    Good story,lots of late action

    Good story, mired in spy history, convoluted relationships, but rolled into some great action.

    Highly Recommended

    This a spools' story, in the tradition of Len Deighton and John LeCarre (although much better than some of the latest of his) superbly written and the drawn out. It also opens a window of the Brithish character
    I was sorry when I reached the end. Highly recommended for aficionados of the genre.

    Witty and Cynical Spy Novel

    A smart-mouthed version of John Le Carré's jaundiced view of the backstabbing world of international espionage.

    MI-5 has exiled its drunks, incompetents, rule-breakers and assorted screw-ups to the internal Coventry of "Slough House" ("because you might as well have been assigned to [the dismal London suburb of] Slough") and they have inevitably become known as the "Slow Horses" to the rest of Regent's Park elite spies. But some of the slow horses aren't so slow after all, and they catch on pretty quick when some pretty dire hanky-panky is underway at HQ. Fascinating and fun.
