*PRE-ORDER THE NEW NOVEL FROM MICK HERRON, AUTHOR OF THE #1 BESTSELLING SLOUGH HOUSE THRILLERS*


‘Herron is at the summit of a new golden age of spy fiction’ Sunday Times


‘The foremost living spy novelist in the English language’ New Statesman


Monochrome is a busted flush – an inquiry into the misdeeds of the intelligence services, established by a vindictive prime minister but rendered toothless by a wily chief spook. For years it has ground away uselessly, interviewing witnesses with nothing to offer, producing a report with nothing to say, while the civil servants at its helm see their careers disappearing into a black hole.


And then the OTIS file falls into their hands . . .


What secrets does this hold that see a long-redundant spy being chased through Devon’s green lanes in the dark? What happened in a newly reunified Berlin that someone is desperate to keep under wraps? And who will win the battle for the soul of the secret service – or was that decided a long time ago?


Spies and pen-pushers, politicians and PAs, high-flyers, time-servers and burn-outs . . . They all have jobs to do in the daylight.


But what they do in the secret hours reveals who they really are.
