Notes:
London's Slough House is where disgraced MI5 operatives are reassigned to spend the rest of their careers pushing paper. But when one of these fallen spies is kidnapped by a former soldier bent on revenge, the agents must breach the defenses of Regent's Park to steal valuable intel in exchange for their comrade's safety. The kidnapping is only the tip of the iceberg, however, as the agents uncover a larger web of intrigue that involves not only a group of private mercenaries, but also the highest authorities in the Security Service. After years spent as the lowest on the totem pole, the spies suddenly find themselves caught in the midst of a conspiracy that threatens not only the future of Slough House, but of MI5 itself.

another winner from Mick Herron featuring the Secret Service's losers and their ultra-cynical boss Jackson Lamb. I just hope that Herron isn't basing his books on reality or personal experience like le Carre. Because Herron's creations are NOTHING like le Carre's spies and if the Secret Service IS full of characters like these, then we're in trouble. Or maybe not - if results are anything to go by...
