Reviews

Herron may be the most literate, and slyest, thriller writer in English today - Publishers WeeklyStylish and engaging - Washington PostA funny, stylish, satirical, gripping story - GuardianThe most enjoyable spy novel in years - Mail on SundayA useful corrective in the era of television's superheroic Spooks, Herron's superb novels suggest that the most important secret spies are hiding is, that they are just like us - Daily TelegraphI was delighted to discover that this is merely the first in a captivating series about Slough House, where the intelligence services' misfits and screw-ups become the useful tools of Herron's quite magnificent creation, Jackson Lamb. This is an old-school espionage thriller where foreign powers might be a danger, but the true enemies are sitting at another desk - HeraldI was delighted to discover Mick Herron's riotous Slow Horses series about the black sheep of MI5 - Big IssueThe first of his series about MI5 and a character called Jackson Lamb, one of the great monsters of modern fiction. He's a wonderfully cynical writer and there's a lot of dark humour in it. I'm not clever enough to write this sort of thing - Daily Express
