Mick Herron's critically acclaimed and bestselling Slough House thriller series available as a boxset for the first time
*NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES STARRTING GARY OLDMAN
'Herron is at the summit of a new golden age of spy fiction' Sunday Times
Spooks are supposed to be stealthy ... But those who make a noisy mess of their careers end up in Slough House.
This is Jackson Lamb's kingdom: a dumping ground for spies who've screwed up. Once high fliers, they're now slow horses, condemned to a life of pushing paper as punishment for crimes of drugs and drunkenness, lechery and failure, politics and betrayal. In drab and mildewed offices, these highly trained spies moan and squabble, stare at the walls, and dream of better days - not one of them joined the Intelligence Service to be a slow horse, and the one thing they have in common is their desire to be back in the action.
Housed together for the first time in a beatifully crafted boxset, Mick Herron's Slough House thrillers have been described as 'The most exciting development in spy fiction since the Cold War' The Times
