Stross, Charles: The Fuller Memorandum

Another adventure for Bob Howard and his wife Mo with her participation limited but vital. The continuing story of the secret branch of the British Secret Service that deals with the supernatural. Every bit as involving and well-crafted as the earlier books though the finale did seem a little over the top. The idea of a Lovecraftian world seen only by a gifted few is made a
perfectly reasonable construct and there is a definite consistency in its application. I have read and reviewed the two books which precede this. 'The Atrocity Archives' and 'The Jennifer Morgue', and this book maintains the high standards of those two
with a definite development of the characters.
