From the publisher

*THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER*

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

'The new king of the spy thriller' Mail on Sunday

'Razor-sharp prose, fully formed characters and an underlying pathos make this series the most exciting development in spy fiction since the Cold War' The Times

'We're spies,' said Lamb. 'All kinds of outlandish shit goes on.'

In Slough House memories are stirring, all of them bad. Catherine Standish is buying booze again, Louisa Guy is raking over the ashes of lost love, and new recruit Lech Wicinski, whose sins make him outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process.

And with winter taking its grip Jackson Lamb would sooner be left brooding in peace, but even he can't ignore the dried blood on his carpets. So when the man responsible breaks cover at last, Lamb sends the slow horses out to even the score.

This time, they're heading into joe country. And they're not all coming home.

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGER*

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE THEAKSTON OLD PECULIER CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR*
