Written by the former head of Britain's MI5. A spy thriller, not on the level of LeCarre or Furst, but well written and well plotted. I'll definitely read her next book.

Tight, spare, writing that holds your attention. The main character, Liz, is professional, focused, and complex enough to be interesting. Unlike many in this genre, there is not a lot of excess background story, or philosophizing. Great Read.

The author was the former head of British Intelligence -- Judy Dench used her as her inspiration for the character "M" in recent James Bond movies. I read this book after hearing an interview of Ms. Rimington on Public Radio. The book is a great thriller and you know that it is written by someone who really knows the subject at hand. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

Fabulous spy novel written by the former head of M15 herself. I loved Liz. I loved that she was flawed, yet knew herself and knew her job. The mystery was fantastic. I didn't see the twist coming at the end! I highly recommend this spy series to anyone who loves a good thriller.
