Johnny Worricker is a long-serving MI5 officer. His boss and best friend Benedict Baron dies suddenly, leaving behind a contentious file whose explosive contents threaten the stability of the organisation. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbour and political activist Nancy Pierpan seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find the truth.
Turks & Caicos
Johnny Worricker is hiding out from his work at MI5 on the tax-exile islands, Turks & Caicos. Trouble comes knocking when an encounter with a CIA agent forces him into the company of some dubious American businessmen. Claiming to be on the islands for a conference on the global financial crisis, Worricker soon learns their shady activities extend far beyond luxury hotels. When one of them turns up dead, it's their financial PR who seems to know more than she’s letting on. But will she help Johnny come to an understanding of what these men do and why they’re here? As evidence linking them to Prime Minister Alec Beasley comes to light, Worricker must act quickly if he is to survive.
Salting the Battlefield
Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrrell are now 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. To do this, he’s going to have to bring to light some unsavoury 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.

Bill Nighy at his best!
Sat, 10 Mar 2018 | Review by: Therese R
David Hare's "Worricker Trilogy" is a tour de force from all perspectives: writing, acting and directing. Written with Bill Nighy in mind, Worricker is a middle-aged spy and Deputy to the Head of MI5 who dies unexpectedly leaving Worricker as either his successor or a pawn in an internal chess game. Determined not to let his friend and boss's uncovering of post 9/11 collusion be buried with him, Worricker steals a file that could get him killed. The race to verify the file's contents and release it before his potential captors can reach him envelopes Worricker and those closest to him in an international game of potentially lethal hide and seek. The ending is one only a Brit could write. If you liked a "Very British Coup", you'll love "Worricker."
