    Part of the journey

    This is the turning point for John Taylor. If you read the series, you meet his future enemies. He ends up helping the very people who want to kill him.

    Traditional Nightside

    I love this series and this installment didn't let me down. I think John Taylor is one the best characters in this genre. In this book he struggles with trying to get the Walking Man to agree to disagree. The Walking Man comes to the Nightside ready to destroy everything in his path and John has to find away to stop him. Which is nothing new for John since that's pretty much the basis for all these books. However, in this book there are some new delevopments concerning the relationships John has with Susie Shooter and Walker. The books are too short to say more without spoiling it. What I will say is I can't wait for the next one.

    Classic Nightside Addittion

    With a lighthearted sardonic (sometimes ironic) wit, John confronts the unstoppable 'Walking Man" as he rages through the Nightside in search of the 'guilty'. The problem is that most of the nightside, including all the major/minor powers/players, are 'guilty' of something. This is a fast paced, entertaining, action-packed read which employs a clever solution not dependent on John's supernatural third eye. Further, John's personal relationships with Suzy and Walker show interesting progression. I recommend this book to any Nightside fan and recommend the entire series to anyone who enjoys a dark, fantastic urban reality featuring an off-beat, sardonic, likable detective/fix-it man.

    Simon Green is true to form

    While those expecting a departure from his usual formulaic writing will no doubt be disappointed, Green's exceptional use of language will provide even jaded readers with a good yarn. A standard plot formula -- John Taylor, PI in the mythical and quasi-magical Nightside, is forced to confront a new and more dangerous memesis "The Walking Man". Only through the exercise of guts, hunches, and his own innate transcendental gifts is the bad guy vanquished and all made right in the closing pages.

    So much for the usual recipe. What distinguishes this book is the progression of character fixtures (Walker, John Taylor's sometimes mock parental figure and antagonist), Suzy Shooter (the love interest) and even the Authorities into new relationships and alliances. While this adds some novelty to the work, only a comparatively small portion of the overall plot structure hinges on these evolutionary changes -- they were clearly added as an afterthought, and not as primary development.

    Shakespeare it is not, but then few read Simon Green for superlative plot and character structure. As escapism it does just fine, thank you very much and the colorful language proves a welcome garnish to the insanity of this dark urban fantasy. It may be cartoonish, but the transition of other cartoon fare to the big screen in recent years clearly demonstrates the public's continuing fascination with this fusion genre.

    If you haven't read Simon Green since his earlier series (Deathstalker, and Hawk-and-Fisher, to name only a few), I can heartily recommend sampling this British author's more recent works - "Just Another Judgement Day" being an exemplar of them.

    Like an after-dinner mint it won't change your life; but you'll enjoy it while it lasts.
