Welcome to the Nightside, the dark seeded underbelly of London. Where sin is sold on every corner and nightmares and fantasies have a way of coming true. Once you stop by you may never want to leave, if you still have the choice. This is the world that Private Investigator John Taylor calls home. John Taylor is a man known for finding things, and this time Nightside's own gossip magazine "The Unnatural Inquirer" wants John to find an unverified recording of the afterlife, as always John Taylor is thrust into the middle of a power struggle going on between the major players of the Nightside. This is the 8th book in the Nightside series by Simon R. Green most noticeably known for his Deathstalker novels. Surprisingly Simon R. Green resolved the major story arc he injected into his Nightside series in book 6, leading readers to wonder if he was finished or if subsequent books would be worth reading. However I continue to be pleasantly surprised with these novels and how he continues the story of John Taylor. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of each novel is the mini story arcs contained in each book. These short quickly resolved mini quests reveal more depth and detail to the Nightside. Although you will find the characters have little depth regardless of the back history attached to them, I highly recommend this book to readers that enjoy a little mischief and have a wry sense of humor. This book and others in the series are most enjoyable at those strange hours of the night when sleep is hard to come by as they are short quick reads that are immensely enjoyable. ~ Matthew @ novelmusings.com

This series is always good. The books have a lot of surprises and witty humor. This book in particular added more depth to John Taylor. He has his new relationship with Suzie Shooter, but another woman comes into the scene...a woman who can touch him without issues. John seems to make a choice and does think about another relationship, something more normal. I think it's good for his character to still learn more things about himself.

This book follows the familiar formula as the preceding books in the series - although there is not the same amount of detective work and related action throughout the novel - especially near the end when the 'mystery' is solved. The secondary plot attempting to spin a romantic angle with the reporter is insuffiently developed (Susie may have had more to say about this - or surely done more!). The ending was rather disappointing as well. A more exciting conclusion may have been John attempting to collect his fee from the Unnatural Enquirer now that his client is deceased, considering the offices are not in the Nightside itself. Overall, the author's reliance on John's reputation to get him out of tight situations rather than coming up with new solutions is becoming a tiresome and overused cliche'.

I have yet to be let down with one of these books. The subjects and characters continue to keep my interest. Some books don't have the constant action,but that is a nice change of pace for me.
