Publisher's Summary

Slough House is a dumping ground for British intelligence agents who've screwed up cases in any number of ways - by leaving a secret file on a train or blowing a surveillance. River Cartwright, one such "slow horse", is bitter about his failure and about his tedious assignment transcribing cell phone conversations.
When a young man is abducted and his kidnappers threaten to broadcast his beheading live on the Internet, River sees an opportunity to redeem himself.
Is the victim whom he first appears to be? And what's the kidnappers' connection with a disgraced journalist? As the clock ticks on the execution, River finds that everyone has his own agenda.

Great Alternative Spyware Story

Great British spy story - battle between bureaucratic office politics players and carreer screw ups lead by a seedy unattractive has been. No James Bond in sight but great characters. Then of course there is kidnapping, murder and the threat of a live streamed beheading to keep things moving.

Excellent. series, excellent narration

Have listened to the first 2 books in this highly enjoyable series. While I liked the 2nd book (dead lions) better as a story, Gerard Doyle really made the audio version a joy. Would highly recommend the book and series - would suggest you read them in order if you can.
