A mystery in a day in the life of Slough House.
MI5 has a cast-off department where screw-ups and castaways go to pasture. Whether it is because of gambling addictions, or leaving a file on a subway car, everyone at Slough House is a "slow horse" or, as they are sometimes referred, "Special Needs".
The character development is filled out enough that you have a feeling of who the main players really are, and you know what makes them tick. They are the underdogs, and deep down want to prove themselves.
When they catch wind of a sleeper cell from Cold War times being awakened, they might have a chance to redeem themselves.
Slow Horses is the prequal to Dead Lions.

But the narrator is really really really bad. It is like he is reading aloud to children. And his interpretation of the book really is off. This audio book is also narrated by Sean Barrett and he is fantastic, but try as I might I was not able to get a copy and was stuck with this copy which I chose to pay for instead of using a credit because it was so cheap. I really liked the first book...Slow Horses...and am muddling my way through this version...I don't know what they were thinking using Mr. Barrett for the first book and then going with Mr. Healy for Dead Lions...but they must have had second thoughts to then have Mr. Barrett do Dead Lions as well. It is available in that version in the UK and Australia, etc...ugh.
