Publisher's Summary

There's a new sheriff in town, and he's got the Nightside's rich and powerful quaking in their boots. He's The Walking Man, and it's his mission to exorcise sinners - with extreme prejudice.Problem is, the Nightside was built on sin and corruption, and The Walking Man makes no distinction between evildoers and those simply indulging themselves. He'll leave the place a wasteland unless someone stops him, and P.I. John Taylor has been handed the job. No known magic or science can affect The Walking Man, and if John can't discover his weakness, he'll be facing the very Wrath of God.

It's alright.

If you are reading this review, you likely already know if you are getting this or not. You are either totally plugged into the Nightside or you burned out a while back.

So, for those of you who will be continuing on, let me tell you. . .it's not as good as some, not as bad as others. Green has improved as a writer since we started our journey, but he still lacks as a storyteller sometimes.

There isn't really a villain in this book. Ok, our heroes aren't all that nice *in the Nightside*, but there are those people who take evil to that next level *in the Nightside*. (Sorry, I wanted to know what that felt like, *in the Nightside*.)

Anyway, John goes after what is really a force of nature style antagonist. John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. Then, John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. Then, John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. . .

. . . and then a solution happened that caused my suspension of disbelieve to totally fall apart and I began to ask if Green was aware of what his main character gets up to in the books.

That's the story. It's worth a listen if you're still into touring the Nightside. Green makes the setting just as wonderful as ever, but he has found a new form of repetition that his editor needs to beat out of him.

As for the Narration, Vietor is always amazing.

Formulaic Plot, Amazing World and Characters

What made the experience of listening to Just Another Judgement Day the most enjoyable?

Marc Vietor is a great narrator. He really knows how to capture and convey a scene to the listern.


If you’ve listened to books by Simon R. Green before, how does this one compare?

This one is middle of the road in terms of the Nightside series. After a while you can spot the where the plot is going by and large but the world and characters are so captivating, you can't help but love it.


Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?

John Taylor


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When made their way through Precious Memories. I'd go into more detail but..spoilers.


Any additional comments?

The series is rather formulaic but the world is so alive that each time you start a new book you're hoping that old characters will pop in for a scene or two.
