The landscape of terror is changing and Liz Carlyle must learn to navigate it before it's too late

Baker & Taylor
When a Russian intelligence officer insists on speaking to no one but her about cyber sabotage that has brought down a U.S. communications satellite, MI5 agent Liz Carlyle learns of a plot to hack into the West's military and begins a race against time to stop a mole who would reignite the Cold War. 15,000 first printing.

Bloomsbury USA
At a tracking station in Virginia, U.S. Navy officers watch in horror as one of their communications satellites plummets into the Indian Ocean and panic spreads through the British and American intelligence services.

When a Russian intelligence officer approaches MI5 with vital information about the cyber sabotage, he refuses to talk to anyone but Liz Carlyle. But who is he, and how is he connected to Liz?

Is this a Russian plot to disable the West's defenses? Or is the threat coming from elsewhere? As Liz and her team search for a mole inside the Ministry of Defense, the trail takes them from Geneva, to Marseilles, and to Korea in a race against time to stop the Cold War from heating up.

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.
