Summary
"Slough House is the MI5 branch where disgraced operatives are reassigned after they've messed up too badly to be trusted with real intelligence work. The 'Slow Horses,' as the failed spies of Slough House are called, are doomed to spend the rest of their careers pushing paper, but they all want back in on the action. When one of their own is kidnapped and held for ransom, the agents of Slough House must defeat the odds, overturning all expectations of their competence, to breach the top-notch security of MI5's intelligence headquarters, Regent's Park, and steal valuable intel in exchange for their comrade's safety"--Dust jacket flap

Summary
In Real Tigers -- which is the 3rd in a series that starts with Slow Horses -- the disgraced MI5 operatives assigned to Slough House are finally back in the game when one of their own is kidnapped. With humor that ranges from "bodily functions to double entendres" (Library Journal), this intricately plotted tale (we'll give no spoilers here) offers a great mix of characters and a lyrical writing style. You might, however, want to start at the beginning of the series for a full explanation of the losers and has-beens who populate Slough House, and how sweet their redemption is. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
