I was my dad's vinyl-wallah: I changed his records while he lounged around, and that's how I know my Argo from my Tempo. And it's why, when Dr Walid called me to the morgue to listen to a corpse, I recognised the tune it was playing. Something violently supernatural had happened to the victim, strong enough to leave its imprint like a wax cylinder recording.

Ben Aaronovitch's writing and Kolbna Holbrook Smith's voice acting are both excellent giving a delightful second installment in the saga of Police Constable Peter Grant.

After stumbling upon the algorithm that turned him and his fellow merchant bankers into vampires, Alex Schwartz was drafted by The Laundry, Britain's secret counter-occult agency that's humanity's first line of defense against the forces of darkness. Dependent on his new employers for his continued existence - as Alex has no stomach for predatory bloodsucking - he has little choice but to accept his new role as an operative in training.

After the last two lackluster Rhesus Chart and Annhilation Score, Stross regains the depth and fun of the first four Laundry novels. Gideon Emery's narration makes listening a pleasure.
