Bob Howard—a T-shirt–wearing computer geek and field agent for the super-secret British government agency the Laundry—must save the world from eldritch horrors, codenamed Jennifer Morgue, in this fast-paced spy thriller.

Bob’s current mission is to stop the evil Ellis Billington from achieving world domination, but he must overcome obstacles including the Gravedust device, which permits communication with the dead; destiny-entanglement protocol; banishment weapons; and Ramona Random, a lethal but beautiful agent for the US counterpart to the Laundry. Billington plans to raise the eldritch horror Jennifer Morgue from the vasty deeps, and communicate with a dead warrior for the purpose of ruling the world.

Blending physics and applied mathematics with the practice of summoning and demonology, this spy-meets-horror novel will keep sci-fi fans on the edge of their seats. This volume also includes a bonus story, “Pimpf,” featuring agent Bob Howard in the world of virtual gaming, as well as an afterword entitled “The Golden Age of Spying.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Emily | 2/10/2014

    " This was fun, although I realized too late that I should have read The Atrocity Archives first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andy Micone | 2/7/2014

    " Appeals to the HP Lovecraft and Linux geek crowd, a very small demographic, which I think might consist of only me and the author. This is an alternative reality, horror punk meets cyberpunk style novel. It's a good, fun breezy read. Though it's part of a trilogy, it can be read independently without losing too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Deborah Ross | 2/4/2014

    " In our house, all you have to say is, "I'm reading a Charlie Stross," as shorthand for "a wildly inventive, absorbing, thoughtful read." This follows THE ATROCITY ARCHIVES aka Cold War spy agencies with delusions of bureaucratic paperwork in Cthulu-Land. Now our computer-geek hero (and his violin-waving philosopher lady) are trapped in an unfolding James Bond scenario. "

    " I enjoyed reading Jennifer Morgue. It dates itself badly, with all the references to 2005-era tech: Treos and Palm Pilots and Neverwinter Nights, but should be familiar to anyone who's experienced the past decade. Having read his more recent stuff (Glasshouse, Accelerando), I'm struck by the contrast in style between his Singularity-punk and Laundry series. "
