Slough House is a dumping ground for members of the intelligence service who've screwed up. Bitterest amongst them is River Cartwright, whose days are now spent transcribing phone conversations. But when a young man is abducted, and threatened to be beheaded live on the Internet, River sees an opportunity to redeem himself.

An old fashioned spy story in the tradition of John le Carre, if a rather more downmarket version. Some highly entertaining characters.
