Brilliant book. Brilliant narration. Buy it. Don't look back, you'll love it if you love intelligent, sharp, original, dark, witty thrillers
There is a plodding nature about the series about the Slow Horses of Slough house which is captivating. It is a little like Le Carre, with more humour. I enjoyed it.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this book. It was my first thriller in some time and was a great choice. Sean Barrett is a fantastic narrator, bringing enormous character and humour to the dialogue. I will definitely be seeking this narrator and author again,

As always an excellent narrative by Sean Barrett who smooth, rich voice eases the horrors of sudden death or near deaths.
Mick Herron's Slough House crowd, all of whom have lost the right to be active agents, are a bunch of losers and misfits resentful of their outcast status from the frontline spies or spooks in Regent's Park. Lamb's instincts and his "team's" fishing expeditions build a far from benign picture that, almost despite themselves, they rescue the City from the brink of disaster. Strangely or sadly, yet again they are unable to claim the credit or cover themselves with glory; they are the "Slow Horses" and unlikely to the heroes of any story or so Regent's Park think!
There is also a keen humourous streak that keeps you amused and laughing despite everything.
I am enjoying this series!
