All kinds of outlandish shit goes on. In Slough House memories are stirring, all of them bad. Catherine Standish is buying booze again, Louisa Guy is raking over the ashes of lost love, and new recruit Lech Wicinski, whose sins make him outcast even among the slow horses, is determined to discover who destroyed his career, even if he tears his life apart in the process.

So when the man responsible breaks cover at last, Lamb sends the slow horses out to even the score. This time, theyre heading into joe country. And theyre not all coming home.
