Goddamn, this is a great spy series. Slough House is where disgraced MI6 agents go to be ignored until they die. Led by the corpulent and incorrigible spymaster (and utter bastard) Jackson Lamb, however, international mischief ends up abounding. The death of a Cold War relic leads to the discovery of a sleeper cell that has been slumbering for longer than most spies can remember. What does this have to do with the arrival in London of a mysterious Russian oligarch? Herron's plotting keeps the reader guessing until the knuckles goes white, but ultimately it's his characters who win the day. The screw-ups of Slough House might not be the spooks you want to raise a pint with, but they are as entertaining a crew as thrillers have to offer. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
