    • The best spy series you've never heard of
    • The slow horses are MI5's outcasts. Spies who have screwed up so monumentally, or who are so odious, that they have been exiled to Slough House in the hope they quit. Mick Herron has been hailed as John le Carre's successor for good reason. His writing is intelligent and witty, and he has an excellent ear for dialogue. Best of all, this is book one in a magnificent series, so there's plenty more where that came from!

    • Pure listening pleasure
    • Tom Hiddleston's narration of this rollicking tale set in Revolutionary France is simply fantastic. An actor who is a dab hand at impersonation, he goes from the silken, menacing tones of the terrifying Count, to the idiotic, fatuous tones of the Marquis on the turn of a dime. Then he pivots to the brave but frightened Sidonie, the scrappy young Roma boy Yann, and onward. A masterclass in narration, and a gripping tale to boot!

This is fantasy at its very best.
