Publisher's Summary

If Spook Street is where spies live, Joe Country is where they go to die.

In Slough House, the London outpost for disgraced spies of MI5, 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. 

Meanwhile, in Regent's Park, Diana Taverner's tenure as First Desk is running into difficulties. If she's going to make the Service fit for purpose, she might have to make deals with a familiar old devil....

And 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 breaks cover at last, Lamb sends the slow horses out to even the score.

Really outstanding series. Perfectly read.

I really don't know what to compare theses to but have flown through them all as soon as they're released.
Dark stories. Lamb is terrific. The humor! More fun than LeCarre I think though in that ballpark with him and Deighton.
They seem old fashioned. Would love a book or two with Lamb as a young Joe back in the good ole days, as he might say with a snort.

Kicked it up a notch

But lost his sense of humor
Have been following series
And each book is more complex
and well written
But this story is relentless darkness
Hope the light breaks through for
The next slow horses outing

Getting a wee bit repetitive but.....

......It’s still wickedly plotted and funny. Even though a bit far fetched and somewhat repetitive.
