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 really simple task - 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.
