Publisher's Summary

Things were going so well for P.I. John Taylor, that it was only a matter of time before everything hit the fan. Walker, the powerful, ever-present, never to-be-trusted agent who runs the Nightside on behalf of The Authorities, is dying. And he wants John to be his successor-a job that comes with more baggage, and more enemies, than anyone can possibly imagine.

Critic Reviews

The gripping, suspenseful, and wry 10th tale in the Nightside supernatural detective series proves every but the equal of Jim Butcher's better-known Harry Dresden books. Longtime fans and first timers alike will applaud Green's blend of fantasy, mystery, and humor. (Publishers Weekly)

Please Sir....

May I have some more? Marc Vietor Rocks this series!
This is not the book to start with, though each in the series can stand alone, they really are better read in order... Dark, funny, excellent world building!
Can't wait to see what's in store for John Taylor now that "Walker" is gone... or is he?

Story begins to tie up story arc loose ends.

Feels like a novel and then a short story. Really confusing when listening. One story concludes then something else starts. Shoot the editor.

Uncanny, all good, nothing bad

Really enjoyed this one as I did the other novels. Just what you expect from the author providing an imaginative and funny take on this unusual private eye.
Particularly liked the ending.
