Image of The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny (Nightside)

In the 10th novel in Green's Nightside series, John Taylor is on the receiving end of a trifecta of tasks that will push him to his limits and force him to decide what kind of man he is. John's
a sympathetic protagonist, and Green has written a well-paced and quick read that fans of the series will enjoy.

John is a P.I. with a knack for finding things in the Nightside, a hidden area in the middle of London where the sun never shines, nightmares walk the streets and any sin can be bought so long as you can afford the cost. Despite this, John's life is looking pretty good -- he's wealthy enough to take only the cases he wants, and his relationship with Suzie Shooter has never been better.

And then, while on a sequence of jobs that seem to have very little bearing on each other, the strangest thing of all happens: Walker, the man who runs the Nightside on behalf of the authorities, offers John his job. (ACE, Jan., 288 pp., $24.95)
