Reviews

Praise for Mick Herron

"Mick Herron is the John le Carr of our generation."
--Val McDermid

"Terrific spy novel . . . Sublime dialogue, frictionless plotting."
--Ian Rankin, via Twitter "Thoroughly gripping espionage, focused on intelligent plotting over action for its own sake--think le Carr , but with a heartier dash of dry humor."
--The Seattle Times "[Herron] is superb at evoking the le Carr -esque air of ennui, cynicism and self-loathing which permeates an intelligence service on its uppers, but which remains--the alternative being too awful to contemplate--duty bound to keep calm and carry on."
--The Irish Times "It's not often a reviewer can say, 'You've never read anything quite like this' but it's a safe encomium to use in the case of Mick Herron. The author's idiosyncratic writing is unique in his genre: the spycraft of le Carr refracted through the blackly comic vision of Joseph Heller's Catch-22."
--Financial Times "Brilliant."
--The Boston Globe "Mick Herron is a master."
--CrimeReads
