If you agree, alight at Station South, Levenshulme for Between the Lines, the Station South book club!

This is an informal get together for those who love to read, those who want to read more, those who want to rediscover a love of reading, find new books, share thoughts and opinions, listen to others, feel inspired to pick up a book instead of turning to a screen all over a glass of whatever takes your fancy.

We invite you to Between The Lines Book Club where we will be discussing Slow Horses by Mick Herron. (now a TV series on Apple TV starring Gary Oldman!)

Slough House is the outpost where disgraced spies are banished to see out the rest of their derailed careers. Known as the ‘slow horses’ these misfits have committed crimes of drugs and drunkenness, lechery and failure, politics and betrayal while on duty.

In this drab and mildewed office these highly trained spies don’t run ops, they push paper. Not one of them joined the Intelligence Service to be a slow horse and the one thing they have in common is they want to be back in the action.

When a boy is kidnapped and held hostage, his beheading is scheduled for live broadcast on the net. And whatever the instructions of their masters at the Intelligence Service headquarters, the slow horses aren’t going to just sit quiet and watch.
