Review: At Risk

At Risk
At Risk by Stella Rimington
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quite a solid thriller, especially for a debut. Plot felt very similar to Updike’s Terrorist with a slightly different resolution and in a different (minor) league as far as the prose goes, but I enjoyed it anyway. I do hope that some authors writing “woman-in-a-man’s-world” stories latch on to the fact that there can be other and more intriguing aspects to such a tale than the simple tired device that the woman faces an uphill battle because of her gender.
