Stella Rimington first joined Britain’s Security Service (MI5) part-time in 1965, while she was in India accompanying her husband on a posting to New Delhi. She became a full-time employee on her return to the U.K. During her career with MI5, she worked in all the main fields of the Service: counter-subversion, counter-espionage and counter-terrorism becoming, successively, Director of all three branches. She was appointed Director-General in 1992 -- the first woman to hold the post and the first Director-General whose name was publicly announced. During her tenure, she pursued a policy of greater openness for MI5, giving several public lectures and publishing a booklet about the service.

Recenzii

“The story of MI5’s transformation… is fascinating. So too is Rimington’s account of her rise in what was very definitely a man’s world.” -- The Guardian

“The most effective Secret Service is the one which is secret. She should shut up.” -- Bernard Ingham

“Stella Rimington deserves our thanks for resisting the bullying of the cabinet office and many of her colleagues and associates in Whitehall and pushing on to publication.” -- New Statesman
"Was she right to publish? Most certainly. If we are to have a mature attitude to our intelligence services, we need this kind of inside account - it is vital in stripping away mystique and building understanding" Daily Telegraph "Stella Rimington deserves our thanks for resisting the bullying of the cabinet office and many of her colleagues and associates in Whitehall, and pushing on to publication" New Statesman "She writes in a refreshingly self-deprecating style of juggling the roles of single parent and chief "spook" Independent on Sunday
