Published: Viking - October 22nd, 2019

Fans of Le Carre will be happy with this latest. Set in contemporary times- as in Brexit limbo for the UK and a Trump-led USA and including the obligatory Russian intrigue-- it's a fun "what if" scenario with the old MI6 as a backdrop. This is a standalone book, but a good romp for fans of Le Carre or British intelligence mysteries.

The Sixth Slough House British intelligence thriller from Mick Herron doesn't disappoint! If you liked the others you'll enjoy this latest installment, and if you're new to the series it's okay to start with any of them (although you'll want to eventually go back to the first few for the backstories). The usual cast of agents-as-damaged goods but they're endearing and smart and brave, and you never know who will make it through to the end of the novel... either as an agent or alive.

William Boyle has a gift for writing what happens on the outskirts of the events that would make up most modern mysteries and thrillers. He's created such a defined and populated, unique version of Brooklyn, and you'll feel like you know these characters instantly. This book is also hilarious and so sweet. William Boyle has quickly become one of my favorite writers, all of his books are wonderful!
