Slough House by Mick Herron

‘Kill us?  They’ve never needed to kill us,’ said Lamb.  ‘I mean, look at us.  What would be the point?’

A year after a calamitous blunder by the Russian secret service left a British citizen dead from novichok poisoning, Diana Taverner is on the warpath.  What seems a gutless response from the government has pushed the Service’s First Desk into mounting her own counter-offensive – but she’s had to make a deal with the devil first.  And given that the devil in question is arch-manipulator Peter Judd, she could be about to lose control of everything she’s fought for.

Meanwhile, still reeling from recent losses, the slow horses are worried they’ve been pushed further into the cold.  Slough House has been wiped from Service records, and fatal accidents keep happening.  No wonder Jackson Lamb’s crew are feeling paranoid.  But have they actually been targeted?

With a new populist movement taking a grip on London's streets, and the old order ensuring that everything’s for sale to the highest bidder, the world’s an uncomfortable place for those deemed surplus to requirements.  The wise move would be to find a safe place and wait for the troubles to pass.

But the slow horses aren’t famed for making wise decisions.

Peer & Press Reviews

I can report that the new Mick Herron novel, Slough House, is as eye-wateringly funny as it is nerve-shreddingly tense.  I think this might be the best Jackson Lamb outing yet, and that’s taking it above a very high benchmark.

Christopher Brookmyre, author of The Cut

[Slough House] is the best yet.  The jokes are frequent and good, the pacing first rate, and the plot pieces, the moves and countermoves, snap as satisfyingly into place as anything I’ve read in the genre.

Times Literary Supplement

This is a darker, scarier Herron.  The gags are still there but the satire’s more biting.  The privatization of a secret service op and the manipulation of news is relevant and horribly credible.

Ann Cleeves, author of The Darkest Evening
