Not my usual fare this, but when needs must…. it was one of Val’s books on our Dolpo trek. We had more down time than usual, so I ended up reading this thriller set in the Channel Islands in the closing days of WWII.

Gone Girl-style thriller, with a London commuter theme. Speedy read.

Espionage, 21st century style, with MI5 agent Liz Carlyle coping with the demands of a personal as well as a professional life, as the British and American security services investigate an unidentified security threat to a conference of high profile politicians.
I want to see more of Peggy – she seems to have greater success than Liz at having a personal life. I found Deadline‘s romance subplot and the unsubtle ‘clearing the decks’ ending rather disappointing.
