Bad Actors Summary:

THE INSTANT #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Herron is at the summit of a new golden age of spy fiction' Sunday Times *Now a major TV series starring Gary Oldman* In MI5 a scandal is brewing and there are bad actors everywhere. A key member of a Downing Street think-tank has disappeared without a trace. Claude Whelan, one-time First Desk of MI5's Regent's Park, is tasked with tracking her down. But the trail leads straight back to Regent's Park HQ itself, with its chief, Diana Taverner, as prime suspect. Meanwhile her Russian counterpart has unexpectedly shown up in London but has slipped under MI5's radar. Over at Slough House, the home for demoted and embittered spies, the slow horses are doing what they do best: adding a little bit of chaos to an already unstable situation. In a world where lying, cheating and backstabbing is the norm, bad actors are bending the rules for their own gain. If the slow horses want to change the script, they'll need to get their own act together before the final curtain. 'A pitch-perfect espionage thriller' Sunday Times 'This is entertainment of the highest class' Literary Review '[Bad Actors] deserves the bouquets that will come its way, and Herron is building a series with lasting resonance' The Times

Bad Actors Summary:

Mick Herron, “the le Carré of the future” (BBC), expands his world of bad spies with an even shadier cast of characters: the politicians, lobbyists, and misinformation agents pulling the levers of government policy. “Confirms Mick Herron as the best spy novelist now working.”—NPR's Fresh Air Now an Apple TV+ series starring Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas. In London's MI5 headquarters a scandal is brewing that could disgrace the entire intelligence community. The Downing Street superforecaster—a specialist who advises the Prime Minister's office on how policy is likely to be received by the electorate—has disappeared without a trace. Claude Whelan, who was once head of MI5, has been tasked with tracking her down. But the trail leads him straight back to Regent's Park itself, with First Desk Diana Taverner as chief suspect. Has Taverner overplayed her hand at last? Meanwhile, her Russian counterpart, Moscow intelligence's First Desk, has cheekily showed up in London and shaken off his escort. Are the two unfortunate events connected? Over at Slough House, where Jackson Lamb presides over some of MI5's most embittered demoted agents, the slow horses are doing what they do best, and adding a little bit of chaos to an already unstable situation . . . There are bad actors everywhere, and they usually get their comeuppance before the credits roll. But politics is a dirty business, and in a world where lying, cheating and backstabbing are the norm, sometimes the good guys can find themselves outgunned.

Rewarding Bad Actors Summary:

"Today the committee continues its oversight of the Federal Government's use of suspension and debarment ... Suspension and debarment can be an effective tool for Federal agencies to ensure contractor performance. Unfortunately, as we will hear today, the suspension and debarment tool often goes unused ... In February of last year, we held a hearing on the operation and use of the Excluded Parties List System. We found that some Government agencies were ignoring Federal regulations by awarding funds to businesses that had been suspended or debarred. We also found that Federal agencies took far too long to suspend or debar, if they did it at all. Now, a year later, it seems little has changed."--P. 1-2.
