The Labyrinth Index
- Laundry Files, Book 9
- By: Charles Stross
- Narrated by: Laurence Bouvard
- Length: 14 hrs and 17 mins
Britain is under New Management. The disbanding of the Laundry - the British espionage agency that deals with supernatural threats - has culminated in the unthinkable: an elder god in residence in 10 Downing Street. But in true 'the enemy of my enemy' fashion, Mhairi Murphy finds herself working with His Excellency Nylarlathotep on foreign policy - there are worse things, it seems, than an elder god in power, and they lie in deepest, darkest America.

Story great, not keen on narrator
The story is just what I’d expect of a Laundry Files novel: fast paced, geeky creepy and a lot of fun. I just wish that for a story whose main characters are British, they could have got a narrator whose attempts at British accents were less cringeworthy. I still enjoyed listening to this book, but the awful "British" accents (that would likely only sound good to an American) were honestly a bit of a slog to my ears.
