"One lie put the nation at risk. Another might save it." -- on cover.
Harry Bristow: policeman, father, chauffeur, fraud. In 1988 Harry made one mistake: he took a bribe, letting a man he knew as Igor into Britain - and he's regretted it ever since. So when he recognises 'Igor' fifteen years later as his newly-elected MP, he knows he has to come clean. But the MP recognises him too - and Harry fears what he might do next. Peter Robinson, MP: salesman, politician, bachelor, spy. It was easy to get into Britain in 1988 as an illegal, working deep undercover, but the break-up of the Soviet Union cut Robinson off from his homeland. He's inching closer to Britain's levers of power - but now the one man who knows his secret has reappeared. With no way to contact Moscow, he must act fast to preserve his position and reap its rewards - at any cost. Manon Tyler, CIA analyst, has just stepped on a plane to London - with a paper on Russian illegals to read.

Stella Rimington is one of my Favourite Authors and this book is one of her best so far. The story is intertwined from beginning to end with believable content due to her many years at Mi5. A really riveting read.
