The Hidden Family - Charles Stross

This is the sequel to The Family Trade, and I won't give away any of its plot here, as that would ruin the previous book. Suffice to say that while it doesn't stand as a book on its own, stuff happens in this one. Plots are twisted, stakes are raised, and it generally makes you feel that it was worth reading, even if it still feels like the middle chunk of a long book.
