Stella Rimington - Spooking the Spooks

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 6 May 2012

Dame Stella Rimington worked her way up the ranks of Britain's internal security agency, MI5, to become its first woman Director-General. Nowadays she writes spy stories and says her fictional hero, Liz Carlyle, is allowed to say and do things that Stella couldn't during her early days in the male-dominated world of spying. Dame Stella Rimington's latest Liz Carlyle novel, 'Rip Tide', is published by Allen & Unwin.
