Joe Country by Mick Herron

‘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 an outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process.

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

Mick Herron is fast becoming the go-to author for British espionage…  Aficionados can expect Herron’s trademark snappy dialogue, memorably flawed characters and sharp political observation.


Well observed, angry and deeply sad, Joe Country is fundamentally about injustice…  It is a rare novelist who can make such unrelenting misery so funny.


Every bit as captivating as its predecessors… like a pin-sharp sitcom that happens to include murder and high politics, they purr along on the gracelessness and ineptitude of the self-deluding Slow Horses, the unmatchable Lamb, and the crackling writing that has made all six in the series unmissable.
