About the Author

Eliza Manningham-Buller joined MI5 in 1974. During her career she worked to counter the full range of security threats facing the UK, her main focus being counterterrorism. She led the section responsible for investigating international terrorism at the time of the Lockerbie bombing. Later she was posted to Washington as the senior liaison officer from MI5 to the US intelligence community, a period that coincided with the first Gulf War in 1991. On her return to London the following year she established and led a new section responsible for countering Irish terrorism on the British mainland. Manningham-Buller was promoted to the MI5 management board in 1993. She was appointed Deputy Director-General in 1997. She became Director-General in 2002 and led MI5 through major changes in the wake of 9/11 while dealing with a greatly increased terrorist threat. She retired in 2007, after thirty-three years at MI5.
