Publisher's Summary

Twenty years retired, David Cartwright can still spot when the stoats are on his trail. And he's not as defenceless as they might think.
Jackson Lamb worked with Cartwright back in the day. He knows better than most that this is no vulnerable old man.
'The old bastard' has raised his grandson with a head full of guts and glory. But far from joining Spook Street, River Cartwright is consigned to Lamb's team of no-hopers at Slough House. So it's Lamb they call to identify the body when Cartwright's panic button raises the alarm at Service HQ. And Lamb who will do whatever he thinks necessary to protect an agent in peril....

Another scorcher

I simply cannot get enough of this series. I'm horrified that I'm going to have to wait until February for the next instalment. What is it with writers? Don't they understand the contemporary need for instant gratification? Pshaw!

This next step, or should I say stumble, along the path with the slow horses does so at a whip-crack pace. I like the premise of this story too. Yes, it's sometimes far fetched and, as the series has gone on, the characters seem less bungling and more Bond but by now we're on their side anyway and want to see them perk up a bit and not get taken out by slickly professional assassins.

Sean Barrett is certainly now the voice of the hero Lamb and turns in another great performance.

My only complaint is the continual use of Americanisms that we British have to stomach: 'hood' 'cops' and I bet the 'BuzzLightyear' quip was a substitution for the colonials - Lamb wouldn't have a clue about 'Toy Story'. It's a British author give us the British publication for god's sake. However, I'm not going to penalise the author or narrator for an annoying corporate decision - only, listener be warned!

Excellent as always

Love the characters. Slough House is a wonderful invention, and is packed with terrific characters you just want to follow and observe. And I love the trade craft.

A great thriller, like all in this series. Now I just have to wait for the next one.
