Everyone is shocked to learn of CIA agent Samuel Walker's death. It's been labeled a suicide but he had made appointment less than an hour before to see Harry Pearce as he had information on the secret meeting of rogue Western agents and Chinese spies in Bern. Soon after Walker's death, another American is killed and then a British agent. As they try to sort out the connection between the murders, Ros Myers is contacted by her one-time mentor, Jack Coleville, the man who recruited her. He's now retired and asks her to read his memoirs but she soon realizes that that she is being duped. As they desperately try to find Coleville and stop him from continuing his revenge driven campaign, Sarah Caulfield sees the perfect opportunity to cover up her own activities. Written by garykmcd

Somebody is killing our agents
4 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After last week's revelation that CIA agent and Lucas' lover, Sarah Caulfield is part of a shadowy group of international intelligence agents and is willing to kill to protect her secret we have more agents dying, both CIA and MI-6. Is it the work of Sarah and her group or has somebody else got a reason to kill agents. Meanwhile the man who recruited Ros has approached her to tell her he is writing an autobiography which casts doubt on some of Harry's actions many years before. Not surprisingly he denies any knowledge of it but that is hardly surprising.

It doesn't take them very long to realise that the former agent is up to no good, the question is are his motives personal or is he part of a larger conspiracy and can MI-5 stop him before he kills more agents.

Once again Spooks delivers an hour our well acted tense television that had me on the edge of my seat, with other shows you know the core cast will survive but on Spooks you never know, everybody seems expendable.
