The gripping, suspenseful, and wry 10th tale in the Nightside supernatural detective series proves every but the equal of Jim Butcher's better-known Harry Dresden books. Longtime fans and first timers alike will applaud Green's blend of fantasy, mystery, and humor. (Publishers Weekly)
May I have some more? Marc Vietor Rocks this series!
This is not the book to start with, though each in the series can stand alone, they really are better read in order... Dark, funny, excellent world building!
Can't wait to see what's in store for John Taylor now that "Walker" is gone... or is he?

I just don't even want to spend the effort to write a real review of this book. The NIGHTSIDE series, which started out so well, has become a joke. With each recent installment, Green repeats the same formula used before. Even the same words! For details, please see my reviews of the previous two novels, The Unnatural Inquirer and Just Another Judgement Day. Honestly, I wouldn't have even picked up The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny if I hadn't already purchased it (and the rest of the novels) when it was on sale at Audible. That'll teach me. The audio production and narration by Marc Vietor is excellent, though.
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
I really enjoy this series. John Taylor, His teenage secretary, Suzy Shooter, Walker and the rest of the gang are always up to shenanigans. These books are very light and fun. They are fast moving and they are a great distraction from real life. This is another great book.
I am a glass artist, working from my studio at home. Audio books keep my mind stimulated while my hands are busy.
fantastic characters and descriptive passages, very entertaining and funny. A great read for a teenager, as the hero is so unwilling to conform and accept responsibilities forced onto him, even within his strange unconformist world.
I do not enjoy Mickey Spillane genre novels
I didn't make it through the first chapter
Marc Vietor narration is very good.
If you like this genre, I expect you will enjoy it
Yes, It is better because the narrator acts out the different roles and makes the tory more interesting.
When Jhon kills Walker.
He uses different voices for different characters.
The verry last sceene when Walker confesses to John.
Great overall book and I love the way they leave you hanging, so you will read the next one in the series.
This book is a good balance of great character portrayal by the narrator and Simon Green's amazing writing. My husband started me on his books and they just get better and better. I have to pace myself with the Nightside series so I don't run out before the next one's out! Now if they would just do his Fisher & Hawke series, too!
Being the boss isn't all it's cracked up to be where you never live the same night twice.
Smart, funny, quirky, action-packed...who could want more?
"Uncanny, all good, nothing bad"
Really enjoyed this one as I did the other novels. Just what you expect from the author providing an imaginative and funny take on this unusual private eye.
Particularly liked the ending.
