Reviews

Praise for Slow Horses "It's just great fun." --NPR, Morning Edition "A funny, stylish, satirical, gripping story . . . Memorably seedy characters, sharp dialogue, complex plot. I'm hooked." --The Guardian "This is blackly funny, tense and worryingly plausible. The most enjoyable British spy novel in years." --Mail on Sunday, Five-star Review "[A] deliciously sleazy and sophisticated spy thriller." --The Irish Times "These are terrific novels. The writing is very good. The sense of humour is there, and there's a certain amount of skepticism as well, which keeps you wanting to read." --J.D. Singh, CBC's The Next Chapter "Subtle, detailed and utterly convincing." --The Crime Review (UK) "Slow Horses is a fine thriller . . . it's also a wonderfully funny, farcical, deeply cynical skewering of politics, bureaucrats, turf wars, and the Great Game." --Booklist Praise for Mick Herron "Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way . . . In Herron's book, there is no hiding under the desk." --The New York Times Book Review "The sharpest spy fiction since John Le Carr�." --NPR's Fresh Air "Stylish and engaging." --The Washington Post "[A] masterful thriller . . . The intricate plot, coupled with Herron's breezy writing style, results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Like a good movie . . . grabs the reader from the first page." --Booklist, Starred Review
