An untraceable cargo. An unknown target. The international arms trade is about to become a national problem. In 2012, in a Middle Eastern souk, CIA agent Miles Brookhaven was attacked. At the time he was infiltrating rebel groups in the area. No one was certain if his cover had been blown or if the act was just an arbitrary attack on Westerners. Months later, the incident remains a mystery. Now, Liz Carlyle and her Counter Terrorism unit in MI5 have been charged with the task of watching the international under-the-counter arms trade.

This is the 3rd Stella Rimington novel that I have read - having missed the 1st five she wrote before I even knew she existed. I am now way down the path of being a huge Rimington fan. As I noted in earlier reviews of 2 other books of hers, I appreciate an interesting spy novel full of the nuts and bolts of how an operation runs, without being overly long or detailed in the telling. I also enjoy her novels because they lack the James Bond-like hijinks that too often appear in this genre in their telling. Now I like those too, for entertainment. Reading Rimington is just great storytelling and well developed characters without enormous leaps of faith or jumping over tall buildings in a single bound. Each of the three I have read have a different underlying theme. This one is about the intersection of gun-running and acts of terrorism. I have one more already published book of hers to read, her most recent, and hope by the time I get around to that one, she will already have another out. Great writer and CLOSE CALL is a great read. Enjoy.

Word reaches Liz Carlyle at MI-5 about arms shipments that may be coming into the UK for use by jihadists in a terror attack. Another page-turner!
