My guest in this week’s podcast is the incomparable spy writer Mick Herron - these days, happily, a less and less well kept secret. He’s the author of the Slough House stories - funny and gripping novels about an awkward squad of failed James Bonds under the aegis of the wonderfully unspeakable Jackson Lamb. The latest is London Rules, and Mick joins me to talk about crap spies, finding a voice, the necessity of killing off the odd main character, and the real life Slough House.
