Publisher's Summary

A thrilling fourth installment in the CWA Gold Dagger-winning Slough House series. What happens when an old spook loses his mind? Does the Service have a retirement home for those who know too many secrets but don't remember they're secret? Or does someone take care of the senile spy for good? These are the questions River Cartwright must ask when his grandfather, a Cold War-era operative, starts to forget to wear pants and begins to suspect everyone in his life has been sent by the Service to watch him. But River has other things to worry about. A bomb goes off in the middle of a busy shopping center and kills 40 innocent civilians. The agents of Slough House have to figure out who is behind this act of terror before the situation escalates.

Best so far

This is a wonderful series and with each new book released it just gets better and better. I definitely recommend starting with the first book in the series (and an extra tip: read Mick Herron's book Nobody Walks prior to reading Spook Street). You will have a much better understanding of one of the characters if you do.
This author excels at character development. You may not like the characters, but you will definitely feel like you come to know them. The plot is exciting and the pacing is spot on. I strongly recommend this series.
As always, Gerard Doyle's narration is stellar.

Daily life stops for Slow Horses

I do this to myself every time: buy the audible version and forsake my own life until I've listened to the end. Herron's Slough House series rises above ordinary thrillers, which I find formulaic and boring, by being character driven while also being as tense as they come. They're also tremendously funny. When Jackson Lamb finally shows up at Slough after a long absence, I cracked up so much that I had to listen to the scene twice.

There's just enough background so that you can enjoy this book without having read the previous three, but why would you deny yourself the pleasure?
