Lex Tyler is trying to have it all, but being a working mother is so much more difficult when you’re a secret agent for an underground branch of the security services.
Platform Eight have been tasked with tracking down and eliminating the traitor in MI6 who has been selling information to the highest bidder through a headhunting website for the criminal underworld that connects intelligence operatives with all manner of bad people with a simple right swipe.
Deals get made. Secrets get sold. Missions fail. Agents die.
It’s down to Lex and her team to identify and eliminate the traitor before they assassinate China’s Minister of Commerce and ruin relations between the UK and China forever. But when your husband doesn’t know exactly what your job entails and the future of the intelligence services rests on your shoulders, can one working mother save the day?
This is one mission that Lex cannot afford to fail.
I LOVED this. Wildly entertaining with a brilliantly witty main protagonist and a banging good story to boot.
There’s edge of the seat moments, hilarious asides, glitter and a bit of glamour and all the joys of juggling parenthood and professional life.
If you are a parent you will relate even if you are not a secret government assassin, the difficulties are the same. This, like Killing It, is a brilliant hybrid of espionage and family drama with an edgy, involving prose that will have you laughing out loud one moment and clutching your head the next.
Cleverly plotted and engagingly humerous this is a book to savour. Forget Killing Eve, Lex Tyler is the far superior creation and I hope for many many more novels to come.
