With Rip Tide, the latest in her two-word titles series about MI5 Intelligence officer Liz Carlyle, Stella Rimington, herself the former head of MI5, delves into the murky world of Somalian pirates, home grown Islamic terrorists and how to prevent the kind of trouble governments simply don’t want to hear about. She talks to Sandra Yates.
