In the third book of the series, Real Tigers, Mick Herron continues to mesmerise readers with his masterful storytelling and razor-sharp dialogue. The disgraced MI5 agents of Slough House find themselves embroiled in a dangerous conspiracy that threatens not only their own lives but the security of the entire nation.

As the tension escalates, the enigmatic and flawed spymaster, Jackson Lamb, must rally his motley crew of outcasts to uncover the truth behind a series of deadly events. With their unique set of skills and questionable loyalties, these "slow horses" navigate treacherous waters where nothing is as it seems. Herron effortlessly delves into the complexities of espionage, delving deep into the psyches of his characters and exposing their fears, hopes, and hidden agendas.

The dilapidated Slough House serves as the backdrop for these thrilling tales of espionage. Once the destination for promising spies, it now acts as a dumping ground for agents who have made serious mistakes. Within its decaying walls, Herron paints a vivid picture of a dysfunctional workplace where the "slow horses" bide their time, waiting for a chance at redemption.

The intriguing dynamic between the characters brings a refreshing twist to the espionage genre. Each member of the Slough House team possesses unique strengths, flaws, and secrets that add depth and complexity to the narrative. From the grizzled and unorthodox Lamb to the ambitious yet troubled River Cartwright, Herron crafts a cast of unforgettable characters that readers will root for, despite their many faults.

What sets the Slough House Series apart is Mick Herron's deft blend of dark humour and spine-tingling tension. He expertly balances heart-pounding action sequences with sharp-witted banter, providing relief from the gripping suspense while still propelling the narrative forward.

The author's sharp prose and knack for character development keep readers on the edge of their seats. Each chapter is a mosaic of intrigue, secrets, and unexpected twists that will leave you guessing until the very end. Herron's meticulous attention to detail and rich storytelling immerse readers in a world where trust is scarce, and betrayal lies around every corner.

    Slow Horses
    This is Jackson Lamb's kingdom: a dumping ground for spies who've screwed up. Once high fliers, they're now slow horses, condemned to a life of pushing paper as punishment for crimes of drugs and drunkenness, lechery and failure, politics and betrayal. In drab and mildewed offices, these highly trained spies moan and squabble, stare at the walls, and dream of better days - not one of them joined the Intelligence Service to be a slow horse, and the one thing they have in common is their desire to be back in the action.

    So when a young man is kidnapped and held hostage, his beheading scheduled for live broadcast on the net, the slow horses aren't going to just sit quietly and watch. And unless they can prove they're not as useless as they're thought to be, a public execution is going to echo round the world.

    Dead Lions
    On Dickie's phone Lamb finds the last message he ever left, which hints that an old-time Moscow-style op is being run in the Intelligence Service's back-yard. Once a spook, always a spook, and even being dead doesn't mean you can't uncover secrets.

    Dickie Bow might have tailed his last target, but Lamb and his crew of no-hopers are about to go live.

    Real Tigers
    What she doesn't know is why anyone would target her.

    So whoever's holding her hostage, it can't be personal. It must be about Slough House. Most likely, it's about Jackson Lamb. And say what you like about Lamb, he'll never leave a joe in the lurch.

    He might even be someone you could trust with your life.

    Spook Street
    The 'Old Bastard' raised his grandson to be a hero, not a slow horse. Now, far from joining the myths and legends of Spook Street, River Cartwright is part of Jackson Lamb's team of pen-pushing no-hopers at Slough House. Which doesn't mean he won't ditch everything and go rogue when his grandfather comes under threat.

    Lamb worked with Cartwright back in the day, and knows better than most that this is no innocent old man. So when a panic button raises the alarm at Intelligence Service HQ, it's Lamb who's called on to identify the body. And it's Lamb who'll do whatever's necessary to protect an agent in peril.

    London Rules
    At Regent's Park, the Intelligence Service HQ, new First Desk Claude Whelan is learning the job the hard way.

    Tasked with protecting a beleaguered Prime Minister, he's facing attack from all directions: from the showboating MP who orchestrated the Brexit vote, and now has his sights set on Number Ten; from the showboat's wife, a tabloid columnist, who's crucifying Whelan in print; and especially from his own deputy, Lady Di Taverner, who's alert for Claude's every stumble. Meanwhile, the country's being rocked by an apparently random string of terror attacks.

    Over at Slough House, the last stop for washed up spies, the crew are struggling with personal problems: repressed grief, various addictions, retail paralysis, and the nagging suspicion that their newest colleague is a psychopath. But collectively, they're about to rediscover their greatest strength - making a bad situation much, much worse.

    Joe Country
    In Slough House, the backwater for failed spies, 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.

    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 for killing a slow horse breaks cover at last, Lamb sends his crew out to even the score.

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