Summary
"What happens when an old spook starts to lose his mind? Do the Services have a retirement home for people who know too many secrets but don't remember they're secrets? Or does someone come to take care of the senile spy for good? These are the questions River Cartwright must ask himself as his grandfather--David Cartwright, a Cold War-era operative--starts to forget to wear pants, and starts believing everyone in his life is someone sent by Services to watch him. However, River has other things to worry about. A bomb goes off in the middle of a flash mob performance in a busy shopping center and kills forty innocent civilians. The agents of Slough House have to figure out who is behind this act of terror before the situation escalates"--

Summary
This one's a tough one to talk about without giving too much away. But if you're unfamiliar with the Slough House series (this is the 4th entry), you should know that it's about English spies who have been forcibly desk-bound. Not content to just fade away, they manage to get involved in plenty of escapades (start with Slow Horses if you want to get in at the beginning). Here, failed spook River Cartwright is worrying about his grandfather's increasing senility and paranoia (it's causing him to spill secrets from his own -- spectacular -- career as a spy). Dark humor and engaging characters abound in both this book and the series as a whole. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
