Publisher's Summary

London’s Slough House is where disgraced MI5 spies go to while away what’s left of their washed-up careers. Now they have a chance at redemption. An old Cold War-era spy is found dead on a bus outside Oxford, far from his usual haunts. Slough House’s head honcho, the despicable, irascible Jackson Lamb is convinced Dickie Bow was murdered.

As the agents dig into the circumstances, they uncover a shadowy tangle of ancient Cold War secrets that seem to lead back to a man named Alexander Popov, who is either a Soviet bogeyman or the most dangerous man in the world. How many more people will have to die to keep those secrets buried?

    "Good Brit MI5 drama"

    There is a plodding nature about the series about the Slow Horses of Slough house which is captivating. It is a little like Le Carre, with more humour. I enjoyed it.

    "Very clever story"

    I struggled a little to get all the characters straight in my head to start but as the story unfolds the different roles became clear. Very clever, lots of twists, I couldn't put it down.

    "No John Le Carre!"
    What did you like best about Dead Lions? What did you like least?

    I liked the idea behind the book, it was a good premise, but failed to follow through. I disliked some of the characters and found others badly drawn so had no interest in them.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Seán Barrett?

    He was pleasant enough.


    Did Dead Lions inspire you to do anything?

    Return to quality writers of the genre. Re listening to Le Carre confirmed how sketchily written this was and how little I cared for the characters.

    "Terrific"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book. It was my first thriller in some time and was a great choice. Sean Barrett is a fantastic narrator, bringing enormous character and humour to the dialogue. I will definitely be seeking this narrator and author again,
