Read an Excerpt. Dead Line. MI5 Officer Liz Carlyle returns in a powerfully suspenseful, psychologically riveting thriller to diffuse a terrorist plot. As plans get under way for a Middle East peace conference at the Gleneagles resort in Scotland, MI5 Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle is summoned to a meeting with her boss, who has just received an alarming tip: As the conference deadline draws closer, Liz keeps running into one dead end after another, and she begins to understand that the threat is far greater than she could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly After four months' convalescent leave, MI5 spy Liz Carlyle, returning from her debut in Rimington's At Risk, confers with her agent Marzipan, an Islamic bookshop clerk who has discovered a probable terror plot in the making. With the aid of fresh-faced co-worker Peggy Kinsolving, Liz goes about the task of ferreting out the mole, despite disappointment at being taken off the terror case, which she can't quite let go—with, it turns out, good reason.
Much is made of the authenticity of Rimington's tradecraft she was the first female head of MI5 in real life , and rightly so. But lots of writers get the details right, and for many readers, Rimington's ratio of action to personal detail will seem skewed: Still, those interested in old school British intelligence thrillers will find much to like in the smart, enterprising Carlyle.
All rights reserved. Rimington, the former head of Britain's MI5, follows up her spy-novel debut, At Risk , 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: Racing against time to expose the traitor before he or she?
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.

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.
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. In the ensuing investigation, she uncovers suppressed old relationships to the IRA and suspicious circumstances involving several of her colleagues.
Eventually no surprise!
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.
