*Picked as a 'best thriller of all time' by The Times* PRE-ORDER SLOUGH HOUSE THE LASTEST IN MICK HERRON'S BESTSELLING SERIES *Soon to be a TV series starring Oscar-award winning actor Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb* 'The new king of the spy thriller' Mail on Sunday 'Razor-sharp prose, fully formed characters and an underlying pathos make this series the most exciting development in spy fiction since the Cold War' The Times Catherine Standish knows that chance encounters never happen to spooks. She's worked in the Intelligence Service long enough to understand treachery, double-dealing and stabbing in the back. What she doesn't know is why anyone would target her: a recovering drunk pushing paper with the other lost causes in Jackson Lamb's kingdom of exiles at Slough House. Whoever it is holding her hostage, it can't be personal. It must be about Slough House. Most likely, it is about Jackson Lamb. And say what you like about Lamb, he'll never leave a joe in the lurch. He might even be someone you could trust with your life . . . SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLDSBORO GOLD DAGGER AND THE IAN FLEMING STEEL DAGGER SHORTLISTED FOR THE THEAKSTON OLD PECULIAR CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR 'As a master of wit, satire, insight... Herron is difficult to overpraise' Daily Telegraph 'Irresistible writing ... ironclad storytelling and off-kilter humour' Financial Times 'Mick Herron's novels are a satirical chronicle of modern Britain . . . in their gleefully shocking way, his books reflect the trajectory of the nation' Economist

What a find! . . . I think Herron's is the next big name in crime fiction * Literary Review * Rather as if Philip Larkin or Alan Bennett had had a go at spy fiction * Sunday Times * Sardonically funny and pleasingly complex * Independent * Think Le Carre with fewer posh people and laugh-out-loud funny. Mick Herron is the real deal * Irish Times * A pulsating spy thriller * Daily Express * Herron fills a gap that has been yawning ever since Len Deighton retired * Daily Telegraph * A thriller that moves Herron close to the class of Graham Greene * Daily Mail * Surely among the finest British spy fiction of the past 20 years * Metro * Real Tigers has revitalised the spy thriller genre * Sunday Express * If you read one spy novel this year, read Real Tigers. Better still, read the whole series * Andrew Taylor, The Spectator * Herron's Slough House novels are the finest new crime series this Millennium * Mail on Sunday *
