Oooo yes!

About a third of the way into "The Rhesus Chart" and Stross still has the magic. And gotta love a Laundry tale that starts with an incident that makes Angleton break into a sweat (for the uninitiated: if Angleton and Cthulhu were to so much as make eye contact, Cthulhu would be the one crying for its mommy and having to sleep with the lights on for the rest of its existence) and then keeps escalating from there. If only my job didn't require a functioning intelligence (plus, this week, the ability to cram five days work into three days with a side order of figuring out how we can best livemove data into a client's database without screwing anything up) which needs to be fueled by sleep, I'd stay up 'til the small hours to finish the book; instead I'm gonna have to do my impersonation of responsible and pry it out of my own hands for the night (well, maybe ONE more chapter ...)
