Review

PRAISE FOR STELLA RIMINGTON: 'Rimington's best work demonstrates a flair for narrative, with a sense of authenticity and an insider's grasp on the pressing issues of the day Washington Post For a pacy page-turner, she's a safe bet ... Rimington is particularly strong in her accounts of procedure, unsurprisingly, given her past role as Head of MI5 Independent Liz Carlyle is an MI5 agent with the traditional thriller-heroine mix of dysfunctional personal life and steely ambition Daily Telegraph Rich with authentic details from Rimington's own life as director general of MI5, this is a must-read for fans of contemporary spy fiction Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is a quick read - a real page turner.
Paul Williams
Thought it took too long to get into the real action and then the book was complete.
Elaine Reynolds
Stella Rimington can always be relied on to write a good story.

The Genever Trap plot carries all the conviction that one would expect from the former head of MI5. Stella Remington writes well and perhaps, one day in the future it will be possible to see copies of her reports while working in MI5. My guess they would be masterly examples of clarity and subtle insinuations on matters of which she may have disapproved.

This 7th in former MI5 Director General Stella Rimington's "Liz Carlyle" series takes on a case of cyber-sabotage connected to a joint US/UK defense program that's so top-secret not even Liz and her cohorts at MI5 and 6 knew of it until an old acquaintance from Russia turns up to warn Liz that there's a saboteur lurking somewhere in the program who's working for another country. But what country? Dunno.

And might that have something to do with why and how that rogue drone over the Nevada desert suddenly started engaging in destructive acts its programmers never programmed it to do?

Before it's all over, not only the US and UK but also Russia, Switzerland, France and both Koreas will have become involved, and the cast of characters, good and bad, will have grown to the point where this reader found herself having a hard time keeping up with who they all were and what country or character or plot thread they were connected to.

Meanwhile, back on the romantic front, Martin's still very much in the picture and this time poor old Charles doesn't even merit a mention. Hmmmm.

Not among my favorites in this series. But a good read nonetheless. Will probably have greater appeal to those more cyber-savvy than I.

I look forward the reading more adventures of Liz.

There is both character development and reasonable action.

It is not too unbelievable.

Liz Carlyle is no Jason Bourne that's for sure. This is the first book of this series that I have read and I may try a couple more because I like espionage mysteries but Ms. Rimington has a long way to go if she is aiming to be the next John Le Carre. Quick read, predictable and does not require any thinking on the part of the reader.

This was our book group selection and we were all disappointed with it. The characters were ill defined and the supposed heroine didn't really get involved in the plot. Her assistant had as much to do as she did. For someone with a spy background we found the book tame and not terribly interesting. Easy to read.

The Geneva Trap is a sophisticated espionage tale, mercifully lacking the macho violence so often seen in this genre. Characters interweave cleverly and the plot has enough twists and turns to keep the reader's interest.
