Publisher's Summary

Some agents have all the fun. Others save the world.

Bob Howard is an IT expert and occasional field agent for The Laundry, the branch of Her Majesty's Secret Service that deals with occult threats.

Dressed (grudgingly) in a tux and sent to the Caribbean, he must infiltrate a millionaire's yacht in order to prevent him violating a treaty that will start a war with an ancient underwater race. Partnered with a gorgeous American agent who's actually a soul-sucking succubus from another dimension, Bob's mission is to stop the bad guys, avoid getting the girl, and survive - shaken, perhaps, but not stirred.

This audiobook includes the short story Pimpf, and an afterword read by the author.

    Story
    "oh can we please have some more !"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this series to friends - they are in I.T. and I'm sure they wish they could raise demons in MS windows


    What other book might you compare The Jennifer Morgue to, and why?

    its a bit Mike Carey , a bit James Bond (well ok a lot James Bond but thats to be expected given the poor lead is forced to act like the eponymous JB by computer driven magic)


    What about Jack Hawkins’s performance did you like?

    he brings the ordinary man in the street who happens to have a job working for a supernatural government agency to life - with humour and whit and his characterisation doesn't falter


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Charles Stross puts the fun in fundamental physics and maths, and dont you wish you could do magic with a AAA battery, some wire and a calculator


    Any additional comments?

    i hope to see many more of Charles Stross novels on audible

    Story
    "Quite superb"

    This series is quite the most bizarre collection of ideas ever put together on paper, shear genius.
    If you enjoy Douglas Adams you should enjoy these.
    Apocalyptic demons, a reluctant hero who's an I.T expert, health and safety, spies, arse kicking femme fatales, lots of computer stuff, more demons, the Gestapo ( yes you read that right ), modern day office politics, a mix of James Bond but on a budget,with expense forms filled in in triplicate of course, mega villans, the end of the world, great gadgets and all with a great sense of humour.
