Description

Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger and Ian Fleming Steel Dagger. 

London Rules might not be written down, but everyone knows rule one.

Cover your arse.

Regent's Park's First Desk, Claude Whelan, is learning this the hard way. Tasked with protecting a beleaguered prime minister, he's facing attack from all directions himself: from the showboating MP who orchestrated the Brexit vote, and now has his sights set on Number 10; from the showboat's wife, a tabloid columnist, who's crucifying Whelan in print; and especially from his own deputy, Lady Di Taverner, who's alert for Claude's every stumble.

Meanwhile, the country's being rocked by an apparently random string of terror attacks, and someone's trying to kill Roddy Ho.

Over at Slough House, the crew are struggling with personal problems: repressed grief, various addictions, retail paralysis, and the nagging suspicion that their newest colleague is a psychopath. But collectively, they're about to rediscover their greatest strength - that of making a bad situation much, much worse.

It's a good job Jackson Lamb knows the rules. Because those things aren't going to break themselves.

Critiques

"The UK's new spy master." (Sunday Times

"Herron is spy fiction's great humorist, mixing absurd situations with sparklingly funny dialogue and elegant, witty prose." (The Times

"Herron draws his readers so fully into the world of Slough House that the incautious might find themselves slipping between the pages and transformed from reader to spook." (Irish Times)

Another Slough Horses Epic Advenure

Another serious and ironic Herron spy story. Great audio book interpretation. All the Slough Horses secret service chars are full of flaws, yet they feel real. Same for the Regent Park people their counterparts.

Jackson Lem, orripilante, cunning and in the end protective, it’s on of my favourite novel character ever.

A spy thriller / dark comedy that really works!

I don't know how I came upon this book, but it's one of the best audio books I have ever listened to.
The story is great, it's British comedy that's really funny, it's also a proper spy thriller, and the narration is superb!

Brilliant!

Mick Herron has to be one of the best crime/spy writers on the scene today. Not only is he an intelligent and highly skilled writer who is a joy to read but he has a wickedly acute sense of humour and is an wry observer of our common humanity.
The Slough House series goes from strength to strength.
i can't recommend this book highly enough - outstanding.
