“Lamb said, ‘If you had issues with him, I could have spoken to HR. Arranged an intervention.’ He tapped Moody’s shoulder with his foot. ‘Breaking his neck without going through your line manager, that shit stays on your record.”
Mick Herron, Slow Horses

“Those who write the rules rarely suffer their weight.”
Mick Herron, Spook Street

“This was the blissful break when the world seemed a safer place, between the end of the Cold War and about ten minutes later.”
