Publisher's Summary

"The name's John Taylor. I'm a PI for hire in the Nightside, the dark and corrupt city within the city of London. Where the sun never shines and where pleasure and horror are always on sale - for the right price. Not a nice place to visit or a nice place to live. So you wouldn't think I would care that it was about to be destroyed, but none other than my very own long-missing, not-quite-human mind."But I do. I was born here, I live here, and I got friends here. They might not be acceptable in polite company, but they're my friends nonetheless. I know that I'm the only one who can stop her. The trick is, how to do it without fulfilling this prophecy that says whatever action I take, not only is the Nightside doomed, but the rest of the world will soon follow...."


What the Critics Say

"This is Green's tour-de-force culmination of the Nightside books. Anyone who's enjoyed the series to date absolutely must read this installment." (Romantic Times)

A thrill ride

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would but I would say since its part of the series they need to start with book one. Without the previous five it wouldn't make a lot of sense.

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

The world he creates is as vivid, deep and alive as always. This book though I feel relies too much on unexpected twists and convienent turns of luck.

What does Marc Vietor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accents of the characters I think. That's something I seldom hear when I read or if I do the ones I cook up are over the top.

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

Probably who John meets in the ruins of the library. Spoilers :p
