The Annihilation Score Summary

The Annihilation Score: A Laundry Files novel by Charles Stross

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER ...Dr Mo O'Brien is an intelligence agent at the top-secret government agency known as 'the Laundry'. When occult powers threaten the realm, they'll be there to clean up the mess and deal with the witnesses. But the Laundry is recovering from a devastating attack and when average citizens all over the country start to develop supernatural powers, the police are called in to help. Mo is appointed as official police liaison, but in between dealing with police bureaucracy, superpowered members of the public and disgruntled politicians, Mo discovers to her horror that she can no longer rely on her marriage, nor on the weapon that has been at her side for eight years of undercover work, the possessed violin known as 'Lecter'. If this wasn't bad enough, a mysterious figure known as Dr Freudstein is committing heists and sending increasingly threatening messages to the police. Who is Freudstein and what is he planning?

The Annihilation Score Reviews

Brilliantly disturbing and funny at the same time

Stross has pulled off yet another fast-paced blend of espionage thrills, office comedy and Lovecraftian horror . . . ferociously enjoyable

Stross at the top of his game - which is to say, few do it better

Alternately chilling and hilarious
