Publisher's Summary

Twenty years retired, David Cartwright can still spot when the stoats are on his trail. And he's not as defenceless as they might think.

Jackson Lamb worked with Cartwright back in the day. He knows better than most that this is no vulnerable old man.

'The old bastard' has raised his grandson with a head full of guts and glory. But far from joining Spook Street, River Cartwright is consigned to Lamb's team of no-hopers at Slough House. So it's Lamb they call to identify the body when Cartwright's panic button raises the alarm at Service HQ. And Lamb who will do whatever he thinks necessary to protect an agent in peril....

    "Excellent as always"

    Love the characters. Slough House is a wonderful invention, and is packed with terrific characters you just want to follow and observe. And I love the trade craft.

    A great thriller, like all in this series. Now I just have to wait for the next one.

    "Another scorcher"

    I simply cannot get enough of this series. I'm horrified that I'm going to have to wait until February for the next instalment. What is it with writers? Don't they understand the contemporary need for instant gratification? Pshaw!

    This next step, or should I say stumble, along the path with the slow horses does so at a whip-crack pace. I like the premise of this story too. Yes, it's sometimes far fetched and, as the series has gone on, the characters seem less bungling and more Bond but by now we're on their side anyway and want to see them perk up a bit and not get taken out by slickly professional assassins.

    Sean Barrett is certainly now the voice of the hero Lamb and turns in another great performance.

    My only complaint is the continual use of Americanisms that we British have to stomach: 'hood' 'cops' and I bet the 'BuzzLightyear' quip was a substitution for the colonials - Lamb wouldn't have a clue about 'Toy Story'. It's a British author give us the British publication for god's sake. However, I'm not going to penalise the author or narrator for an annoying corporate decision - only, listener be warned!

    "Great series"
    If you could sum up Spook Street in three words, what would they be?

    Modern take on MI5's miss-fits and wannabes


    What about Seán Barrett’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series of novels. Characters get better and better.

    "Another great book in the series"
    If you could sum up Spook Street in three words, what would they be?

    Imaginative, tense, funny


    What did you like best about this story?

    It built most successfully on the themes and genre of the previous books in the excellent series.


    What about Seán Barrett’s performance did you like?

    He is always reliably good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly because it is fine to come back to it during car journeys. But it certainly never flags and one could listen in one go in the right circumstances.


    Any additional comments?

    Hoping for another in the series.

    An excellent addition to the Slough House series. Just when you think you know what is going on, another twist appears.

    "so pertinent"

    Excellent as always. Sean Barrett is the perfect reader for the dry humour of the story about the dregs of the not so secret services. The creaking of wheels within wheels that turn in response to another atrocity hits London...another one of the many that have happened in London through the years.


    When River's grandfather, "The O.B.", is threatened the danger is brought to Slough House itself and mayhem ensures.

    If you liked the other books in this series and the ghoulish humour does not offend you this is another winner.

    "Audible heroin"

    The Slough House gang are once again brought to life by Sean Barrett. Great story. Jackson Lamb is such a fantastically imagined character. The only drag is that it is such a good story that I binged on it and before I knew it ; it was done!
