Lions on Air

My friend and fellow spy fiction fan Jeff, of spywrite.com, has started a podcast dedicated to Mick Herron's Slough House series of novels and novellas about disgraced MI5 agents sent to work in a dead-end office under the ghastly Jackson Lamb in the hope that they'll get fed up and quit.

Jeff kindly asked me to join him for one episode, and I picked Dead Lions, the second book in the series and probably my favourite.

It will be readily apparent that I did my homework at the last minute, having a quick flick through half an hour before we spoke rather than studiously re-reading the whole novel as I fully intended to. We spend a lot of time talking about the strangeness of small English towns, a section callmemadam will find full of factual inaccuracies and downright lies, not to mention slander.
