Stella Rimington's latest espionage thriller Moscow Sleepers kept me engaged throughout.
Dame Stella Rimington, DCB is a British author and former Director General of MI5, a position she held from 1992 to 1996. She was the first female DG of MI5, and the first DG whose name was publicised on appointment. Wikipedia
I've read one other book by Rimington and was pleased that I enjoyed this one as well. The story begins in Vermont with a dying university professor in a hospice. When a visitor finally arrives, the nurse notifies the FBI, as she has been instructed to do.
From Vermont, to London, to Brussels and Berlin, to a school in rural England--the plot involves the unraveling of the importance of the dying Vermont academic to a conspiracy involving immigrant children and computer hacking. Liz Carlyle is back on the job with MI5.
As a result of Stella Rimington's nearly 30 years of experience with MI5, her plots have a realistic feel. Rimington's work is more concerned with putting together puzzle pieces than the more violent works of other espionage writers. I enjoyed the puzzle and the characters.
