Illegal Action : (Liz Carlyle 3) Paperback
Part of the Liz Carlyle series
When MI5 intelligence officer Liz Carlyle learns of a Russian government plot to kill super-rich Nikita Brunovsky - a man who openly criticises the Putin regime from his London base - it's a race against time to track down the killer.
How the Russian is to be silenced is unclear, but the Foreign Office dreads any kind of incident and Liz must work fast to protect him.
As she goes undercover, desperately trying to find out who in Brunovsky's retinue might betray him, Liz discovers that an 'illegal' Russian agent has arrived in London.
Is this the assassin she is seeking? Under an assumed name, caught up in the high-octane world of the oligarchs, Liz soon finds herself in terrible danger.

Review by edwardsgt
Another story in the Liz Carlyle series. This time she goes undercover at a Russian Oligarch's house in London to try to identify if he is under threat and by whom. As you might expect good on security services procedural detail, including inter-service rivalries, which kept me reading up to the end, although not wholly satisfactory plotting.
Review by quiBee
It feels authentic. Pieces come together bit by bit and what seems obvious doesn't pan out.
