Real Tigers Summary

Real Tigers: Slough House Thriller 3 by Mick Herron

SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLDSBORO GOLD DAGGER AND THE IAN FLEMING STEEL DAGGER

SHORTLISTED FOR THE THEAKSTON OLD PECULIAR CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR

'If you read one spy novel this year, read Real Tigers' The Spectator

'The finest new crime series this millennium' Mail on Sunday

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 . . .

Real Tigers Reviews

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