Breaking Cover by Stella Rimington (August 2016)

Back in London after a gruelling operation in Paris, Liz Carlyle has been posted to MI5's counter-espionage desk.  British relations with Russia are tense in the wake of Putin's incursions into the Ukraine.  Discovering that an elusive Russian spy has entered the UK, Liz needs to track him down before he completes his fatal mission - and plunges Britian back into a Cold War.  Meanwhile, following the revelations of Edward Snowden, the intelligence services are in the spotlight.  MI6 hires Jasminder Kapoor, a controversial civil rights lawyer, to explain the issues around privacy and security to the public.  But in this new world of shadowy motives, Jasminder must be careful about whom she trusts...

Gripping, tense and drawn from her own experience as Head of MI5, Stella Rimington's latest thriller brings the new Cold War vividly to life.
