Publisher Description

*Discover The Secret Hours, the gripping new thriller from Mick Herron and an unmissable read for Slough House fans*

*Now a major TV series starring Gary Oldman*

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

In the Intelligence Service purgatory that is Slough House, where spies mockingly called the slow horses are sent to finish what is left of their careers, their boss Jackson Lamb is on his way Oxford. A former spook has turned up dead on a bus.

Not an obvious target for assassination, Dickie Bow was a talented streetwalker back in the day. Good at following people, bringing home their secrets. Dickie was in Berlin with Jackson Lamb. Now Lamb's got his phone, on it the last secret Dickie ever told, and reason to believe an old-time Moscow-style op is being run in the Intelligence Service's back-yard.

Once a spook, always a spook, and Dickie was one of their own. To unearth Dickie's dying secret Jackson Lamb and his crew of no-hopers is about to go live.

Slow Horses rise again

The Slow Horses have been augmented by two new members, both with additional skills to add to those already held by the other horses.

Sleeper agents in deepest England, shady Russian operatives/gangsters, combine to cause a chaotic storyline that resolves quite neatly.

One or two loose ends - the resolution of the strand regarding River’s lover being one.

I wonder if the MI5 archive head will become a recurring character...

Excellent read.

Very British, extremely witty and intelligently written, kept me page turning right to he last page. Now onto the next in the series, without hesitation.

Not as good as first one

Enjoyed first book in series but struggled to follow this one. Just didn’t gel for me.
