With her debut novel, At Risk, Stella Rimington introduced us to Liz Carlyle-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 has always been particularly skilled at "assessing people," and trusts her instinct that a terrorist cell is at work at an Islamic bookshop. But when her boss, Charles Wetherby, suddenly takes her off the case, she's shocked to hear why: Wetherby has received a tip-off that a mole is at work in one of the branches of British Intelligence. 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.

Professional reviews

"British intelligence officer Liz Carlyle's return to duty starts off at a fast pace when she's alerted that a terrorist cell is centered around a local bookstore. As evidence of an impending attack unfolds, she's surprised to be taken off the task force and diverted to what appears to be an unrelated search for a mole at the agency. Rosalyn Landor's narration is fast-paced, even, and suspenseful. She draws out the contrast between day-to-day concerns and the high-stakes effort to gather information needed to prevent the attack. She gives away nothing of the ultimate relationships between the characters, thereby enhancing this compelling mystery. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
