A new cold war is coming, and Liz Carlyle is about to find herself on very thin ice. Still reeling from the loss of the man she loved in a botched antiterrorist operation in Paris, Carlyle has been posted to MI5's counter-espionage desk, where her bosses hope the relative quiet might give her the chance to find her feet again.

However, they hadn't counted on the aftershocks of Russia's incursions into Crimea and President Putin's determination to silence those who would oppose him, wherever they may be living in the world. As a result, Liz soon finds herself on the hunt for a Russian spy on British soil--a spy whose intentions are unknown, and whose presence is a threat not only to Russian dissidents living in England but also to the security of the nation itself. And with MI5 and MI6 coming under painful public scrutiny in the post-Edward Snowden world, for Liz and her team, security is something that is beginning to feel increasingly remote.

Pacy, gripping and drawn from her own experience, Stella Rimington's latest Liz Carlyle thriller brings the new cold war compellingly to life.

Characters already met are a little older and a little wiser and even more likeable. Not everyone is suited for a life in the Secret Service.

Two Illegals target a new MI6 employee and Liz Carlyle’s colleague Peggy’s boyfriend Tim. One of the best! Seems like something that could be happening right now.

I disagree with the person who thinks this book is a waste of trees. I have read all of her books, but have found some to be a little slow. her development of Liz, her main character, has improved as the series has progressed. I thought this book was her best so far because it moved faster and wasn't a typical plot or a predictable one. The characters were also more likeable.

What a lame book. How does this kind of material get into a library system ? I had read a review , but the book certainly doesn't match the hype. Maybe I should pay closer attention
to what the reviewer is actually saying. A waste of natural resources (trees).
