With her debut novel, At Risk, Stella Rimington established herself as a top-notch thriller writer, and introduced us to Liz Carlylea smart, impassioned MI5 intelligence officer whose talents and ambitions are counterbalanced by an abiding awareness of her jobs moral complexities. In Secret Asset, we are plunged back into her high-stakes, high-tension world.

Liz has always been particularly skilled at assessing people, and when one of her agents reports suspicious meetings taking place at an Islamic bookshop, she trusts her instinct that a terrorist cell is at work. Her boss, Charles Wetherby, Director of Counter-Terrorism, knows to trust Lizs instincts as well: he immediately puts a surveillance operation into place.

So Liz is surprised when Wetherby suddenly takes her off the case. And shes shocked to hear why: Wetherby has received a tip-off that a molea secret assethas been planted in one of the branches of British Intelligence. If this is true, the potential damage to the Service is immeasurable. As her colleagues work to avert an impending terrorist strike, Liz is charged with the momentous task of uncovering and exposing the mole before its too late.

As she did in At Risk, Stella Rimington once again brings all her experience as the first woman Director General of MI5 to bear in a heart-stopping thriller that takes us deep into a wilderness of mirrors where nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted.
