Dan Abnett does whatever he wants with 40k lore, makes it more entertaining.

Eisenhorn is a young, fiery, puritan Inquisitor. A series of event slowly radicalise him, to the point where he is binding powerful daemons into the corpses of his most trusted friends. Hilarity ensues.

There are 3 books, followed by another series called Ravenor, about one of his interrogators (and is the better series imo). There is also the first book of a third series out, called Pariah, which follows another one of his old minions.

All are definitely worth reading, and are some of my favourite 40k books.

Darkchild

EDIT: There's a character in one of the Ravenor novels called Toros Revoke, and he's a fucking operator. Best bad guy in a 40k novel I've ever seen.

I finally finished reading The Box. It is worth reading if you want an interesting framing of how global distribution and shipping drastically changed in the 20th century, in part due to a boring-looking metal container.

Reading "Burglar's Guide to the City" by Geoff Manaugh (the Building Blog guy)

Kinda continues my theme of "crime" + "architecture shit". Also kinda depressing read, because it basically explains how burglars view a structure, and how they completely subvert how a building is used, and how security is basically a fucking myth when someone can just smash a hole through your wall/ceiling/floor. The opening chapter is magnificent.
