This review is from: The Fuller Memorandum: Number 3 in The Laundry Files (Kindle Edition)
As a fan of the first two Laundry books, I was surprised to see the tone get darker as soon as the Fuller Memo started. A sense of foreboding quickly sets in, replacing the sex magic & Bond references of the previous tone.
This really suits the series, as our heroes take steps towards the future they're preparing for... sure, there's violence and horror, but it's scary because it is rooted in everyday news. The darkness is just plausible enough to make you think twice when you see certain headlines in the news, afterwards.
Stross' talent continues to sparkle, giving extra depth to the characters as they gain experience. A great page turner and a definite recommendation.
And for once, the decent Kindle price made this an easy one-lick buy - compare with paperback or even US kindle edition.
