London's Slough House is where disgraced MI5 operatives are reassigned to spend the rest of their careers pushing paper. But when one of these fallen spies is kidnapped by a former soldier bent on revenge, the agents must breach the defenses of Regent's Park to steal valuable intel in exchange for their comrade's safety. The kidnapping is only the tip of the iceberg, however, as the agents uncover a larger web of intrigue that involves not only a group of private mercenaries, but also the highest authorities in the Security Service. After years spent as the lowest on the totem pole, the spies suddenly find themselves caught in the midst of a conspiracy that threatens not only the future of Slough House, but of MI5 itself ...

"an excellently written novel permeated by Herron’s sly, dry and very English sense of humour — rather as if Philip Larkin or Alan Bennett had had a go at spy fiction" - Sunday Times
 
 
"Deliciously tongue-in-cheek and with a striking serpentine construction, it is a thriller that moves Herron close to the class of Graham Greene."  Daily Mail

MEDIA REVIEWS
Herron's Slough House novels are the finest new crime series this Millennium * Mail on Sunday *
If you read one spy novel this year, read Real Tigers. Better still, read the whole series * Andrew Taylor, The Spectator *
Real Tigers has revitalised the spy thriller genre * Sunday Express *
Surely among the finest British spy fiction of the past 20 years * Metro *
A thriller that moves Herron close to the class of Graham Greene * Daily Mail *
Herron fills a gap that has been yawning ever since Len Deighton retired * Daily Telegraph *
A pulsating spy thriller * Daily Express *
Think Le Carre with fewer posh people and laugh-out-loud funny. Mick Herron is the real deal * Irish Times *
Sardonically funny and pleasingly complex * Independent *
Rather as if Philip Larkin or Alan Bennett had had a go at spy fiction * Sunday Times *
What a find! . . . I think Herron's is the next big name in crime fiction * Literary Review *
