Praise for Stella Rimington * . * Rimington provides lots of detail of intelligence work used to counter today's terrorists that seem real - and intriguing * Financial Times * This spy story is as authentic as it could be ... Highly satisfying * Country Life * Damn good * Daily Telegraph * Liz Carlyle remains one of the most interesting characters in the male-dominated world of the spy thriller * Daily Express * She bids to join the ranks of such secret-agent authors as Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene and John le Carre * Wall Street Journal * This is something rare: the spy novel that prizes authenticity over fabrication, that is true to the character and spirit of intelligence work * Mail on Sunday * Faster than le Carre, she creates the same sense of real characters struggling with real problems * John Sandford *
