In this episode I take a closer look at the fourth book in the Slough House series, Spook Street, with Clarissa Aykroyd. We talk about hipsters in Shoreditch, literary references, corporate-speak and Herron’s love for London transport mayhem.
Each month we’ll be exploring a different book in the series. All leading up to the release of Book 7, Slough House.

Fantastic feature on Herron’s Spook Street, and very timely too considering I’m previewing Book #7 Slough House right now.
Well done, Jeff and Clarissa.
Thanks! It’s the guests that make the show and I’ve been very lucky with the ones that have agreed to come on and talk.
A “Cobra” meeting is so called because of it’s location: Cabinet Office Building Room A (COBRA). There is also a Cabinet Office Building Room B, C etc. but no one refers to these. Well, for a start you can’t pronounce them.
