This eighth book in Green's Nightside series is a slight volume. John Taylor is up to his usual tricks and on the trail of missing goods, but this time it feels like it was written by rote. The clever quips and turns of phrase don't ring true. The secondary plot about John's romantic life is much more interesting than the main plot.

P.I. John is commissioned by the Nightside's tabloid, The Unnatural
Inquirer, to find a person and a DVD that have gone missing. It's a
run-of-the-mill request on the surface, until John learns that the DVD
contains a recording of the afterlife by one Pen Donovan, who has
conveniently gone missing.

John's not sure if the DVD is on the up and up, but for a million pounds,
he's not going to argue too much about that little fact. Of course, he's
not the only one on the trail of the DVD, so it becomes a race to the
finish, one that has an ending John may not much care for. (Ace, Jan., 256
