Publisher Description

When magic and superpowers emerge in the masses, Wendy Deere is contracted by the government to bag and snag supervillains in Hugo Award-winning author Charles Stross' Dead Lies Dreaming: A Laundry Files Novel.

As Wendy hunts down Imp—the cyberpunk head of a band calling themselves “The Lost Boys”— she is dragged into the schemes of louche billionaire Rupert de Montfort Bigge. Rupert has discovered that the sole surviving copy of the long-lost concordance to the one true Necronomicon is up for underground auction in London. He hires Imp’s sister, Eve, to procure it by any means necessary, and in the process, he encounters Wendy Deere.

In a tale of corruption, assassination, thievery, and magic, Wendy Deere must navigate rotting mansions that lead to distant pasts, evil tycoons, corrupt government officials, lethal curses, and her own moral qualms in order to make it out of this chase alive.

Better than the opening scene suggests

Perhaps because I spent the weekend before this came bing watching The Boys, I came close to bouncing off this book. Imp & Co were clearly coded as people I should be rooting for, but they came off as D-list supes up to no good and my sympathies were completely with the normies they were robbing. Fortunately, Stross pivoted to a much more evil, and more interesting, character for the next scene.

This is being pitched as a new entry point for the series. I’m not sure it will work as that. There’s a lot that I doubt will make any sense to someone who hasn’t read any of the previous Laundry books.

Dead Lies Dreaming

Good ending but not as much fun as earlier books in the series.
