The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Real Tigers

    London’s Slough House is where disgraced MI5 operatives are reassigned to spend the rest of their spy careers pushing paper. But when one of these “slow horses” is kidnapped by a former soldier bent on revenge, the agents must breach the defenses of Regent’s Park to steal valuable intel in exchange for their comrade’s safety. The kidnapping is only the tip of the iceberg, however, as the agents uncover a larger web of intrigue that involves not only a group of private mercenaries but also the highest authorities in the Security Service. After years spent as the lowest on the totem pole, the slow horses suddenly find themselves caught in the midst of a conspiracy that threatens not only the future of Slough House, but of MI5 itself.

Comment:Real Tigers was a great example of bait and switch. I expected a thriller that showed how a bunch of losers in the MI5 overcome their situation in a, well, thrilling way. Alas, what I read was a slow (it took an hour before the first hint of a plot showed up) grinding rendition of how broken the characters were. Grinding, because the struggles of characters to deal with their issues lasted pages. That's right pages. This is a great example of how not inject a literary sensibility into a non-literary genre. This book was so off-putting and depressing that, like a bad case of indigestion puts one off eating, I had to take a break from reading. <sarcasm>Thanks, Mick Herron.</sarcasm> (e)
