If Spook Street is where spies live, Joe Country is where they go to die. In Slough House, the London outpost for disgraced spies MI5, 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 outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process. Meanwhile, in Regent's Park, Diana Taverner's tenure as First Desk is running into difficulties. If she's going to make the Service fit for purpose, she might have to make deals with a familiar old devil . . . 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Suspense, spycraft, dry wit, and vulgar humor are all well-deployed in this satisfying work by Mr. Herron, whose style can accommodate everything from a tough action scene to a lyrical elegy.” Wall Street Journal
“Herron writes squeakingly well-plotted spy thrillers.” The Atlantic
“Herron blends character, place, and espionage into a riveting melange that I’ve only encountered in the best of John le Carré or Len Deighton.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“John le Carré with an extra dose of dry humor.” Seattle Times
