Slow Horses Summary

Slow Horses: Jackson Lamb Thriller 1 by Mick Herron

*Soon to be a TV series starring Oscar-award winning actor Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb*

Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award

'The UK's new spy master' Sunday Times

You don't stop being a spook just because you're no longer in the game.

Banished to Slough House from the ranks of achievers at Regent's Park for various crimes of drugs and drunkenness, lechery and failure, politics and betrayal, Jackson Lamb's misfit crew of highly trained joes don't run ops, they push paper.

But not one of them joined the Intelligence Service to be a 'slow horse'.

A boy is kidnapped and held hostage. His beheading is scheduled for live broadcast on the net.

And whatever the instructions of the Service, the slow horses aren't going to just sit quiet and watch . . .

Slow Horses Reviews

Praise for Mick Herron's Jackson Lamb series: * . *
The new spy master * Evening Standard *
Jackson Lamb - the most fascinating and irresistible thriller series hero to emerge since Jack Reacher * Sunday Times *
As a master of wit, satire, insight . . . Herron is difficult to overpraise * Daily Telegraph *
The finest new crime series this Millennium * Mail on Sunday *
The best modern British spy series * Daily Express *
The John le Carre of our generation * Val McDermid *
Mick Herron is the real deal * Irish Times *
If you read one spy novel this year, read Real Tigers. Better still, read the whole series * Andrew Taylor, The Spectator *
Surely among the finest British spy fiction of the past 20 years * Metro *
With his poet's eye for detail, his comic timing and relish for violence, Herron fills a gap that has been yawning ever since Len Deighton retired * Daily Telegraph *
The most enjoyable spy novel in years * Mail on Sunday *
A funny, stylish, satirical, gripping story * Guardian *
I was delighted to discover that this is merely the first in a captivating series -- Christopher Brookmyre * Herald *
The first of his series about MI5 and a character called Jackson Lamb, one of the great monsters of modern fiction. He's a wonderfully cynical writer and there's a lot of dark humour in it. I'm not clever enough to write this sort of thing -- Bernard Cornwell * Daily Express *
I was delighted to discover Mick Herron's riotous Slow Horses series about the black sheep of MI5 -- Nick Cohen * Big Issue *
For something really gripping, head for Mick Herron's Jackson Lamb series, in which a sidelined spook and his cohorts battle their way back to the centre of a life of espionage. Begin with Slow Horses and enjoy -- Alex Clark * Observer *
