Dear Librarians,

In DEAD LIONS, Jackson Lamb, who presides over Slough House — a dead-end department of the British intelligence service where failed spooks are hung out to dry — uncovers traces of a long-dormant sleeper network whose tendrils extend into his own past. But with the Cold War an ancient memory, why do the sleepers show signs of awakening? And can Lamb's crew stop fighting each other long enough to fight off a common enemy?
