The Steel Dagger is awarded to the best thriller published throughout the year in the UK, and A Foreign Country is a very worthy winner for 2012.
Amelia Levene, the first female Chief of MI6, has disappeared without a trace, six weeks before she is due to take on the role. Desperate not only to find her, but to keep her disappearance a secret, Britainâs top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced MI6 officer Thomas Kell. Tossed out of the Service only months before, Kell is given one final chance to redeem himself â find Amelia Levene at any cost. The trail leads Kell to France and Tunisia, where he uncovers a shocking secret and a conspiracy that could have unimaginable repercussions for Britain and her allies. Only Kell stands in the way of personal and political catastrophe.
