Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Brace yourself, there's a new sheriff in town and he shows no mercy. The Walking Man is the Nightside's worst nightmare: a judge, jury, and executor who refuses to acknowledge degrees of sin and self-indulgence. If allowed to continue his deadly business, the whole Nightside will become a wasteland. It falls into the hands of private investigator John Taylor to neutralize this new extreme threat to the underworld. Continuing an inventive tradition of fantasy noir.

    If you like Dresden Files and Harry Potter, you'll like The Nightside

    I found this series when I was out of Dresden File books to read and wasn't sure I would like it. Well, I did. John Taylor isn't a wizard, we aren't really sure what he is, but he has the power to find anything so he is a detective in The Nightside a hidden part of London where everything that bumps in the night lives. His partner is Shotgun Suzy who can't stand to be touched, they're working on that. He is called upon to save the Nightside, once again this time from a power sent from God, maybe. John is one of the few people in the Nightside who tends to fight for good although his means are not always the cleanest. He has some very existential challenges and some very human responses. Another great addition to a really good series. To know more, read the books.

    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.

    Nightside Rocks!

    Just what is expected from Simon Green. Funny, fast-paced, a few surprises, a little Sam Spade, and all the off-beat and entertaining critters & personalities he has created over the years thrown in for good luck. A fun read, as always.

    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.

    Good read but not great for thinking

    If you are looking for a book to make you think a lot this is not for you. If you are looking for a fun distraction this is the book you are looking for. Off beat characters abound.

    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.

    I love John and Suzie!

    Simon Green has quite an imagination. I love his Darkside stories. The characters are beyond imagination but lovable. I like the idea of the Darkside existing out there somewhere just in case.

    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.

    terrific urban noir fantasy

    Since time began, there has always been The Walking Man; an entity who travel¿s God¿s path by killing sinners regardless of their crimes against the Lord although he focuses mostly on those beyond redemption. He has become invulnerable with incredible strength and speed. He has no compassion, no empathy, no pity; he cares naught about their souls or their surviving loved ones. Heavenly justice is all that matters to this judge, jury and executioner.<BR/><BR/>Now he is coming to clean up Nightside, a city invisible within London; a place where sin thrives and where every perversion known to humanity flourishes in the open. The Walking Man demands the end of transgressions or else; he includes sinners and hedonistic self indulgers. Nightside will die once he purges the community. Private investigator John Taylor intends to stop the invincible Walking Man; he understands what he is going up against as all who ever opposed this legend died. However, he also comprehends passivity denotes death anyway. At the Adventurer¿s Club House, John takes a last stand with many locals at his side; but in the end it will be him and The Walking Man with only one walking away.<BR/><BR/>As is the case in the previous saga, Nightside is a place where anything happens as John Taylor is well aware of from the numerous cases he has worked. This place is in his blood and in a sense his heritage. The irony of this deep two person character study is that John also dispenses justice on evil doers in his Marlowe tough guy manner. The difference resides on interpretation as John discreetly ignores self inflicted depravities that harm no one not involved in the dissoluteness; while The Walking Man does not discriminate as he goes after anyone who in his mind has violated God¿s rules; hence the title. Simon R. Green has refreshed his terrific urban noir fantasy with a paranormal gunfight at the OK Corral showdown.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
