JUST ANOTHER JUDGEMENT DAY
In this ninth Nightside novel, Green takes readers into the very seediest, most disturbing parts of John Taylor's world and casts a harsh light on human depravity. Although scenes containing graphic depictions of child abuse may put some readers off, Taylor is an amiable protagonist who is, increasingly, the moral center of the Nightside, and his slowly growing relationship with the damaged Suzie Shooter is one of this book's highlights.
The Nightside is just starting
to get back to what passes for normal when the new authorities encounter a problem: The Walking Man, God's enforcer who walks upon the Earth as judge, jury and executioner, has come to town. The authorities ask John Taylor, resident P.I. and troublemaker, to lend a hand. Accompanied by Chandra Singh, a holy warrior, John realizes very quickly that he's going to have to pull out all the stops to kill a being that legend claims is unkillable.
