Thank you for the recommendation, I am sure I have passed the buildings you refer to. I will seek out the novel after I have read Mr Norris Changes Trains which I borrowed on Saturday after a recent visit to Berlin.


I couldn't agree more with what you say. My daughter lent me the first book, saying I would like it, and I've now devoured all the rest. What I love is that the books are both thrilling spy stories, with plenty of action and *funny*. Jackson Lamb is a great comic character.


I've passed those buildings any number of times on my way to concerts and barely given them a glance. Mr C has been most reliable with recommendations in the past - so I'll be ordering this.

Mr Cornflower

Thanks Mary - the first in the series is "Slow Horses". Bonne lecture!

Mary Ronan Drew

Slow Horses is splendid. Lined up behind it are The Crown Agent and The Secret Life of Books. Thank you for the recommendations.


Thanks very much for the heads up on this series - I really enjoyed Slow Horses and it's a race to see if Dead Lions arrives at my local library before they close the library down, as they have in surrounding (Canadian) cities.


Good luck with getting the book, Michele, and all good wishes generally.
