Publisher's Summary

Dieter Hess, an aged spy, is dead, and John Bachelor, his MI5 handler, is in deep, deep trouble. Death has revealed that the deceased had been keeping a secret second bank account - and there's only ever one reason a spy has a secret second bank account. The question of whether he was a double agent must be resolved, and its answer may undo an entire career's worth of spy secrets.

Good story - Bad volume setting! Could hardly hear

Narrator was good - volume setting was much too low!
Could hardly hear what was being said

Mick herron and Sean Barrett a marriage made in heaven

A very entertaining short story. I couldn't resist this one and it didn't disappoint. Just look on it as a taster to a brilliant series of 'Spook Books'

Spook Street Quickie

This is a lovely little 'amuse bouche' between main courses. John Bachelor is nobody's leading man but this is more than compensated for by the deliciously devious 'Lady Di' who is on top form - as usual. Well worth a credit.

An interesting plot line, excellently developed into an entertaining mouthful. Well narrated, as always by Sean Barrett.

The Jackson Lamb series is my new favourite

A witty, sharp and entertaining series, I recommend they be read in sequence with this novella as a delightful extra.

Terrific teaser

How affirming to listen to a very well written part of a tale than an interminable hodge podge of mangled plot lines which I have recently endured.
Funny, often lyrical and always requiring full attention, the author has done it again.

Needless to say, the reader can only wish that we could have had "the next part" too. It would be nice to see Ms Taverner trip over.
But by the time this new recruit became a plot line, the team at Slough House would be gone.

Mr Barrett retains the title of the A1 reader of novels.

Very short

Just as you think you’re getting into a cracking story it abruptly comes to an end.

Cannot wait to see where this story goes..

An intriguing intro to another clever and captivating story. Don't be fooled by the titles - there's nothing slow about these horses!

Great spy thriller

What an interesting writer, overflowing with style and originality.
Great plot, great personalities, lots of surprises, LeCarré time shifts too.
Enjoyed it very much.
