The explosive new stand-alone thriller from the author of the Spider Shepherd series
Sally Page is an MI5 'footie', a junior Secret Service Agent who maintains 'legends': fake identities or footprints used by real spies. Her day consists of maintaining flats and houses where the legends allegedly live, doing online shopping, using payment, loyalty and travel cards and going on social media in their names - anything to give the impression to hostile surveillance that the legends are living, breathing individuals.
One day she goes out for coffee leaving the safe house from which she and her fellow footies operate. When she comes back they have all been murdered and she barely escapes with her own life. She is on the run: but from whom she has no idea. Worse, her bosses at MI5 seem powerless to help her. To live, she will have to use all the lies and false identities she has so carefully created while discovering the truth . . .

Top reviews from United Kingdom
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It was great to see Major Gannon in action too, no nonsense get the job done.
I'd like to find out which way Mendoza goes, maybe scope for another standalone along with Hirst's backstory.
A fine, action packed white knuckle ride to the last chapter.
A thoroughly enjoyable read. Thank you for giving us a heroine! More please.
Then she realises she can't even rely on her own people in MI5 and has to go cap-in-hand to her ex-boyfriend; and then the fireworks really start to fly!
Not certain that my reviews on Mr Leather,s books are really of value as I don’t think I have read one I didn’t enjoy.
Always page turners always good story lines and always make a comment about the state of the country at the present time.
Keep them coming.
