The death of Tom Bettany’s estranged twenty-six-year-old son brings him back to London. His return sparks the interest of everyone from mobsters to MI5 officers. He may have thought he left his old life as a spy behind, but nobody just walks away.

Tom Bettany is working at a meat-processing plant in France when he gets the voice mail from an Englishwoman he doesn’t know telling him that his estranged son is dead. Liam was smoking dope on his London balcony when he fell. Now for the first time since he cut all ties years ago, Bettany returns home to London to find out the truth about his son’s death.

It may be the guilt he feels about losing touch with his son that’s gnawing at him, or maybe he has actually put his finger on a labyrinthine plot; either way he is going to get to the bottom of the tragedy, no matter whose feathers he has to ruffle. But there are many people who are interested to hear Bettany is back in town, from incarcerated mob bosses to the highest echelons of MI5.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Smart prose, smart plotting.”

    Toronto Star

  • “Smartly written with biting British wit.”

    Fresh Fiction

  • “In this superb thriller, CWA Gold Dagger Award–winner Herron returns to the secretive world of British intelligence featured in his two Slough House novels…Well-drawn characters complement plotting that’s convoluted but never opaque or formulaic. Herron may be the most literate, and slyest, thriller writer in English today.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Herron strips his revenge story to the bone, paring away unnecessary characters, episodes, speeches, and gestures to produce a violent little elegy that grows both more clever and more sour as it hurtles along.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Gerard Doyle convincingly captures Bethany’s world-weary, cautious outlook in this smartly constructed story…Doyle manages to make Bethany and the other key figures sound simultaneously known and unknowable. The many memorable characters—Bethany himself, the eccentric millionaire game developer who employed Bethany’s son, Dame Ingrid Tearney of ‘The Service,’ and a whole host of others—are so darkly intriguing and fully dimensional that it’s a shame author Mick Herron is calling this a stand-alone novel. These characters and their narrator both deserve an encore.”
