Once more we encounter the flawed, barely effective and supposedly incompetent misfits under the dubious management and protection of the wonderfully grotesque Jackson Lamb. The misfiring spooks head into trouble with threats to the royal family and political shenanigans afoot. Combines a touch of the ridiculous, a disconcerting threat and a genuine sense of loss as the book develops. A class act.
