Overview

From British journalist and bestselling author, Tom Bradby, Secret Service is a fresh-from-the-headlines thriller that follows senior MI6 agent Kate Henderson as she races to unmask a Russian mole in the UK government.

To those who don?t really know her, Kate Henderson?s life must seem perfectly ordinary. But she is in fact a senior MI6 officer, who right now is nursing the political equivalent of a nuclear bomb. While heading up the Russia Desk of the Secret Intelligent Service, one of Kate?s undercover operations has revealed some alarming evidence. Evidence that a senior UK politician is a high level Russian informer.

Determined to find out who it is, Kate must risk everything to get to the truth. Until a young woman is brutally murdered as a consequence, which puts Kate and her team under the spotlight.

With blood on her hands, her reputation to uphold, her family hanging by a thread and a leadership election looming, Kate is quickly running out of options and out of time.



The best-selling author of Blood Money presents a headline-inspired thriller that follows a senior MI6 agent?s race to unmask a Russian mole in the U.K. government while proving the innocence of her team in a young woman?s murder.

Kate's mission to bug a Russian oligarch's super-yacht in Istanbul has yielded the startling intelligence that the British Prime Minister has prostate cancer-and that one of the leading candidates to replace him may be a Russian agent of influence. Is this "intelligence" reliable-or is it an attempt to create chaos within the British hierarchy? Kate's bosses have their doubts. But when the Prime Minister suddenly announces his resignation, the hunt for the spy begins in earnest. It's a nightmarish task, made infinitely worse by the revelation that there may be another mole-codename Viper-at the heart of the Establishment. As the tension mounts, an operation that looked as if it might cost Kate her sanity appears poised to do much, much more than that. With her reputation to uphold, her family hanging by a thread, and a leadership election looming, Kate is quickly running out of options-and out of time"--
