Twenty years retired, David Cartwright can still spot when the stoats are on his trail. And he's not as defenceless as they might think. Jackson Lamb worked with Cartwright back in the day. He knows better than most that this is no vulnerable old man. 'The old bastard' has raised his grandson with a head full of guts and glory. But far from joining Spook Street, River Cartwright is consigned to Lamb's team of no-hopers at Slough House.

I have listened to the 5th book and equally enjoyed as the first. Excellent series, wonderful characters, Performed perfectly. Dark, funny, brutal, clever, intriguing and just good fun. With a wonderful twist of spook, politics and perhaps a little to close to the truth than we would perhaps like in the political agenda of London.
