Reviews

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