About the book

Stella Rimmington meets State of Play in this smart political thriller for a new generation of Le Carre devourers.

Part political thriller, part story of an Irish girl who shakes off her IRA family past to become an MP and Minister at Westminster But whose side is she really on?

Straddling 1990s Belfast /Dublin and present day London we follow the journey of eighteen year old Maire Anne McCartney recruited for a one-time IRA mission as she then becomes Anne-Marie McCartney Home Office Minister of State for Security and Immigration. When bodies from a 1980s MI5 spy mission start to be uncovered her new identity comes into periolous risk of being uncovered. With blurred lines right up to the very end, Woman of State will keep you guessing as to where Maires allegiances lie.

Tackling themes of love, idealism, betrayal and deceit, Woman of State is a smart novel that crackles with the authenticity youd expect from the author's own astonishing background. This is the first of many novels tackling secrets and the state.
