Teaser Tuesday – DEAD LIONS by Mick Herron

Dead Lions by Mick HerronDead Lions by Mick Herron is set for release on 7 May 2013 from Soho Press.

This is Herron’s seventh novel, and the second of his titles to feature the ‘slow horses’ in London’s Slough House, a place where the washed-up MI5 spies go to while away what’s left of their failed careers.

My teaser:

“The Spooks’ Zoo was Berlin, back when the cages had just been unlocked, and frightened thugs were pouring from the woodwork like beetles from an upturned log. At least twice a day, some sweating would-be asset was at the door claiming to have the crown jewels in a cardboard suitcase: defence details, missile capability,  toxic secrets — and yet, for all the flurry of activity, the writing was on the newly dismantled Wall: everyone’s past had been blown away, but so had Dickie Bow’s future.”

I was a huge fan of the British TV series Spooks and I love a good spy novel.
