Publisher's Summary

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.

Well written, but disappointing

I’m a huge Mick Herron fan. I’ve read all the books and enjoyed them immensely. However, this one fell pretty flat. His character development is wonderful, as always, but I found some of the themes banal and tedious.
If you’re a fan I think it’s worth a listen just because his writing is extraordinarily clever and thorough. But this book is definitely not in the same league as his other work.
The narration is excellent.

Mindless

Boring, repetative, nothing. A true "who cares" book. Not me. I have enjoyed his "Slough House" stories; it is hard to believe he would put his name to this drivel.
