The Apocalypse Codex (2012) is the fourth novel by Charles Stross in his "Laundry" series of Lovecraftian spy thrillers. The previous novels in the series were The Atrocity Archives (2004), The Jennifer Morgue (2006), and The Fuller Memorandum (2010). The novels follow the protagonist Bob Howard, an agent for the intelligence agency known as the Laundry. According to Stross, while the first three books in the series were written in the style of Len Deighton, Ian Fleming and Anthony Price, respectively, the fourth installment is written in the style of a Peter O'Donnell (Modesty Blaise) novel. For future installments, Stross feels that, "the series has acquired an identity and feel of its own," and does not intend to continue the pastiche motif.
