Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

"In the secret heart of London, under the cover of endless darkness, the Nightside caters to anyone with any unusual itch that needs to be scratched. 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. I didn't plan it that way. In fact, I once tried to get away. But I came back. And now it seems I'm settling down, with a full-time job (in addition to my work as a very private eye) as Walker-the new Voice of the Authorities in the Nightside-and a wedding in the offing.I'm 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...."

What the Critics Say

"A hugely satisfying windup for one of fantasy's most memorable constructs." (Kirkus Reviews)

“Mark Vietor, the undisputed voice of the Nightside, is in top form delivering Green's final Nightside book.” (AudioFile)

"Green’s superlative twelfth Nightside novel ratchets up the stakes for series protagonist John Taylor in an intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the supernatural…The pace never flags and the sardonic Chandleresque narration is perfectly suited to the Nightside’s fantastical mean streets." (Publisher’s Weekly)

    "I've been waiting for more NIGHTSIDE!"

    Marc Vietor is the voice of the Nightside, he's great at narrating this series. I've read everything Audible has by Simon Green. The Edwin Drood series, " Man with the Golden Tork" etc. In this story you will see how both these series touch upon each other at some points. I really can't wait for the next in the Edwin Drood series to see how things progress. Simon Green really knows how to spin a tale to the most bizarre, and mind bending images. You really have to start with the first book in the series to understand what has happened and who is whom. I also recommend "the Edwin Drood" Series. Not every one likes both, however I found them both suspenseful, humorous, and enjoyable. Time always flew by when listen to any of Simon R. Green's stories. I put Green on the same level as Jim Butcher, they both spin a great story and still have a sense of humor. (I've read all Jim Butcher's books as well) If your following this series then I don't have to sell you, if you've never had experience with the "Nightside" I suggest you start with the first book in the series "Something from the Nightside". Can't wait for next books from Mr. Green

    "The Bride Wore Black Leather: Nightside, Book 12"

    If this is your first time in a Nightside book, go back to the 1st and hear them all. They are an escape from anything serious but this one works best when following the other 11. There is a big cast of characters you get to know through the series of books and I think of them as old friends now no matter how creepy they are. John Taylor magical detective is back in all his glory using his packets of salt and pepper to his "gift" to save the world. Marc Vietor who is the top narrator at Audible can bring out the personality of every character and if the character happens to have multiple personalities he can define each one of those too. Amazing I can hardly believe it's just one person narrating. Listen to this if not just to hear him go. It's great.

    "GOOD BYE "NIGHTSIDE" FOREVER ;-("

    A befitting ending to the most extraordinary series ever!!!!!

    PS
    The new series "GhostFinders " by Simon R. Green , in someway you can call it a spin off, But it doesn't have the same finesse ;-(

    Good bye!!!!

    "One of the absolute best series to read"

    From the first book, to the last, the characters are amazing, kick-ass, funny, sarcastic, and even a touch endearing. I first read this series over 10 years ago, and found I still enjoy it, even more so in this audible format. The voice actor is consistent, and I truly enjoyed his personification of the characters. I will always LOVE this series.

    "Ended on a low note."

    Really struggled to finish this one, felt like scraping the bottom of the barrel and felt forced. Almost like they were like, well we need to wrap this up so lets just throw something together and call it good. Until this book i really enjoyed the series but this one unfortunately left a bad taste in my mouth.

    "Loved this series"

    I absolutely loved Simon R. Green's series! This was my first time with Audiobook and I was quickly hooked on the writing but most importantly, Marc Vietor as a narrator. 😁

    "Sad it's over."

    Loved the series, sad to see the most unlikely characters part ways. That's the only reason it's a 4 out of 5.

    "Fantastic end to a fantastic series!"

    This has been a great ride of a series and it ended in a bang and a few surprises.

    "Growth of the characters and author"

    I enjoyed the books more and more as I went and the author clearly grew in his own understanding and world views. This increased the quality of the books greatly.

    "Solid conclusion to the series."

    I'm going to miss the Nightside books. This book is the same quality I've come to expect from the series. It was a very fun, light read. I do recommend reading the series in order. Also, if you're done with the series and looking for more Nightside, there was a collection of short stories recently released called "Tales from the Nightside", which was also very good. Marc Vietor is a fantastic narrator.

    The story is really about the "Sun King", a hippie, summer-of-love, acid god out to destroy the nightside. I love Mr. Green's ability to make outlandish characters that seem real and permanently stick in your memory.

    "Not a good send off"

    After a bumpy start, this series quickly got up to speed and chugged along nicely. This final / concluding book is a poor end with little spark and even less creativeness. A shame.
