About this deal
Although not part of the Slough House series, Reconstruction, Nobody Walks and The Secret Hours use some of the same characters and provide some character backstory.
Peter Judd, now home secretary, has plans to use the situation for his own ends, but his Tiger Team have motives of their own which don’t necessarily ally with Judd’s. You’re in one person’s head, and then you’re in someone else’s, except, unnervingly, you’re hardly ever in Lamb’s.He has been regaled by the old man’s tales of his exploits all his life but they have now become confused and meandering owing to memory loss and dementia. But when he forgets that secrets are supposed to stay hidden, there's suddenly a target on his back.
Former head of MI5, Claude Whelan, has been tasked with tracking her down, but he gets a nasty surprise when the trail leads him straight to First Desk Diana Taverner.Much of the humor comes from Herron’s sharp eye for the way bureaucracies, whether corporate or clandestine, function and malfunction. Meanwhile, River comes closer to answering his most burning question: who engineered his transfer to Slough House? But when he forgets that secrets are supposed to stay hidden, there’s suddenly a target on his back.
