'The finest new crime series this millennium' Mail on Sunday

Dickie Bow is not an obvious target for assassination.

But once a spook, always a spook. And Dickie was a talented streetwalker back in the day, before he turned up dead on a bus. A shadow. Good at following people, bringing home their secrets.

Dickie was in Berlin with Jackson Lamb. Now Lamb's got his phone, and on it the last secret Dickie ever told, and reason to believe an old-time Moscow-style op is being run in the Service's back-yard.

In the Intelligence Service purgatory that is Slough House, Jackson Lamb's crew of back-office no-hopers is about to go live . . .

A disappointment

This was a disappointing read. Having enjoyed the first book in the series, I had high expectations from this author but the writing was lazy and formulaic and it had the feel of a movie script with the heavy reliance on dialogue and its comparisons of characters to actors such as Timothy Spall or Tom Conti. Still, this is a bestselling author so he is clearly appealing to the many who want to gallop through a story without any superfluous detail intruding on the plot.
