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.


What the Critics Say

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?

I just don't even want to spend the effort to write a real review of this book. The NIGHTSIDE series, which started out so well, has become a joke. With each recent installment, Green repeats the same formula used before. Even the same words! For details, please see my reviews of the previous two novels, The Unnatural Inquirer and Just Another Judgement Day. Honestly, I wouldn't have even picked up The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny if I hadn't already purchased it (and the rest of the novels) when it was on sale at Audible. That'll teach me. The audio production and narration by Marc Vietor is excellent, though.
