Praise for Nobody Walks

2015 Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award Shortlist
Nancy Pearl Best Reads of 2015
Booklist Best Crime Novel of 2015
One of Booklist's 101 Best Crime Novels of the Last Decade

Fast-moving and deeply cynical, yet thoroughly heartfelt, this is a first-rate modern thriller.
--Daily Mail

Blackly comic.
--The Sunday Times

English author Mick Herron writes thrillers that are smart in the places that count. Smart prose, smart plotting.
--Toronto Star

Enough suspense and action to keep thriller fans happy but it also has a strong psychological component. The final revelation in this story will it will knock you backwards.
--Daily Star

A deep evocation of the consequences of both violence and revenge.
--Los Angeles Review of Books

[A] superb thriller . . . Herron may be the most literate, and slyest, thriller writer in English today.
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

Herron's remarkable novel has enough suspense, action, and deductive dazzlement to keep genre fans happy. But be warned: these are deep waters, and this is not nodding-off, night-table reading.
Booklist, Starred Review

Herron strips his revenge story to the bone, paring away unnecessary characters, episodes, speeches and gestures to produce a violent little elegy that grows both more clever and more sour as it hurtles along.
--Kirkus Reviews

The Brits seem to have a lock on clapped-out intelligence agents, and this savvy literary stand-alone by the author of the 2013 Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger-winning Dead Lions is an affectionate nod to the likes of John le Carré.
─Library Journal

Nobody Walks is a very different kind of thriller: more Richard Stark than John Le Carre. It's stripped down and raw; a satisfying, immersive thriller, bold and brutal in its simplicity.
--Pages & Pages Books, Australia

[Herron] writes with uncommon grace about a man who has no illusions.
--Reviewing the Evidence

[A] beautiful, bleak novel.
--Criminal Element

[A] complex character-driven thriller.
--Stop! You're Killing Me

Tough and melancholy--a story of remorse and revenge that asks if it is ever too late for a man to make up the lost years.
--Life Is Story

This is a more human story--a tragedy, actually--and Bettany is given no easy ride.
--Crime Fiction Lover

Smartly written with biting British wit.
--Fresh Fiction

Praise for DEAD LIONS


"Smart, sharp British wit at its finest. A uniquely brilliant take on the British spy novel."
─Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author of Murder Below Montparnasse

"Funny, clever . . . Genuinely thrilling. The novel is equally noteworthy for its often lyrical prose."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Delightful . . . with a dry humor reminiscent of Greene and Waugh."
Sunday Times, Best Thrillers and Crime Novels of the Past 5 Years

"A great romp."
Jeff Park, BBC Front Row

"Clever and funny."
The Times

"Herron delivers unbeatable entertainment for thriller fans."
Library Journal, Starred Review

"[A] wickedly clever send-up of the classic British spy novel."
─Crime Writers' Association

"If you like your suspense novels told with a smart dash of wit and sarcasm, filled with lots of twists and turns, Herron's your man."
─Shelf Awareness
