9780441019779: The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny (A Nightside Book)

In the Nightside—that hidden area in the middle of London where time stands still at three A.M. and the sun won’t rise to refute it—nightmares go walking in borrowed flesh, and not everything that looks back at you with human eyes is really human.
           
I’m John Taylor, a PI with a knack for finding things, helping those the Nightside has chewed up and is about to spit out. All things considered, my life lately had been bright, even in this shadowy place.
           
So it was only a matter of time before everything hit the fan. Walker—the powerful, ever-present, never-to-be-trusted agent who runs the Nightside on behalf of the Authorities—paid me a visit. He told me he is dying and that he, too, has a job for me. An important job.

His.

Review:

Praise for Simon R. Green’s Novels of the Nightside:
 
“A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world.” – Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files
 
“Fast paced and amusing, as well as packed with inventive details.”—The Denver Post
 
“Fast, fun, adventurous detection in a setting in which nearly anything’s possible.” – Booklist
 
“Sam Spade meets Sirius Black...inventively gruesome.” – Entertainment Weekly
 
“Superlative...An intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the supernatural.” – Publishers Weekly
 
“Readers who prefer their gore with huge melodramatic flourishes and a side of slyly amusing repartee will find Joh Taylor at least the equal of Jim Butcher’s Chicago wizard PI Harry Dresden.” – Kirkus Reviews
 
“Cross The X-Files with The Twilight Zone, add a pinch of The Outer Limits and a dash of Eerie, Indiana, and one might have a glimmer of an idea what the Nightside is like.” – BookBrowser
 
Totally enjoyable...take a vacation into the Nightside...just try not to get lost in it.” – Crimespree
 
“A captivating tale starring a heroic and endearing character whose thoughts when he is in danger are hilarious.” – Midwest Book Review
 
 “Taylor is the Sam Spade for the twenty-first century, willing to stare down an angel, a demon, or a god. [The] Nightside has the meanest of the mean streets, and John Taylor is right at home there.” – Fantasy Literature
