  • Slow burn or damp squib?

    John LeCarre is a hard act to follow without looking silly. True, it is difficult to recreate the seriousness of the Cold War setting, but the higher hurdle is to write so beautifully about the soul. Yet the deadly seriousness of spying is with us again, even if the enemies have, nominally, changed. Herron makes an intelligent attempt at creating spooks for the 21st century. But what an unlovely, charmless bunch they are. Which may prove a problem. One of the reasons I reread, say, Tinker, Tailor is that Smiley's humanity is rewarded with loyalty and respect. Herron's little cast of misfits generate hardly any warmth and no readily discernible humour. It's a good story, but characterisation is thin; it's difficult to get concerned about imperilled cyphers. I will probably try another in the series, but there has to be a reason to care.

  • Interesting yarn, takes me back.

    I found this one intriguing, because it took me back to a world, the edges of which I delicately brushed. Once.

  • Slow Horses

    A really good read. Highly recommend it. I have been looking or an author of this caliber since I ran out of Le Carre and Martin Cruz Smith novels to read.
