Waterstones Says

If Spook Street is where spies live, Joe Country is where they go to die and as Jackson Lamb’s crew of misfit exiles emerge for the sixth time, it looks likely not all of them will return from the field. In the dead of winter, more than one character is brooding over buried bones and unfinished business. It might just be time for the chickens to come home to roost.

"We're spies," said Lamb. "All kinds of outlandish shit goes on".

Like the ringing of a dead man's phone, or an unwelcome guest at a funeral ...

In Slough House memories are stirring, all of them bad. Catherine Standish is buying booze again, Louisa Guy is raking over the ashes of lost love, and new recruit Lech Wicinski, whose sins make him outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process.

Meanwhile, in Regent's Park, Diana Taverner's tenure as First Desk is running into difficulties. If she's going to make the Service fit for purpose, she might have to make deals with a familiar old devil ...

And with winter taking its grip Jackson Lamb would sooner be left brooding in peace, but even he can't ignore the dried blood on his carpets. So when the man responsible breaks cover at last, Lamb sends the slow horses out to even the score.

This time, they're heading into joe country.

And they're not all coming home.

“Rich, dark, intense and utterly, completely, wonderful.”

I adore Mick Herron’s writing. It is acerbic, witty and coruscating. This is prose you can wallow in; feel it as it seeps slickly through your fingers leaving a residue of mingled pleasure and pain that never for a... More
