So this was the last novel I read last year and I finally had the brain space to sit down and write-up my thoughts on it.
I have a thing for spy novels, I used to read a lot of spy thrillers. One of my favourite non f&sf series is the Hamilton series by Jan Guillou about a Swedish spy (don’t judge a book by its movie) and one of my favourite tv-series is Spooks. I also really like stories about agencies dealing with the supernatural – I probably just watch too much X-files, but it is a setup that fascinates me. So the Laundry Files has it going for it from the get go.
