Publisher's Summary

Alex Schwartz had a great job and a promising future - until he caught an unfortunate bout of vampirism and agreed (on pain of death) to join the Laundry, Britain's only counter-occult secret intelligence agency. His first assignment is in Leeds - his old hometown. But the thought of telling his parents he's lost his job, let alone their discovering his 'condition', is causing Alex almost as much anxiety as his new lifestyle of supernatural espionage. His only saving grace is Cassie Brewer, a student from the local Goth Festival who flirts with him despite his fear of sunlight (and girls). But Cassie has secrets of her own - secrets that make Alex's nightlife seem positively normal.

My favourite book this year

OK, so it's not fair. This is a book that's about Leeds, where I've lived for most of my adult life, and also mentions the town I grew up in. So it's got a big advantage on that front. However I don't think I've enjoyed another book this year. Also, I'm not sure there's a better Laundry Files book. This seems like what all the others have been building to, so far, and I don't think Delirium Brief quite matches it.

Without spoiling things, at least for those who haven't been near the books: This is the first book that directly includes a Case Nightmare Rainbow scenario. Seeing how the Laundry deals with that is exciting, filled with tension, full of bureaucratic mishaps and brave efforts against the darkness.

Absolutely wonderful stuff

Best series of books that I have ever listened to. Witty and creative plot, love the whole "life as a civil service magic specialist" thing.

Wonderful
