Publisher's Summary

A thrilling fourth installment in the CWA Gold Dagger-winning Slough House series. What happens when an old spook loses his mind? Does the Service have a retirement home for those who know too many secrets but don't remember they're secret? Or does someone take care of the senile spy for good? These are the questions River Cartwright must ask when his grandfather, a Cold War-era operative, starts to forget to wear pants and begins to suspect everyone in his life has been sent by the Service to watch him. But River has other things to worry about. A bomb goes off in the middle of a busy shopping center and kills 40 innocent civilians. The agents of Slough House have to figure out who is behind this act of terror before the situation escalates.

    "Best so far"

    This is a wonderful series and with each new book released it just gets better and better. I definitely recommend starting with the first book in the series (and an extra tip: read Mick Herron's book Nobody Walks prior to reading Spook Street). You will have a much better understanding of one of the characters if you do.
    This author excels at character development. You may not like the characters, but you will definitely feel like you come to know them. The plot is exciting and the pacing is spot on. I strongly recommend this series.
    As always, Gerard Doyle's narration is stellar.

    Story
    "Daily life stops for Slow Horses"

    I do this to myself every time: buy the audible version and forsake my own life until I've listened to the end. Herron's Slough House series rises above ordinary thrillers, which I find formulaic and boring, by being character driven while also being as tense as they come. They're also tremendously funny. When Jackson Lamb finally shows up at Slough after a long absence, I cracked up so much that I had to listen to the scene twice.

    There's just enough background so that you can enjoy this book without having read the previous three, but why would you deny yourself the pleasure?

    "Great Series"

    Great writing.

    I appreciate Mr. Herron's writing style - his masterful use of words and tongue-in-cheek humor make listening to his books easy and enjoyable. Each of his books seems to improve upon the other.

    "The Slow Horses Never Dissapoint"

    I have waited for months for this book to appear on Audible. The dialogue is witty and fast paced and the narration is spot-on. My only regret is that I finished it in two days and will have to wait months for the next installment, but I know it will be well worth the wait.

    Story
    "Probably the best to date"
    Where does Spook Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the espionage genre, this rates very highly. The concept is a bit off the wall, but the characters go from strength to strength in each unusual story. I am not happy with some of the obscenity, but it is at least consistent with the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spook Street?

    Just about every time Lamb puts in an appearance is a memorable moment.


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great pacing of the story and a real understanding of each and every character


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of incidents raise a smile - very clever writing as always in this series


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it, read it - good book.
