Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Attempting to rebuild her shattered life in the South of France, former MI6 operative Kate Henderson receives an unexpected and most unwelcome visit from an old adversary: the UK prime minister. He has an extraordinary story to tell - and he needs her help.

A Russian agent has come forward with news that the PM has been the victim of the greatest misinformation play in the history of MI6. It's run out of a special KGB unit that exists for one purpose alone: to process the intelligence from 'Agent Dante', a mole right at the heart of MI6 in London.

Against her better judgement, Kate is forced back into the fray in a top-secret, deeply flawed and dangerous investigation. But now she's damaged goods. Her one-time allies no longer trust her. And neither do her enemies.

With the stakes this high, can the truth ever come out? Or is the cost of uncovering it a price that no one, least of all Kate, can afford to pay?

Excellent Trilogy Ending

I had been really looking forward to to the third instalment of this MI6 thriller and Tom Bradby certainly did not disappoint. Please read them in sequence otherwise you will not gain the full benefit of the series. The characterisation, spycraft and plot twists were all satisfying as was the ending. I won't give it away as half the fun is trying to sift the red herrings from the multiple candidates for MI6 super mole. The reading by Juliet Aubrey was first rate and I look forward to Kate Henderson taking on new challenges, maybe in SE Asia...

A gripping journey through the wilderness of mirrors.

A superb finale to the trilogy. I guessed the identity of Dante with a few chapters to go but, as with story’s main character, my self doubt wouldn’t allow me to be certain. A well constructed and finely crafted espionage tale. Very enjoyable.

Excellent

Looked forward to this latest release and pleased to say it is equally good as the two earlier stories. As ever the narration was pitch perfect.

Very satisfying conclusion

Regardless of whether you anticipate the big reveal of Agent Dante, this is an brilliantly gripping yarn.
The third and final instalment moves from the Dordogne to Prague to Moscow with travelogue details fleshing out the action.
It’s quite a low-key serious book that tied up all the ends pleasingly, although perhaps it could’ve done with being lightened with a little more focus on the younger members of SIS.
It’s refreshing to find such a richly drawn cast of characters.
Sometimes the narration was so deep and earthy that I had to raise the treble however, it was a very enjoyable listen.

My favourite spy books by a long way

Really enjoy these books. I even pre-ordered so I got it quickly. Must admit I had cracked this one a while ago, but still enjoyed it playing out. So well written. Great characters and brilliant narration. Well recommended.
