Unlike the 10th installment of the Laundry Files, it only took me a couple of weeks to finish this one.  While it used much of the same cast as its Peter Pan–inspired predecessor, and added a Mary Poppins-inspired character, the plot and the characters made more sense this time around.  And the macabre touches made it fit a little better into the Lovecraftian universe that this series originally inhabited a little more consistently.

Still looking forward to seeing Bob Howard come back, which we are apparently promised in the next book, which is a prequel “novella.”
