AT RISK (Espionage-England-Cont) – VG
Rimington, Stella – 1st novel
Knopf, 2004- Hardcover
Intelligence officer gets word from one of her agents that there may be an imminent terrorist threat within England. Now it's her job to find the terrorists, identify their target, and prevent them from succeeding in their mission.
Since the end of the cold war, I'd not found a good contemporary spy novel. This ends the drought. Ms. Rimington was director general of MI5 so she knows whereof she speaks. But, more than that, she writes a fast-paced book with good characters and suspense than keeps you turning the pages but is not over the top. This was one cracking good read.
