Stella Rimington has written a spy novel called Rip Tide.
It is about British Moslems becoming terrorists.
It could be seen as propaganda?

Stella Rimington has her favourite places.
"We visited a beautiful 17th-century synagogue, with wonderful old blue and white tiles on the floor." - Former UK spy boss Stella Rimington's heaven on earth

Stella Rimington was born Stella Whitehouse in South Norwood, in London.
Reportedly, her parents were Christian; she is not a Christian. (Interview: Stella Rimington, novelist and former head of MI5 )
In 1860 Barnett and Isabella Meyers presented the Jews' Hospital with eight acres of land in West Norwood, and a building to accommodate 220 children was erected. Sir Anthony Rothschild laid the foundation stone in 1861.
In 1993, Stella Rimington became the first Director General of the British Security Service MI5 to pose openly for cameras at the launch of a brochure outlining the organisation's activities..
Some suspect that the most important and most secret work is done by groups more secret than MI5.
