Spies and espionage

Recommended Posts

I've just discovered Mick Herron who seems to have breathed new life into the spy genre. He has invented a believable closed world "Slough House" and a cast of recurring characters, which whilst reminiscent of Le Carre´s Circus, are distinctively contemporary. 


That in turn reminded me of Charles Cummings, and how he managed to rescue the genre from the collapse of the Berlin Wall.


Any other lovers of the genre out there ?
