Waterstones Says

A short, sharp blast of Slough House style as Mick Herron treats us to another compelling novella of washed-up spooks and dangerous secrets. Laconic, witty and unputdownable, The Catch is another one-sitting wonder from spy fiction royalty.

If life in the Intelligence Service has taught John Bachelor anything, it's to keep his head down. Especially now, when he's living rent-free in a dead spook's flat.

So he's not delighted to be woken at dawn by a pair of Regent's Park's heavies, looking for a client he's not seen in years. John doesn't know what secrets Benny Manors has stolen, but they're attracting the wrong attention. And if he's to save his own skin, not to mention safeguard his living arrangements, John has to find Benny before those secrets see the light.

Benny could be anywhere, provided it serves alcohol. So John sets out on a reluctant trawl through the bars of the capital, all the while plagued by the age-old questions: Will he end up sleeping in his car? How many bottles of gin can he afford at London prices?

And just how far will Regent's Park go to prevent anyone rocking the Establishment's boat?

“Short but oh so convolutedly sweet - or terrifying”

This was my second Mick Herron Slough House novella (courtesy of the library), and just as enjoyable as the first. This time the main character, John Bachelor, is an underpaid, underworked MI5 nursemaid (or... More

“They came for him at dawn...”

Even seeking, as I do, to look ahead at what books are coming up, I still sometimes get surprised (and it's always a nice surprise) as I was last weekend when I spotted The Catch in an Oxford bookshop.

“Losers and the lost”

This is a well crafted novella (a bit more than a short story, but way shorter than a novel) but it's a bit of a stretch to put it into the Slough House series. There are a couple of familiar MI5 names, but... More
