Kraken by China Mieville

Reviewed by: 
How does a 16 ton giant squid vanish from a carefully guarded museum in the center of London and why does this presage the end of the world? Only China Mieville would even think of such a premise and in Kraken the fun is in how masterfully he takes you through the underground world of weird cults, urban magic and lost history to answer those questions.  You'll think twice before ordering calimari in future!
