'Brilliantly disturbing and funny at the same time' -Ben Aaronovitch (author of RIVERS OF LONDON) The fifth Laundry Files novel by Charles Stross, but also a jumping-on point for readers new to the series, The Rhesus Chart sees hacker and supernatural spy Bob Howard take on the (literal) bloodsuckers running London's financial district. LONDON CAN DRAIN THE LIFE OUT OF YOU ...Bob Howard is an intelligence agent working his way through the ranks of 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. There's one kind of threat that the Laundry has never come across in its many decades, and that's vampires. Mention them to a seasoned agent and you'll be laughed out of the room. But when a small team of investment bankers at one of Canary Wharf's most distinguished financial institutions discovers an arcane algorithm that leaves them fearing daylight and craving O positive, someone doesn't want the Laundry to know. And Bob gets caught right in the middle.

Review quote

Brilliantly disturbing and funny at the same time -- Ben Aaronovitch (author of RIVERS OF LONDON) Stross has pulled off yet another fast-paced blend of espionage thrills, office comedy and Lovecraftian horror ... ferociously enjoyable -- Saxon Bullock SFX Stross at the top of his game-which is to say, few do it better.
