Meanwhile, the country's being rocked by an apparently random string of terror attacks.Over at Slough House, the last stop for washed up spies, the crew are struggling with personal problems: repressed grief, various addictions, retail paralysis, and the nagging suspicion that their newest colleague is a psychopath. But collectively, they're about to rediscover their greatest strength - making a bad situation much, much worse.'Mick Herron is the John le Carré of our generation' Val McDermid'Dazzingly inventive' Sunday Times
