    DescriptionThe international arms trade is about to become a national problem...In 2012, in a Middle Eastern souk, CIA agent Miles Brookhaven was attacked. At the time he was infiltrating rebel groups in the area. No one was certain if his cover had been blown or if the act was just an arbitrary attack on Westerners. Months later, the incident remains a mystery. Now, Liz Carlyle and her Counter Terrorism unit in MI5 have been charged with the task of watching the international under-the-counter arms trade. With the Arabic region in such a volatile state, the British Intelligence forces have become increasing concerned that extremist Al-Qaeda jihadis are building their power base ready to launch another attack. As the pressure mounts, Liz and her team must intercept illegal weapons before they get into the wrong hands. When MI5 learns that the source of the arms deals is located in Western Europe, Liz finds herself on a manhunt that leads her to Paris, to Berlin and into her own long-forgotten past. A past buried so deep that she thought it would never resurface ...

    Review quote
    She bids to join the ranks of such secret-agent authors as Somerset Maugham, Graham Greene and John le Carr Wall Street Journal A wealth of persuasive detail, obviously drawn from first-hand experience Marie Claire 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 For a pacy page-turner, she's a safe bet ... Rimington is particularly strong in her accounts of procedure, unsurprisingly, given her past role as Head of MI5 Independent Faster than Le Carr , she creates the same sense of real characters struggling with real problems John Sandford Liz Carlyle is an MI5 agent with the traditional thriller-heroine mix of dysfunctional personal life and steely ambition Daily Telegraph Rimington's best work demonstrates a flair for narrative, with a sense of authenticity and an insider's grasp on the pressing issues of the day Washington Post Rich with authentic details from Rimington's own life as director general of MI5, this is a must-read for fans of contemporary spy fiction Publishers Weekly Rimington is a fine storyteller who creates instantly believable characters living in an extraordinary world Bella Liz Carlyle remains one of the most interesting characters in the male-dominated world of the spy thriller Daily Express
