CRY HAVOC by CLIVE EGLETON
SIS agent Peter Ashton, currently the department head for
the Eastern European desk, finds himself facing the
touchiest - and most dangerous situation of his career as
the SIS itself comes under siege from persons or groups
unknown. Someone who is clearly ferreting out some of the
most closely held secrets of the intelligence agency and
using them to make some not-so-veiled threats.
At the same time, Jill Sheridan, one of the most senior SIS
people, is off in Florida, trying to stay well out of the
way while her lover's wife involves her in a very nasty,
very public divorce. While there, however, she is
compromised and finds herself being blackmailed by an
Islamic terrorist group.
When a large quantity of an illicit chemical agent turns up
in rather unlikely place, it falls to Ashton to evaluate
these three very disparate turns of event. Somehow, these
seemingly unrelated but troubling events are all part of
the same careful, complex and very deadly plot - one that
threatens the highest reaches of England's security
service. With few leads and very little time, Peter Ashton
must uncover and neutralize his most deadly enemy to date.
