A story that unfolds as coolly and professionally as a British spy film serves as fine audio fodder. This audiobook carries us into the insider worlds of the British Home Office, MI5, and MI6 through the dealings of Liz Carlyle, a British double agent. One would think the Islamic terrorist card has been overplayed but not in this mature plot, which relies more on character and story than on trends and politics. Kate Reading is equal to the task, matching her pacing precisely to the needs of the story. Prepare to be surprised by this cynical contemporary fiction, written by a former director general of MI5.
