This is a re-release of the original title Salting the Battlefield (2014).
The Johnny Worricker Spy trilogy concludes with Salting the Battlefield, in which our hero with his ex girlfriend, Margot are criss-crossing Europe trying to stay one step ahead of the security services and a vengeful Prime Minister. Worricker is being watched - His family and friends are being watched - He is running out of cash and he needs to make a move to reach an endgame.
Following the events in Turks & Caicos (2014) Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrell are in Europe trying to stay one step ahead of the Security Service. Through his old friend and colleague Rollo, he's managed to plant a story in The Independent about the source of the Prime Minister's "bridge" fund, but it gains little traction. Running low on cash, Worricker realizes that they'll have to go home. He pursues getting the story out by contacting The Independent's editor Belinda Kay and telling her the whole story. Meanwhile Jill Tankard, the head of MI-5, begins feeding information to Deputy Prime Minister Anthea Catcheside suggesting that the PM may be on his way out. For Worricker, he realizes too late that he too is a pawn in a much larger game.
MI5 officer Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) and Margot Tyrell (Helena Bonham Carter) are on the run together across Europe, going from town to town in Germany. But Worricker knows his only chance of resolving his problems is to return home and confront his nemesis-the prime minister, Alec Beasley (Ralph Fiennes). To do this, he's going to have to bring to light some unsavory facts about the prime minister's financial and business arrangements. But Worricker is haunted by the suspicion that he's not the only person out to undermine the prime minister.
