Mick Herron’s Slough House series has catapulted him to the top rank of spy novelists at work right now.
First, Mick Herron was kind enough to answer some of my questions in an interview.
I’ve written about my visit to the real location of Slough House. If you’re ever in London I recommend a trip.
It was just announced that AppleTV+ will be airing a adaption of the books. I took a look at what that might mean.
I created a glossary for some of the terms and characters that Herron has used in his novels.
I gathered the first lines of all of Herron’s novels to see what trends or themes we might see.
In preparation for his latest, London Rules, I wrote about his earlier novels looking at the characters, locations, and plots.
