Produktbeschreibungen

From Booklist

Rimington, the former head of Britain's MI5, follows up her spy-novel debut, At Risk (2005), with this fast-moving thriller. We rejoin intelligence officer Liz Carlyle as she gets a hot tip that a terrorist cell is operating in London. But before she can begin her investigation, Liz is pulled off the case by her boss, the director of counter terrorism, who blindsides her with a startling revelation: there is a mole in British Intelligence. Racing against time to expose the traitor before he (or she?) can reveal more secrets, Liz realizes that her colleagues' success in busting the new terrorist cell may depend on how fast she can accomplish her mission. Rimington continues to deliver on the promise of spy fiction written not only by a former spy but also by the head of British intelligence. This is a smartly constructed, sharply written thriller that exudes realism and a professional's eye for detail. More surprisingly, Rimington also proves adept at building characters and constructing plots. David Pitt

Pressestimmen

“Fast-moving . . . Rimington continues to deliver on the promise of spy fiction written not only by a former spy but also by the head of British intelligence. This is a smartly constructed, sharply written thriller that exudes realism and a professional’s eye for detail . . . Rimington also proves adept at building characters and constructing plots.”
–David Pitt, Booklist

“Those interested in old school British intelligence thrillers will find much to like in the smart, enterprising Carlyle . . . Much is made of the authenticity of Rimington’s tradecraft (she was the first female head of MI5 in real life), and rightly so.”
Publishers Weekly

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

“The author makes effective use of her professional knowledge . . . The ingenious plot entwines strands of Irish Republican Army leftovers, disaffected spies, and Islamic terrorists . . . Rimington’s sense of place is strong.”
Library Journal

Praise for At Risk:
“This is something very rare: the spy novel that prizes authenticity over fabrication.”
Mail on Sunday

“Tense and terrifying.”
Cosmopolitan

“A cracking good thriller”
–Lynn Barber, Observer

“Intelligent — Undeniably pacy”
Guardian

“Rimington makes adroit use of her expertise as former MI5 chief”
Sunday Times

“The Secret Service background is exceedingly convincing”
Evening Standard

“First class”
–Douglas Hurd, New Statesman

Praise for Stella Rimington’s autobiography Open Secret:
“The story of MI5’s transformation is fascinating. So too is Rimington’s account of her rise in what was very definitely a man’s world.”
Guardian

“She writes in a refreshingly self-deprecating style of juggling the roles of single parent and chief ‘spook’.”
Independent on Sunday

Open Secret is a fascinating account not only of Stella Rimington’s various roles in the evolving Security Services, but also of the strains on a single mother as she struggles to compartmentalize a life that is necessarily unpredictable, stressful and shrouded in secrecy.”
Time Out

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good second book 29. Juli 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
the whole series is very good and this is another installment which doesn't disappoint. It's not as good as the first one but it's still a good read. Liz Carlyle is a realistic character, I will definitely read the other books in the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen As real as it gets. 18. November 2006
Von Guy Pommares - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you like it real, then Stella Rimington is it. Imagine James Bond and his high flying exploits; disregard, and try to visualize the very extreme opposite. An unobtrusive middle class woman commuting to work in a uniform brick coloured world under a leaden grey sky and going over the numbingly dull details of hundreds of insignificant lives. From there she culls tiny little anomalies which would only stick out for an unbelievably fastidious mind. And little by little she pieces together the shadows of a puzzle that may or may not lead to the foiling of a plot to unleash very real violence on some people she doesn't know. Now where her real talent comes in, is that she makes it so real that it becomes absolutely riveting; and much more enjoyable than any sort of glamorous adventure fiction. As a matter of fact, when I closed the book, I went right over to my computer to consult Amazon and see what else she'd written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant page turner/ Beach novel 7. September 2006
Von Sarah Durston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you like spy thrillers you will almost certainaly love this book. As well as trying to stop a terrorist attack, Liz Carlyle must find an IRA mole (who infiltrated MI5, but was never activated.)

The characters are great and the story cracks along at a terrific pace. There are the usual twists and turns, and although I did guess who the mole was about half way through, there was always the chance that I was wrong (!) and it did nothing to spoil my enjoyment of the book.

Rimington also adds in some nice touches. Even characters who are only bit part players are well drawn and we find out small details about their lives and why they were in that place at that time.

If this is the kind of thing you usually enjoy then buy it! Safe houses, surveillance techniques, the inner workings of the terrorist mind, IRA informers.....this book has it all.

4.0 von 5 Sternen four and a half stars 17. August 2007
Von Julia Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the second book by former MI5 head Rimington and it's even better than At Risk. Rimington does excellent secondary and minor characters - the Oxford dons, the varied colleagues, the various civilians all come across crispy with just the right amount of detail to make them memorable and interesting. Once again, Liz is the least clearly drawn character in the book, but this time there are no gaping holes in her day to day life. The settings get more time and space here than in the first book - lovers of London and Oxford will be very very happy -- and the pacing of the plot, which was excellent in At Risk At Risk: A Novel, is truly outstanding: you'll stay up all night. The author combines the best elements of a procedural with the action scenes of a spy thriller.

And that brings me to the one problem. Rimington doesn't end well. In her first novel, she practically threw up her hands and offered the reader an explosive version of "whatever." Here she spends more time and ink, but it is still a weak ending for such a strong narrative.

But it's well worth your time and pocket change: lots of British-isms for Anglophiles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AUDIO Format review 1. November 2007
Von Jessica Teel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If forgetting you are being read to is the sign of a good audiobook narrator, then performer Emma Fielding hits the mark. Her soft voice lets the listener lose themselves in MI5 intelligence officer Liz Carlyle's hunt for an illusive IRA mole inside British Intelligence's counter-terrorism division. Although her voice is lyrical, Fielding doesn't convey the necessary tension and suspense of action sequences such as a car bomb that threatens to detonate in the middle of an Oxford graduation ceremony. Fielding's Irish accents are as believable as her own British speaking voice, but she struggles to sound realistic as other nationalities. Nevertheless, Rimington's mole manages to be more than a one note villain and his enactments of revenge have surprising motivations and unexpected outcomes.
