British secret agent Susan Collis is shot whilst on a mission in Croatia, and retires to Scotland under an assumed identity of Ann Cameron to manage a sporting estate owned by a successful London businessman, Anthony Barron. Ann falls in love with Anthony and the pair marry, but her happy settled life in the Highlands and London is disrupted when she and her former colleague, Rose Armstrong, discover evidence of corruption in Ann’s old department in the MOD. And when the life of Susan’s former partner and close friend, Jess, is put in danger, Susan decides to return to work to uncover the truth about the numerous threats, both foreign and domestic, which imperil not only their lives, but also the security of the nation. Their investigation identifies a criminal in the MOD and a double agent within MI6 whose threats are removed.

Jun 29, 2015[Following is an excerpt from the official OnlineBookClub.org review of "The Female of the Species; is more deadly than the Male" by A. Machin-Taylor. You can check out the full review on this link: www.OnlineBookClub.org] The Female of the Species is more deadly than the male by A. Machin-Taylor is a fiction, mystery/crime novel (280 pages long) and is the first novel that Machin-Taylor has published. The setting takes place mostly in France and Britain. This novel was a very entertaining read: suspenseful at times, had some action, almost like watching a crime movie. The author hooks the reader from the prologue and sends the reader wanting to know more about the mysterious British Agents and how their lives weave together, leaving you wondering: who's the friend and who's the foe? The main character Agent Susan Collis and her partner, Jess, are sent to find a long sought-after criminal by the MOD, which is the British Secret Service, named Marko Savic. While searching for... More > the criminal, Susan and Jess are injured when they encounter gunmen in the Croatia Mountains. After this ordeal, Susan is forced to change her identity and take up a new name- Ann Cameron (Susan Collis is erased as if she never existed), for her safety and the safety of the people she is working for. With her new identity, she must begin an entirely new life. But as she is settling down, a friend from M16 contacts her about some fishy activity involving Ann's old mission- the one in the Croatia, where she and her ex partner, Jess, were nearly killed-- it is suspected that there is a double agent, or possibly agents, working in the M16 and the MOD, and feeding information to their enemies. Ann, Jess, and Rose Armstrong, combined with few individuals of the French Secret Service, try to solve the case before this leak of information kills Jess and Ann, amongst other British and French agents. Will Ann and Jess be able to start a new life or will they be forced to continue to fight and destroy their killers before the others destroy them? Machin-Taylor presents her characters vaguely and mysteriously in the beginning, causing the reader to want to know more about them. As the novel progresses, the reader learns more and more about each character, but in a way, Machin-Taylor still leaves him wondering about what happens next to them at the end of the novel....< Less
