Anmeldelser

«Jackson Lamb is the greatest literary creation of this century . . . Herron is master of the metaphor and his extraordinarily well-plotted books are always centred on real-life events»

Nikki May, Great British Life

«An ingeniously structured caper»

Mail on Sunday

«There's no doubting Herron's intelligence. Will he prove to be our age's Anthony Trollope? . . . Few other contemporary thrillers, at any event, would have the confidence to make a plot point of the post-Brexit residency status of some of Lazio's hardcore Curva Nord football fans . . . [Bad Actors] deserves the bouquets that will come its way, and Herron is building a series with lasting resonance. We'll miss the show when some day he decides to bring the curtain down»

The Times

«A pitch-perfect espionage thriller and a double delight for political nerds as it thrusts the slow horses into a Russian intelligence operation in Westminster . . . What Bad Actors shows is that he has inherited le Carré's mantle for using the thriller to dissect the times in which he lives . . . Bad Actors is his most piquant political satire, dripping with tart observations about our unruly rulers»

Tim Shipman, Sunday Times Culture

«Anyone who enjoys Mick Herron's masterful political satires and fantastical spy fiction must be afraid that one day his powers of invention will falter. It hasn't happened yet. Bad Actors is as good as ever . . . This novel contains some serious, hard-hitting emotions alongside the wit, neat plotting, great action scenes, beautiful descriptions and wonderful schoolboy smut (placed in the mouth of Lamb) we have come to associate with Herron's writing. This is entertainment of the highest class»

Literary Review

«Satire at its best along with him being one of the best spy thriller writers around»

Shots Mag

«Britain's finest contemporary thriller series»

Daily Express

«This highly topical, beautifully written, indecently entertaining book maintains the impeccably high standards Herron has set for this essential series»

Irish Times

«What spurs me to keep reading each new instalment is Herron's absurdist voice, which could devolve into cheap cynicism but never does»

New York Times

«Written with the gifted Herron's typical wit, and with Lamb's personality pervading every page, this is the antithesis of the discreet George Smiley»

Daily Mail

«One of the best entries in an outstanding series»

Daily Express (Scotland), Daily Mirror

«What we're reading»

i Paper

«It's beautifully written with a satisfyingly complex plot and an explosive finale»

Daily Record

«Like all of Herron's enthralling series, Bad Actors is both thriller and anti-thriller, subverting and denying the treats you expect from the genre, but then sardonically providing them in a twisted form after all»

Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month

«The foremost living spy novelist in the English language»

John Gray, New Statesman

«Beautifully written with a satisfyingly complex plot and an explosive finale. Herron remains Britain's finest living thriller writer . . . [A] remarkable talent»

Sunday Express

«I roared through Mick Herron's new Slough House novel, Bad Actors, with the odious, odorous genius Jackson Lamb at its heart, and a couple of loathsome main characters who surely only coincidentally resemble well-known British political figures of our time»

Robert Macfarlane

«The man is a genius»

The Spectator

«I love Mick Herron's books, both for what they are - which is: pitch-perfect, fantastically-written, hilariously-funny spy capers - and also for what they say about Britain . . . Herron is not just a top-notch thriller writer, but a satirist of the first order»

Oliver Bulloughs, Waterstones

«Mick Herron's Slough House spy thrillers, about a duff MI5 unit, got me through journeys, despite egregious politicking (the latest, Bad Actors, is in paperback)»

John Lewis-Stempel, Country Life books of the year

«New readers attracted by the TV version of Slow Horses will find Herron at his very best»

Mail on Sunday, Mail Online

«Bad Actors is both thriller and anti-thriller: subverting and denying the treats you expect from the genre, but then providing them in a twisted form after all»

Sunday Times
