About Mick Herron

Mick Herron's first Jackson Lamb novel - the Steel-Dagger nominated Slow Horses - was described as the 'most enjoyable British spy novel in years' by the Mail on Sunday. The second Jackson Lamb novel, Dead Lions, won the 2013 CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger, and was picked by the Sunday Times as one of the best twenty-five crime novels of the past five years. Mick was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and now lives in Oxford.

Review quote

What a find! . . . I think Herron's is the next big name in crime fiction * Literary Review * Rather as if Philip Larkin or Alan Bennett had had a go at spy fiction * Sunday Times * Sardonically funny and pleasingly complex * Independent * Think Le Carre with fewer posh people and laugh-out-loud funny. Mick Herron is the real deal * Irish Times * A pulsating spy thriller * Daily Express * Herron fills a gap that has been yawning ever since Len Deighton retired * Daily Telegraph * A thriller that moves Herron close to the class of Graham Greene * Daily Mail * Surely among the finest British spy fiction of the past 20 years * Metro * Real Tigers has revitalised the spy thriller genre * Sunday Express * If you read one spy novel this year, read Real Tigers. Better still, read the whole series * Andrew Taylor, The Spectator * Herron's Slough House novels are the finest new crime series this Millennium * Mail on Sunday *
