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.
"[ Secret Asset has] whiplash control of momentum that raises your pulse a heartbeat at a time until the climax." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Timing Not an Asset
I really liked "At Risk," the first book in the series, but was disappointed in this one. The timing was off; the identity of the asset was plain almost from the beginning, and although some interesting ambiguities emerged, it was s slog to the end. Probably very much like real Intel work.

Complex and riveting
I think I liked this book even better than the first book in the series. It has lots of plots and subplots that eventually, of course, intersect. Muslim extremists. Irish terrorists. A possible mole in MI5... so many plots!
