Book review

Secret Service by Tom Bradby

Secret Service by Tom Bradby

The world is on the brink of crisis. The Cold War is playing out once more on the global stage. The Worlds’ governments will do whatever it takes to stay at the top.

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.
