Description

'The new king of the spy thriller' Mail on Sunday

Slough House is a dumping ground for members of the intelligence service who've screwed up: left a service file on a train, say, blown a surveillance, or become drunkenly unreliable. They're the service's poor relations - the slow horses - and most bitter among them is River Cartwright, whose days are spent transcribing mobile phone conversations.

But when a young man is abducted, and his kidnappers threaten to behead him live on the internet, River sees an opportunity to redeem himself. But is the victim who he first appears to be? And what's the kidnappers' connection with a disgraced journalist? As the clock ticks on the execution, River finds that everyone involved has their own agenda . . .

    Cynically world weary. Self-consciously obscure. Aspiring to wit and humour but destined to be a slow horse on a grey and rain swept course like the anonymous and unlikeable characters of this disappointing novel. But maybe the enthusiastic reviewers read an un-redacted version which retained the illusion of life and excitement. I shall not be tempted to continue the series.

    First Mick Herron book I have read and now on 'catch up'! Great characters in this particular novel and the plot moves along at a nice pace. Like his style of writing.
