From CWA Gold Dagger winner Mick Herron comes a shocking, twisted novel of psychological suspense about one woman's attempt to be better than ordinary Twenty-six-year-old Maggie Barnes is someone you would never look at twice. Living alone in a month-to-month sublet in the huge city of London, with no family but an estranged sister, no boyfriend or partner, and not much in the way of friends, Maggie is just the kind of person who could vanish from the face of the earth without anyone taking notice. Or just the kind of person MI5 needs to infiltrate the establishment and thwart an international plot that puts all of Britain at risk. Now one young woman has the chance to be a hero-if she can think quickly enough to stay alive.

Professional reviews

"The audiobook begins with high tension as the listener follows young, dim-witted Maggie Barnes on her mission to infiltrate her employer's computer system. Maggie has been manipulated by a mysterious gentleman to be a hero and save England by working for MI5. Then the audio takes a sharp turn into a slow-burn psychological thriller. Narrator Steven Crossley portrays the lead male character with arrogance and self-delusion, giving him additional credibility with the different personas he assumes. But having the same deep, gravelly voice conveying the female characters is more of a stretch. There are twists and turns, some obvious, others not, that will keep the patient listener engaged through the denouement. E.Q. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
