Summary
  • David Hare's thrilling spy trilogy exposes the battles raging inside the intelligence community in the name of security. The Worricker stories include: Page Eight; Salting the Battlefield; and Turks & Caicos
  • Page Eight: Johnny Worricker is a long-serving MI5 officer. His boss and best friend dies suddenly, leaving behind him an inexplicable file, threatening the stability of the organization. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbor and political activist Nancy Pierpan seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find out the truth
  • Turks & Caicos: After the director of MI5 dies, a conspiracy to turn control of MI5 over to the Prime Minister leads Worricker to the islands known as the Turks & Caicos, where he is persuaded by the CIA to deal with a group of ambiguous Americans attending a high-level conference. At the same time, an old girlfriend, Margot Tyrrell, is being asked to betray her boss in London in order to establish an illicit connection between the prime minister and dark goings-on in the war on terror
  • Salting the Battlefield: Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrrell are on the run across Europe, with MI5 hard on their heels. But life in exile is proving much harder than either of them expected. Worricker knows that his only chance of resolving both his personal and his professional lives is if he returns home to confront the powerful prime minister, Alec Beasley. In a duel of wits between the two men, there will be only one winner
