The Barnes & Noble Review
In Hex and the City, the fourth installment in Simon R. Green's Nightside saga (Something from the Nightside, Agents of Light and Darkness, and Nightingale's Lament), private investigator John Taylor uncovers the dark origins of the Nightside -- and gets in touch with his supernatural side.

The Nightside -- the subterranean realm underneath London "where gods and monsters walk side by side" and where it's always three o'clock in the morning -- is the perfect place for Taylor, a private eye with the preternatural ability to track down anyone and anything. After a wealthy client hires him to uncover how and why the Nightside was created, Taylor begins a perilous quest that not only almost gets him killed several times over but also leads him to some jaw-dropping revelations about his own mysterious origins.

Accompanied by a madman, a soulless sinner, and a demon, Taylor looks for answers in the darkest corners of the Nightside. After talking with some of the weirdest and most dangerous characters that the realm has to offer -- Herne the Hunter, the antlered god of the forests; the Lamentation, also known as the Saint of Suffering; and the Lord of Thorns, the mythical overseer of the Nightside -- Taylor finally unlocks the mysteries of the Nightside when he meets his long-absent mother!

Like H. R. Giger meets Monty Python's Flying Circus, Green's Nightside saga is as ghastly as it is outrageous. An audacious amalgam of mystery, fantasy, and horror, John Taylor's adventures in the Nightside are action-packed, breakneck paced -- and thoroughly entertaining. Paul Goat Allen
