As we eagerly await the release of John Le Carré’s new novel A Legacy of Spies, Waterstones Gower Street celebrates some of his best-known and most iconic thrillers with a series of Rereading Le Carré evenings, featuring some of the best writers of modern spy fiction.
On August 8th Mick Herron, author of the critically-acclaimed Jackson Lamb spy novels, will be
talking to the Telegraph’s crime and thriller critic Jake Kerridge about JohnLe Carré’s 2003 thriller Absolute Friends. Written with the verve and mastery of the early work, this superb thriller spans fifty years in the lives of two friends, taking them from post-war West Germany, to the Cold War to modern day terrorism.
Mick Herron's first Jackson Lamb novel, Slow Horses, was described as the 'most enjoyable British spy novel in years' by the Mail on Sunday and picked as one of the best twenty spy novels of all time by the Daily Telegraph. The second, Dead Lions, won the 2013 CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger. The third, Real Tigers, was shortlisted for both the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger and the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger. His most recent title is Spook Street.
