Dead Lions

Author:

Mick Herron

Synopsis:

London's Slough House is where disgraced MI5 spies go to while away what's left of their washed-up careers. Now they have a chance at redemption. An old Cold War-era spy is found dead on a bus outside Oxford, far from his usual haunts. Slough House's head honcho, the despicable, irascible Jackson Lamb is convinced Dickie Bow was murdered. As the agents dig into the circumstances, they uncover a shadowy tangle of ancient Cold War secrets that seem to lead back to a man named Alexander Popov, who is either a Soviet bogeyman or the most dangerous man in the world. How many more people will have to die to keep those secrets buried?

London Rules

Author:

Mick Herron

Synopsis:

Tasked with protecting a beleaguered prime minister, Regent's Park's First Desk, Claude Whelan, is facing attack from all directions: from the showboating MP who orchestrated the Brexit vote and now has his sights set on Number Ten; from the MP's wife, a tabloid columnist who's crucifying Whelan in print; and especially from his own deputy, Lady Di Taverner, who's alert for Claude's every stumble. Meanwhile, someone's trying to kill Roddy Ho. And over at Slough House, the crew are struggling with personal problems: repressed grief, various addictions, retail paralysis, and the nagging suspicion that their newest colleague is a psychopath. But collectively, they're about to rediscover their greatest strength - that of making a bad situation much, much worse. It's a good job Jackson Lamb knows the rules, because they aren't going to break themselves.

This Is What Happened

Author:

Mick Herron

Synopsis:

Twenty-six-year-old Maggie Barnes is someone you would never look at twice. Living alone in a month-to-month sublet in London, she has no family but an estranged sister, no boyfriend or partner, and not much in the way of friends. Working in the postal department of a large corporate office, she struggles to make ends meet. Maggie is just the kind of person who could vanish from the face of the earth without anyone taking notice. Or just the kind of person MI5 needs to thwart an international plot that puts all of Britain at risk. They need someone inconspicuous to infiltrate her office and interface with the security system, a simple-seeming task. Maggie has the chance to be a hero - but the stakes are about to escalate beyond anything she ever dreamed of...

Author:

Tami Hoag

Synopsis:

After moving to the Cold Case unit, Detective Nikki Liska misses the rush of pulling an all-nighter and the sense of urgency when hunting a murderer on the loose - her current homicide case dates back twenty-five years, and there is little hope of finding the killer. Most of all, she misses her old partner, Detective Sam Kovac... Sam is having an even harder time adjusting to Nikki's absence, saddled with a green new partner younger than pieces of his own wardrobe. But he is distracted from his troubles by an especially brutal double homicide: a middle-aged husband and wife hacked to death in their home with a samurai sword. One woman might link these mysteries - but she is being watched. Can Liska and Kovac find her before it is too late?
