The Voice of the Nightside is dying, but he won't let a small thing like death stop him from making private eye John Taylor's life difficult . . .
For once, Taylor has been hired for a simple task - all he has to do is to escort an elf across the Nightside. Well, it would be simple, if Walker, the powerful, never-to-be-trusted Voice of the Authorities, wasn't determined to interfere.
It soon becomes clear that surviving the journey is going to be the least of John Taylor's worries: Walker is dying and he wants Taylor to be his successor. He's the obvious choice, the one man all the inhabitants of the Nightside know - and fear. The problem is, Taylor doesn't want the job. It comes with more trouble and enemies than he's willing to deal with. But Walker is set on his choice, and he'll go to great lengths to get his way . . .
The Good, the Bad and the Uncanny is the tenth title in the New York Times bestselling Nightside series by Simon R. Green.
The gripping, suspenseful, and wry 10th tale in the Nightside supernatural detective series proves every bit the equal of Jim Butcher's better-known Harry Dresden books. The action picks up not long after 2009's Just Another Judgement Day as Lord Screech, an elf claiming to be a peace emissary who has just negotiated a treaty between powerful elvish rivals, enlists PI John Taylor's help in getting safe passage to a portal to another realm. Despite his misgivings about Screech's honesty, Taylor and Ms. Fate, a transvestite crime fighter who "might have heard of taste, but only as something other people had," battle werewolves and Neanderthals to deliver Screech to his destination and tackle several other challenges. Longtime fans and first timers alike will applaud Green's blend of fantasy, mystery, and humor.
