Not quite as good as 'Equoid' which (to my mind at least) is the best of the three Laundry short stories on my Kindle but good nonetheless. With any short story there is only so many pages to tell the tale so they don't have the space to expand the plot / end somewhat "quickly" which is obviously less satisfying than the longer stories where there is more 'time' to tell the tale. But this is really quibbling - it's a good story. If you like the other Laundry files and haven't read this one; do so! But if you haven't read any Charles Stross and wanted a 'sample' to try it out, I'd go with Equoid instead :-) Really looking forward to the next 'installment' of the Laundry files later this year!
