Real Tigers by Mick Herron

adventurous dark funny mysterious fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Mick Herron’s Slough House series featuring Jackson Lamb is a fast-moving and entertaining antidote to the perfectly polished, slick, and smooth characters like James Bond and his ilk.  Best of all, Herron clearly likes and respects his female characters, even the sneaky, conniving ones.
