The Labyrinth Index

The Labyrinth Index Review

The arrival of vast, alien, inhuman intelligences reshaped the landscape for human affairs across the world, and the United Kingdom is no exception. Things have changed in Britain since the dread elder god Nyarlathotep ascended to the rank of Prime Minister. Mhari Murphy, recently elevated to the House of Lords and head of the Lords Select Committee on Sanguinary Affairs (think vampires), finds herself in direct consultation with the creeping chaos, who directs her to lead a team of disgraced Laundry personnel into the dark heart of America. It seems the Creeping Chaos is concerned about foreign relations.

A thousand-mile-wild storm system has blanketed the midwest, and the President is nowhere to be found. In fact, for reasons unknown the people of America are forgetting that the executive branch ever existed. The government has been infiltrated by the shadowy Black Chamber, and the Pentagon and NASA have been refocused on the problem of summoning Cthulhu.

Somewhere, the Secret Service battle to stay awake, to remind the President who he is, and to stay one step ahead of the vampiric dragnet that’s searching for him.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

    Apocalypses are easier slept through than experienced. I finished this on Halloween. As expected/hoped, it was a wild ride with the author pulling out all the stops (that were never there). The reaso...

    The Labyrinth Index has rekindled my interest in the Laundry Files. I was getting a bit bored with the series since it seemed to be repeating the same formula over and over again. In fact, I don't eve...

    Thanks to Netgalley for providing a copy of this book for review.It's weird to think of a book describing the Lovecraftian singularity as comfort reading, yet it is for me. At least, I reach for the L...

    THE LABYRINTH INDEX is probably the book which is the most like a James Bond pastiche after a long period of the series poo-pooing on the very concept. It stars an arrogant sexist protagonist who figh...

    Okay, the President has not technically been kidnapped. Rather, the Operational Phenomenology Agency, aka the Black Chamber, aka the Nazgul, has worked a geas across the entire United States to make t...

    **The Labyrinth Index**, the latest entry in *Charlie Stross*' Laundry Files series … escalates. When the last volume of the Laundry Files ended fairly apocalyptic, I was under the impression that C...

    After a slow start, and almost-fatal damage to my WSOD —N’yar Lat-Hotep (aka the Black Pharaoh) as PM !— Stross almost pulls this one off with a rousing finish. I never really believed the Conco...

    Stross has recently been describing the Laundry Files as taking place in an even darker timeline than our own, which puzzles me. I mean, yes, there's an elder god in Downing Street, but at least he's ...
