*FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING SLOUGH HOUSE THRILLERS*

Mick Herron is ‘Britain’s finest living thriller writer’ (Sunday Express) and author of the bestselling and award-winning Slough House novels. Dolphin Junction captures his trademark tension, humour, and suspense in the form of short fiction, collected here for the first time.

When a wife leaves her husband under suspicious circumstances, he sets off in search for her, unprepared for the guilty secrets he’s about to drag back into the light.

A man is tempted by a luxury apartment with a top-of-the-range kitchen. But there is a heavy price to pay for this glamorous new life.

A couple go on a hike through the Derbyshire countryside, to ignore the fact their marriage is on the rocks.

And there is a peek into the past of Jackson Lamb, the boss of Slough House, as well as stories featuring the shrewd detective Zoë Boehm and her hapless partner Joe Silvermann.

Dolphin Junction displays Herron’s craft for deftly plotted storytelling, dark wit, and memorable twists.

‘Mick Herron is an incredible writer and if you haven’t read him yet, you NEED to’ Mark Billingham

‘Mick Herron is one of the finest writers of his generation’ Steve Cavanagh

Reviews

Jake Kerridge, The Sunday Telegraph
Nothing in this particular stocking could be described as filler, in fact: every story, whether sweet or dark, is a delicious treat.
The Times
An early Christmas bonus.
Guardian
Definitely one for the Christmas list, Dolphin Junction is both a perfect introduction to the creator of monstrous spymaster Jackson Lamb and a treat for Slough House aficionados.
NB Magazine
One of our top spy writers proves he can write crime short stories which are as brilliant as his novels. Slough House features but this is an eclectic mix of tales. Herron is a one off.
