Product description

Review

"Was she right to publish? Most certainly. If we are to have a mature attitude to our intelligence services, we need this kind of inside account - it is vital in stripping away mystique and building understanding" (Daily Telegraph)

"Stella Rimington deserves our thanks for resisting the bullying of the cabinet office and many of her colleagues and associates in Whitehall, and pushing on to publication" (New Statesman)

"She writes in a refreshingly self-deprecating style of juggling the roles of single parent and chief "spook"" (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description

'The story of MI5's transformation... is fascinating. So, too is Rimington's account of her rise in what was verydefinitely a man's world' Guardian
