The Atrocity Archives: Book 1 in The Laundry Files
When occult powers threaten the realm, they'll be there to clean up the mess and deal with the witnesses. But the Laundry is recovering from a devastating attack, and when average citizens all over the country start to develop supernatural powers, the police are called in to help.
The Atrocity Archives (a Laundry Files novel) by Charles Stross
Alex Schwartz had a great job and a promising future - until he caught an unfortunate bout of vampirism and agreed on pain of death to join the Laundry, Britain's only counter-occult secret intelligence agency. His first assignment is in Leeds - his old hometown.
But the thought of telling his parents he's lost his job, let alone their discovering his 'condition', is causing Alex almost as much anxiety as his new lifestyle of supernatural espionage. His only saving grace is Cassie Brewer, a student from the local Goth Festival. Bob Howard's career in the Laundry, the secret British government agency dedicated to protecting the world from the supernatural, has involved brilliant hacking, ancient magic and combat with creatures of pure evil.
Now the Laundry's existence has become public, and Bob is being trotted out on TV to answer pointed questions about elven asylum seekers. Britain is under New Management.
The disbanding of the Laundry - the British espionage agency that deals with supernatural threats - has culminated in the unthinkable: an elder god in residence in 10 Downing Street. But in true 'the enemy of my enemy' fashion, Mhairi Murphy finds herself working with His Excellency Nylarlathotep on foreign policy - there are worse things, it seems, than an elder god in power, and they lie in deepest, darkest America.
