Dead Lions: Jackson Lamb Thriller 2

£8.99

London’s Slough House is where the washed-up MI5 spies go to while away what’s left of their failed careers. The ‘slow horses’, as they’re called, have all disgraced themselves. Some messed up an op badly and can’t be trusted anymore. Others got in the way of an ambitious colleague and had the rug pulled from under their feet. Maybe they just got too dependent on the bottle. All have one thing in common: they all want to be back in the action and they’ll do anything to get there, even if it means actually cooperating.

*Soon to be a major TV series starring Gary Oldman*

‘The new king of the spy thriller’ Mail on Sunday

In the Intelligence Service purgatory that is Slough House, where spies mockingly called the slow horses are sent to finish what is left of their careers, their boss Jackson Lamb is on his way Oxford. A former spook has turned up dead on a bus.

Not an obvious target for assassination, Dickie Bow was a talented streetwalker back in the day. Good at following people, bringing home their secrets. Dickie was in Berlin with Jackson Lamb. Now Lamb’s got his phone, on it the last secret Dickie ever told, and reason to believe an old-time Moscow-style op is being run in the Intelligence Service’s back-yard.

Once a spook, always a spook, and Dickie was one of their own. To unearth Dickie’s dying secret Jackson Lamb and his crew of no-hopers is about to go live.
