About the Book: Slow Horses: Slough House
Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award Slough House is a dumping
ground for members of the intelligence service whove screwed up: left a service
file on a train, say, blown a surveillance, or become drunkenly unreliable.
Theyre the services poor relations - the slow horses - and most bitter among
them is River Cartwright, whose days are spent transcribing mobile phone
conversations. But when a young man is abducted, and his kidnappers threaten to
behead him live on the internet, River sees an opportunity to redeem himself.
But is the victim who he first appears to be?
