NEVER VOLUNTEER FOR ACTIVE DUTY . . .

Bob Howard is a low-level techie working for a super-secret government agency. While his colleagues are out saving the world, Bob's under a desk restoring lost data. His world was dull and safe - but then he went and got Noticed.

Now, Bob is up to his neck in spycraft, parallel universes, dimension-hopping terrorists, monstrous elder gods and the end of the world. Only one thing is certain: it will take more than a full system reboot to sort this mess out . . .

This is the first novel in the Laundry Files.

Yet another re-read for a Book Group, and it still stands up well. A mixture of Civil Service bureaucracy, Cold War spycraft, and the Cthulhu mythos, with a dash of wry humour and a dollop of horror. This is the beginning of a very good series. Vollständige Rezension lesen
