Summary

A drop, in spook parlance, is the passing on of secret information. It's also what happens just before you hit the ground. Old spooks carry the memory of tradecraft in their bones, and when Solomon Dortmund sees an envelope being passed from one pair of hands to another in a Marylebone cafe, he knows he's witnessed more than an innocent encounter. But in relaying his suspicions to John Bachelor, who babysits retired spies like Solly for MI5, he sets in motion a train of events that will alter lives.

Perfect companion to Slough House series

A retired asset insists he saw a drop. No one does drops anymore, he's told. It's too old-fashioned. But his MI5 handler, a semi-retired part-timer, asks a friend in Regent's Park for a favor: look up the name of the spy who the assets identified setting off a firestorm that changes the lives of everyone involved. Classic Mick Herron. Spot-on Gerard Doyle narration, as always.

Another nice one.

Another little short one to flesh out the other short one, The List. With The Catch to follow
As usually clever satirical funny writing. Nice plot twists. It’s short but satisfying.
