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 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A suspenseful look at the reality of work in counter-intelligence 16. Januar 2017
Von Mal Warwick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sohail Din, a young Pakistani-British man, has postponed entry into law school for a year to serve as an undercover source for MI5. His agent runner, Liz Carlyle, returns from leave to find that Din has reported a visit by a notorious radical Pakistani imam to the Islamist bookstore where he works. There, the sheikh met with three young British men of Pakistani origin who are suspected of radical sympathies.

Suddenly, the inter-agency Counter-Terrorist Committee finds itself with a high-priority case. The Committee links MI5 (the Security Service) with MI6 (Secret Intelligence Service), GCHQ (Britain’s NSA), the Metropolitan Police (Scotland Yard), and the Home Office (Britain’s Justice Department). MI5 takes the lead.

Suspecting an imminent terrorist attack on British soil, MI5 swings into action. As an officer in the counter-espionage department, Liz hopes to become involved in the investigation. But the Director of Counter-Terrorism, Charles Wetherby, pulls her aside for a secret assignment: determine whether one of the men or women working for MI5 is a mole. In the ensuing investigation, she uncovers suppressed old relationships to the IRA and suspicious circumstances involving several of her colleagues. Liz’s journey toward the truth takes her to Oxford University and to Queens University in Dublin as well as to a succession of towns in southern England. Eventually (no surprise!) the two investigations merge, rushing toward a tragic climax.

Secret Asset, like the other novels in the Liz Carlyle series, is a compelling read. In the manner of a police procedural, Rimington paints a detailed picture of the complex way in which a counter-terrorist investigation plays out. Practically no one who writes spy novels can match her for knowledge about the craft.
About the author

She became director in succession of all three branches and became Director General in 1995. She turned to fiction in 2004 at the age of 69. She has since written a total of nine Liz Carlyle novels. Secret Asset was the second.

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 As good as the first 18. Oktober 2015
Von Marcia Diorio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As I expected, I loved this book. In reading some of the other reviews (just now, not before I bought the book), I'd just mention that I think Dame Stella does not intend to emulate James Bond. Instead, she provides us with "stories" that continue to feel to me to be cut very close to some real experiences, and for me, it is very convincing. In having realized who the planted mole was mid-way through the book, I found myself wanting to jump in there and caution her, and Wetherby, whenever that character was around. If she can draw me into the story to that extent, seems to me that she accomplished her goal.
I'll definitely be seeing more of Liz. Can't wait to see where the next one is set - several times I expected Inspector Morse or Inspector Lewis to turn up in this one!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great read 13. Januar 2017
Von M Shilling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I thoroughly enjoyed Secret Asset. It grabbed my interest faster than her first novel. She keeps several different plot lines going at the same time. Putting together the Irish "Troubles" and today's Islamic terrorism was inspired. Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well written moderately suspenseful 6. August 2016
Von Bill Post - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The characters were in general good, the lead character in particular was pleasantly straight forward. It was nice read a book where women have real issues but are not portrayed as neurotic.

Seemed authentic, but could have been more suspenseful. Overall a good read.
