About this deal

Giving him a chance to save face, Taverner offers Lamb's team the opportunity to signal to her man the raid is about to commence, allowing him to escape with Hassan. Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb, the head of Slough House and slovenly, rude, and apparently drunk most of the time. River visits his grandfather, who reveals Hobden was blacklisted when his name appeared on a leaked donor list of the British Patriotic Party, and blamed MI5 for his troubles.

Meanwhile, Claude Whelan, current First Desk, is caught between a weak PM and a populist MP flushed from a successful Brexit referendum. At the same time the writing is so clear and the narrative so cleverly conducted that I didn’t have to re-read any of it understand what was going on. Driving out of London, Zeppo and Larry reveal that they never intended to go through with killing Ahmed and entertain the idea of releasing him, becoming increasingly concerned with Curly's erratic behaviour and rhetoric. Running out of petrol, Curly announces he still plans to behead Ahmed and die resisting arrest, but Zeppo takes over after pulling a handgun he secretly took from Black's corpse. It is revealed that Moe (real name Alan Black) was Taverner's mole but was found out and murdered by Curly, who then fled with Zeppo, Larry and Hassan.Dickie Bow was a talented streetwalker once, good at following people and bringing home their secrets. His kidnapping and intended rescue is an unsanctioned false-flag operation masterminded by Taverner herself to potentially increase cooperation with Pakistan as well as neutralise and intimidate the far-right.

Webb reveals his planned meet with Pashkin to Taverner, who reluctantly approves despite the UK's agreement with Moscow to keep intelligence operatives away from Nevsky, a critic of the Russian government.

Standish beats Krymov in a game of chess and he reveals it was Katinsky, not Pashkin, who he met with to set up the Webb meeting. When a liaison with Russian villains takes a fatal turn, our hapless heroes must overcome their individual failings and raise their spy game in a race to prevent a catastrophic incident.
