Publisher's Summary

MI5 Intelligence Officer Liz Carlyle has received alarming intelligence from a source in Syria. A Middle East peace conference is planned to take place at Gleneagles in Scotland, and the Syrians have learned that two individuals are mounting an operation to disrupt the conference in a spectacular way, laying the blame at Syria's door.

As the conference deadline draws ever closer, Liz discovers that the threat is far greater than she or anyone else could have imagined. But so many questions are still to be answered. Are they working together? Who is controlling them? Or is this intelligence a carefully laid trail of misinformation?

It is Liz's job to find out.

Credible and gives you an understanding in how the agencies of the UK and other countries actually work. Good story.

Dead Line

It was an interesting book filled with the sort of adventure expected from MI5, etc. However, thought it could have been a little longer with a few more twists and action.
