With her debut novel,At Risk, Stella Rimington established herself as a top-notch thriller writer, and introduced us to Liz Carlye-a smart, impassioned MI5 intelligence officer whose talents and ambitions are counterbalanced by an abiding awareness of her job's moral complexities. In Secret Asset, we are plunged back into her high-stakes, high-tension world. Liz Carlyle, the quick, passionate intelligence officer of Britain’s MI5, returns to defuse a terrorist plot in this high-stakes, high-tension tale of international espionage. 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 Liz's instincts as well: he immediately puts a surveillance operation into place. When it appears a “secret asset”—a sleeper spy—has infiltrated British Intelligence, the Director of Counter-Terrorism assigns Liz Carlyle to dig up the mole. The spy, possibly a former IRA operative now working with British-born Al Qaeda sympathizers, has one thing on his (or her?) mind: total devastation. With a major attack looming, Liz must trust her instincts and move fast. So Liz is surprised when Wetherby suddenly takes her off the case. And she's shocked to hear why: Wetherby has received a tip-off that a mole a secret asset has 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 it's 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. ------------------------------------------------------ KIRKUS REVIEW What’s worse than the threat of terrorist violence on English soil? The possibility that the brains behind the plot is a mole who’s infiltrated MI5. In the year since Liz Carlyle (At Risk, 2005) recruited Sohail Din, aka Marzipan, the student who put off law school for a year to work undercover in a North London bookshop has provided her with consistently good information on the shop’s mostly Arab clientele. So she’s especially uneasy when he reports suspicious behavior that may portend a suicide bombing. Can her secret asset’s judgment be trusted? She soon learns to her sorrow that Marzipan is more trustworthy than at least one of her Intelligence colleagues. When two attempts to capture the three likely conspirators both come up empty, it’s obvious that they’ve been tipped off. And the only people who knew of both attempts are the Counter-Terrorist elect of MI5 and MI6. Another informant reveals the presence of an Oxford-educated sleeper in Intelligence recruited by a dying IRA agent 15 years ago but never activated. Appointed to root out the sleeper before he awakens, Liz begins by asking which of the possible turncoats attended Oxford. When that question reduces the number of suspects to five—Home Office liaison Patrick Dobson, head of bugging and burgling Michael Binding, globe-trotting investigator Tom Dartmouth, retired agent Stephen Ogasawara and Liz’s old friend Judith Spratt—she tries to find out what their former teachers can say about them and what connection each one might have to the IRA. All too soon, though, these background questions are upstaged by a much more urgent riddle: Where will the mole’s terrorists strike, and what can Liz and her loyal mates do to head them off? The mixture as before: slow to start, but with whiplash control of momentum that raises your pulse a heartbeat at a time until the climax.
