Product Details


“Rimington’s plot, as one should expect from a former head of MI5, bristles with subterfuge and splices in allusions to Litvinenko’s poisoning to give Illegal Action a contemporary feel. . . . Carlyle, in her third outing, has depth and tenacity.”—The Financial Times“A former director general of MI5 in the ‘90s, Rimington fills her brainy page-turner with authentic details.” —Entertainment Weekly“Rimington fashions an exciting final confrontation to her story.” —The Washington Post“The psychological curiosity and attention to detail that has made Rimington a top spy also distinguishes her as an author.”—People“An ideal beach read for the upcoming vacation season. . . . Elements of the old-fashioned spy novel–sudden twists and characters with hidden agendas–combine with James Patterson’s secret to success.”—Booklist
