Slow Horses by Mick Herron Book Summary

Now an Apple Original series streaming on Apple TV+ starring Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Welcome to the thrilling and unnervingly prescient world of the slow horses. This team of MI5 agents is united by one common bond: They've screwed up royally and will do anything to redeem themselves.

This special tenth-anniversary deluxe edition of a modern classic includes a foreword by the author, discussion questions for book clubs, and an exclusive short story featuring the slow horses.

London, England: Slough House is where washed-up MI5 spies go to while away what’s left of their failed careers. The “slow horses,” as they’re called, have all disgraced themselves in some way to get relegated there. Maybe they botched an Op so badly they can’t be trusted anymore. Maybe they got in the way of an ambitious colleague and had the rug yanked out from under them. Maybe they just got too dependent on the bottle—not unusual in this line of work. One thing they have in common, though, is they want to be back in the action. And most of them would do anything to get there─even if it means having to collaborate with one another.

When a young man is abducted and his kidnappers threaten to broadcast his beheading live on the Internet, the slow horses see an opportunity to redeem themselves. But is the victim really who he appears to be?

Book. Good Book.

Meh. The skipping between characters without warning or any indication was annoying rather than clever. I got the feeling that the author was focused on sounding like a good writer rather than focusing on immersing the reader in the book. Possibly would enjoy more if I was British?

Great series!. I’ve read 5 of the books in this series, and love them all. I feel like I’m friends of the misfits in Slough House, and would really enjoy working with Jackson Lamb. He is brilliant, but also hilarious.

Clever and dark. This isn’t LeCarre, but what is? Lively, interesting, and well-written.

Despite the changes it helps make sense of the tv show. Meaning this — the story as told in the book is pretty much the same as the tv show of the same name. Reading the book fills in a lot that couldn’t fit in the series probably because the endings are so different. I’m not going to spoil the story for anyone planning to view the show but I think it’s best to view first and then read the book. The book adds a lot to the story.

Unreadable. I’m not sure who would enjoy this. I made it through about 50 pages. every character is unpleasant, angry and hopeless. I quit.

Great characters - Even better plotting. The author is a genius who can create beautifully flawed characters, put them in an awful mess, and see how they do under real pressure. There is redemption in Slough House as there sometimes is in the real world.

SLOW. If you love drawn out story line, this is a must read. Super dry, not even funny, and despite the ratings, it’s not exiting at all. If you want action, PASS ON THIS ONE!!

Slow Horses. Intriguing! Very witty and pointedly wry. Herron's wonderful use of language and plot beckoned me into his next adventure! I am now an ardent fan.
