Anmeldelser

«Herron does not seek to be John le Carre - his is a wryer, more ironic style; faster, more down to earth, with rapid prose that grabs you by the throat. If you haven't read him yet, do so now»

Daily Mail

«The best thriller writer in Britain today»

Daily Express

«This series is bitingly intelligent, light of touch and frequently hilarious»

Observer

«Every bit as captivating as its predecessors . . . like a pin-sharp sitcom that happens to include murder and high politics, they purr along on the gracelessness and ineptitude of the self-deluding Slow Horses, the unmatchable Lamb, and the crackling writing that has made all six in the series unmissable»

Big Issue

«A delight - an ingeniously plotted thriller, delivered in bone dry, sublimely sardonic style»

Sunday Mirror

«Herron's morbidly witty backdrop hosts incisive storytelling with a rich mix of engaging characters»

Financial Times

«Well observed, angry and deeply sad, Joe Country is fundamentally about injustice . . . It is a rare novelist who can make such unrelenting misery so funny»

TLS

«Herron's running jokes with language are part of the fun, and his corpulent, politically incorrect and scatalogically creative eminence noir Jackson Lamb is the icing on the cake»

The Times

«If you haven't yet immersed yourself in the world of Slough House, the arena for Herron's jaded and thoroughly imperfect spies, you've a treat in store . . . Combining espionage, ennui and deadpan humour, they set a new bar for spy fiction»

FT, Books of the Year

«Mick Herron is fast becoming the go-to author for British espionage . . . Aficionados can expect Herron's trademark snappy dialogue, memorably flawed characters and sharp political observation»

Guardian

«Herron is superior to the vast majority of thriller writers at their best, and there's no shortage here of reliable treats ranging from messy, inept gunfights to brutally sarcastic dialogue»

Sunday Times

«Mick Herron's Slough House spy thrillers are by now, one of the least well-kept secrets in espionage fiction. Everyone with even half an eye on the genre knows he is somewhere near the top . . . Herron is a fine, often glorious sentence-by-sentence writer, and fiercely funny with his dialogue . . . a hugely satisfying addition to the series»

Literary Review

«A complex, accomplished novel by the best thriller writer in Britain today»
