User Review  - quiBee - LibraryThing

A fun read. Nameless horrors being looked after by a top secret British agency called the Laundry. Bob is just a minor agent in the agency, his speciality being geek knowledge attached to the arcane. Very much a play on the Bond legend, with a nice climax in the Bond tradition. Read full review

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - PaulBaldowski - LibraryThing

While entirely readable and including some interesting characters, it's not a shadow of the first book. Easily devoured in short order, I'm not deterred from moving on to the next book... but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to someone who wasn't already engaged with the Laundry series.
