Counterfeit Conscience by Helena Maeve


On the brink of retirement, a spy will risk all.

The writing’s on the wall. Will Rowe has no illusions about retaining his post as the head of the largest Section field office in South America. Private contractors, some more lawful than others, already see to most of their interests. It’s only a matter of time before Will himself is made redundant. He’d like to think he’s made peace with the inevitable, but when a figure from his past offers one last chance to make a difference, Will can’t resist.

Caught between his duty to the agency and his commitment to protect his operatives, Will must persuade the man who nearly wrecked his career to give up the one and only constant in his world—revenge.

Ignacio was a low-grade runner for the infamous Macias cartel the last time he and Will spoke. Now he is the head of the family and a direct beneficiary of MI6 cost-cutting measures. Will knows that approaching such a man without his superiors’ knowledge or approval is a perilous undertaking, but he doesn’t expect his body and heart to become forfeit. As events spiral out of his control, Will finds himself at the mercy of an old lover intent on awakening desires he long thought suppressed.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the fifth in the series – and I would recommend that you read them in order...even better, read them one after the other, as the underlying plot is convoluted to say the least, and not everything is yet revealed! I am looking forward to them all being out and having a reading jag, so that I will get all the subtleties that I miss due to not having all the names and roles at the front of my mind. What I have thought, as I have read them, is that being sexually open is obviously an advantage and also a disadvantage when you are in the spy business!

There is a little more information about Karim's bosses here, but not a lot – and we get an interesting cross/double-cross scenario playing out with Will and his erstwhile lover Ignacio. Can I tell you how it ends up? Possibly not, because there is bound to be another twist in the offing. Good to meet some new characters and hear of old 'friends' too. The mix of spies, harshness and intimacy is confusing, but makes for interesting reading.
