The Secret Hours, by Mick Herron

Staff Pick


A companion piece to Herron's acclaimed Slough House series, The Secret Hours is both an entertaining piece of espionage fiction and a profound and acerbic look at Britain’s clandestine service. As he delves into this institution, Herron exposes its vulnerability to the machinations of politics, using this as the starting point for moral and philosophical questions about the nature of humanity, and, not incidentally, proving himself the heir to the late, great John le Carré.

A Death in Denmark, by Amulya Malladi

Staff Pick

Imagine Nick Charles (of Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man fame) sleuthing through contemporary Sweden and you get Gabriel Praest, the private detective driving A Death in Denmark.  Just like Nick Charles, Gabriel has  a taste for good music, fine liquor, and even finer clothes. And also just like Charles, he is dogged and determined. Toss in social commentary about Danish immigration laws and some good-old fashioned Nazi hunting and the story flies in this fast-moving Nordic noir.
