taking in London, Belfast, Paris and a Mediterranean island ... a guilty pleasure is the ongoing undercurrent of romance, and it's hard not to wonder whether Carlyle will get her man out of office hours as well as in them' Independent. 'Another fast, action-packed thriller form the former head of MI5 ... the quality of her writing is still very high and you know that you are going to have a very exciting read with her entertaining stories ... the author did work for MI5 in Northern Ireland during her career and it adds an authenticity which is hard to ignore.'
