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.

Not a bad story but the narrator doesn’t pause at all to signify a change of scene which makes the story incredibly confusing and frustrating. Hard to enjoy!
