    Almost flawless reading of an almost flawless book

    Traditionally female narrators have been disliked by audio book fans. Maggie Mash should put an end to that. She is almost flawless. The one tiny nigg..Show More »

    A bit let down

    When pirates attack a cargo ship off the Somalian coast and one of them is found to be a British-born Pakistani, MI5 Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle is brought in to establish how and why a young British Muslim could go missing from his family in Birmingham and end up on board a pirate skiff in the Indian Ocean, armed with a Kalashnikov. After an undercover operative connected to the case turns up dead in a shipping office in Athens it looks like piracy may be the least of the Service's problems...

    Disappointing

    The writing is lazy. Characters are shallow and undeveloped, and plot developments are telegraphed miles in advance, as well as not being very plausib..Show More »

    Geneva, 2012. When a Russian intelligence officer approaches MI5 with vital information about the imminent cyber-sabotage of an Anglo-American Defence programme, he refuses to talk to anyone but Liz Carlyle. But who is he, and what is his connection to the British agent? At a tracking station in Nevada, US Navy officers watch in horror as one of their unmanned drones plummets out of the sky. Is this a Russian plot to disable the West's defences? Or is the threat coming from elsewhere?

    Thin plot and implausible scenarios

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

    In 2012, in a Middle Eastern souk, CIA agent Miles Brookhaven was attacked. He was infiltrating rebel groups in the area and no one was certain if his cover had been blown or if the act was just an arbitrary attack. Now, Liz Carlyle and her Counter Terrorism unit in MI5 have been charged with the task of watching the international under-the-counter arms trade and British Intelligence forces have become increasingly concerned that extremist Al-Qaeda jihadis are building their power base ready to launch another attack.

    Very current story

    Another great book from Stella Rimington wonderfully read as always can't wait for the next book.
    Very good listen x

    Following a gruelling operation in Paris, Liz Carlyle's bosses post her to MI5's counter-espionage desk, but they haven't counted on the fallout from Putin's incursions into the Ukraine. Liz needs to track down a Russian spy who has entered the UK before he completes his fatal mission. Meanwhile, the intelligence services are in the spotlight. In response to the debate raging around privacy and security, they hire Jasminder Kapoor, a controversial civil rights lawyer, to explain the issues to the public.
