Dolphin Junction and Bad Actors

We have some news about upcoming Mick Herron releases book releases.

December 7th will live in infamy for being the date Mick Herron’s short story collection Dolphin Junction will be released, according to Amazon US and UK.

The description says –

CWA Gold and Steel Dagger-winner Mick Herron’s short fiction, collected for the first time.

Mick Herron, author of the Slough House novels, is on his way to becoming one of the most critically acclaimed and culturally important crime fiction writers of the twenty-first century. He has been awarded both the Gold and Steel Daggers by the Crime Writers’ Association and has been called “the John Le Carré of the future” (BBC). But Mick Herron does more than “just” write flawlessly suspenseful spy thrillers. He is a craftist of the highest order, irrepressibly versatile in form (novels, novellas, short fiction) and mood (witty, taut, spooky, laugh-out-loud funny), whose “efficient, darkly witty, tipped-with-imagery sentences . . . feel purpose-built to perforate [our] private daze of illiteracy” ( The Atlantic).

Now, for the first time, Herron’s short fiction has been collected into one volume. In Dolphin Junction, devoted fans and future converts alike will find much to amuse, delight, and terrify them. Five standalone nerve wrackingly thrilling crime fiction stories are complemented by four mystery stories featuring the Oxford wife-and-husband detective team of shrewd Zoë Boehm and hapless Joe Silvermann. The collection also includes a peek into the past of Jackson Lamb, irascible top agent at Slough House.

In addition, thanks to a reader of the blog, we have a bit of information about the next Slough House novel. It’s currently listed title on Amazon is Bad Actors, and it’s release date is listed as May 3rd, 2022.

Get your theories ready!
