Liz Carlyle gets involved helping a Russian man she knew briefly years ago in college in a mystery that ends up striking close to home. Complicated connections in this one that stretched my credibility a little, although I won’t stop reading this series!

Not up to her usual standard. I missed the witty byplay between Liz Carlyle & her colleagues. The plot dragged a bit in spots, too.

"Author Stella Rimington, former director general of Britain's MI5 counter-intelligence agency, is back with a 7th entry in the series starring M15 agent Liz Carlyle, a woman in a career dominated by men. When a Russian insists on speaking to no one but her about imminent cyber sabotage against an Anglo-American defense program, she learns of a plot that threatens to reignite the Cold War. While these spy thrillers lack the gizmos and gadgets of a James Bond film, Rimington's knowledge of how espionage works is evident in all her novels, and this one is no exception."

Another page turner of a novel from Stella Rimington. This one didn't have so much 'thinking' from the main character Liz Carlyle so as a reader you weren't really sure where she was going next. The storyline developed her relationship with Martin - an attainable goal! But a fast paced storyline that did keep me as a reader wondering how all the interconnecting story threads were going to be tied together.
