Real Tigers; Mick Herron (Slough House Book 3)
Catherine Standish knows that chance encounters never happen to spooks.
She's worked in the Intelligence Service long enough to understand treachery, double-dealing and stabbing in the back.
What she doesn't know is why anyone would target her: a recovering drunk pushing paper with the other lost causes in Jackson Lamb's kingdom of exiles at Slough House.
Whoever it is holding her hostage, it can't be personal. It must be about Slough House. Most likely, it is about Jackson Lamb.
And say what you like about Lamb, he'll never leave a Joe in the lurch.
He might even be someone you could trust with your life...
