Slough House, by Mick Herron
February 14, 2021 12:11 PM - by Herron, Mick - Subscribe

At Slough House, Brexit has taken a toll. The slow horses have been pushed further into the cold, Slough House has been erased from official records, and its members are dying in unusual circumstances, at an unusual clip. No wonder Jackson Lamb’s crew is feeling paranoid. But are they actually targets? With a new populist movement taking hold of London’s streets and the old order ensuring that everything’s for sale to the highest bidder, the world’s a dangerous place for those deemed surplus. Jackson Lamb and the slow horses are in a fight for their lives as they navigate dizzying layers of lies, power, and death.

That ending! Gah! I didn't see that coming, but in retrospect of course the whole book was leading right there.

This is the 7th full length book in the series if you’re like me and stuck way behind on the waiting list at the library.

Oh no, I might have to get AppleTV. That looks good. Lamb should be larger, but I will accept this version.
