SLOW HORSES Slough House, Book 1

by | Read by Gerard Doyle

Mystery & Suspense • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

With Gerard Doyle's unique vocal mix of classical theater training, Estuary English, and a world-weary yet street-smart tone, one can practically feel the cold, rain-slicked streets of London. Certainly, one can sense the anger, loss, and betrayal of all the "slow horses," British intelligence agents who have been put on the back burners of their careers. When a young Pakistani-English college student is kidnapped and British domestic terrorism units start to point fingers, it's left to the slow horses to race into the breach. Doyle creates distinct voices for the many characters and is especially adept at keeping detailed conversations between male and female characters vital and clear. It's hard to know whom to trust in this first entry in Mick Herron's SLOUGH HOUSE series. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
