Praise for DEAD LIONS

WINNER OF THE 2013 CWA GOLD DAGGER FOR BEST CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR
A BBC FRONT ROW BEST CRIME NOVEL OF 2013
A TIMES CRIME AND THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR
A SUNDAY TIMES TOP 50 CRIME AND THRILLER BOOK OF THE PAST 5 YEARS
A 2014 BARRY AWARD BEST THRILLER NOMINEE
A 2014 MACAVITY AWARD BEST MYSTERY NOVEL NOMINEE


“Smart, sharp British wit at its finest. A uniquely brilliant take on the British spy novel.”
─Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author of Murder Below Montparnasse

“Funny, clever . . . Genuinely thrilling. The novel is equally noteworthy for its often lyrical prose.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A great romp.”
Jeff Park, BBC Front Row

“Delightful . . . with a dry humor reminiscent of Greene and Waugh.”
Sunday Times, Best Thrillers and Crime Novels of the Past 5 Years

“Clever and funny.”
The Times

“Herron delivers unbeatable entertainment for thriller fans.”
Library Journal, Starred Review


“[A] wickedly clever send-up of the classic British spy novel.”
─Crime Writers' Association

“If you like your suspense novels told with a smart dash of wit and sarcasm, filled with lots of twists and turns, Herron's your man.”
─Shelf Awareness

“[Dead Lions] features some of the twistiest plotlines in crime fiction...[and] is beautifully written but also elegantly structured . . . Ever since finishing Slow Horses, I've been waiting for a possible sequel. Now that it's here, I have the pleasure of experiencing it, along with the pang of having finished it.”
International Noir Fiction

"Herron provides a dour, twisty spy thriller with something for everyone: part post–Cold War miasma, part James Bond heroics, and elliptical withal."
─Kirkus Reviews

Dead Lions is at once a finely wrought thriller and a farcical, fiercely pointed tale of political greed and bureaucratic corruption. Mick Herron writes like a dream.”
─Open Letters Monthly

“A surreal, cynical, yet amusing look at the world of British intelligence . . . a looking-glass world that features KGB undercover agents, a Russian oligarch, a text message on a mobile phone and the ghost of a fabled Soviet spymaster who may not be real . . . an amusing, serpentine plot that takes readers as far from the glamorous world of Ian Fleming’s tuxedo-wearing spy as could be imagined.”
January Magazine, Best Books of 2013

“Full of style and cynical humor . . . Has all the punch-your-lights-out action of a movie thriller.”
Read Me Deadly


Praise for Mick Herron
 
"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way . . . In Herron's book, there is no hiding under the desk."
The New York Times Book Review
 
"Stylish and engaging."
The Washington Post
 
"[A] masterful thriller . . . The intricate plot, coupled with Herron's breezy writing style, results in superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 
"Like a good movie . . . grabs the reader from the first page."
Booklist, Starred Review
