Praise

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 Carré.”
—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
