In the secret heart of London, under the cover of endless darkness, is the Nightside. But enter at your own risk. The party animals who live here may be as inhuman as their appetites...
My name is John Taylor. The Nightside is my home, and I’ve got a brand new full-time job there (in addition to my private eye work) as Walker—the Voice of the Authorities. I’m also marrying the love of my life, Suzie Shooter, the Nightside’s most fearsome bounty-hunter. But nothing comes easy here. Not life. Not death. And for certain, not happily-ever-after.
Before I can say “I do,” I have one more case to solve as a private eye—and my first assignment as Walker. Both jobs would be a lot easier to accomplish if I weren’t on the run, from friends and enemies alike. And if my bride-to-be weren’t out to collect the bounty on my head...
Green s superlative 12th Nightside novel (after 2011 s A Hard Day s Knight), set in a world hidden deep in the dark and dangerous heart of London, ratchets up the stakes for series protagonist John Taylor in an intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the supernatural. Taylor has been designated the new Walker, the public face of the rulers of the Nightside, so he begins wrapping up his personal investigation business. Then an anonymous e-mail sends Taylor to the Ball of Forever; the guest list is limited to immortals, but a killer manages to strike one down. As Taylor hunts the culprit, he learns that a powerful entity seeks to destroy the entire Nightside. The pace never flags and the sardonic Chandleresque narration ( She didn t lose her innocence; she threw it away with both hands, first chance she got ) is perfectly suited to the Nightside s fantastical mean streets.

Wonderful book been reading the Nightside novels since the first one
Best series for that surreal fantasy fan
I started reading the nightside series back in 2007 and I must say this has been the best group of books that I have ever read in my life.
Green does such a great job at bringing you into the world of the nightside it's almost like you start to obsess over characters and let your imagination throw you into the town where it's always 3 AM.
In my opinion this series would make an awesome TV show or even movie.
