"In the wake of the war that almost brought the Nightside to total ruin, there's a power vacuum begging to be filled - and some think I should take charge. I don't agree. Neither does the immortal known as Griffin. Wealthy beyond reason, he has his own ideas about who should be running things. Still, when his granddaughter - and designated heir - is kidnapped, he calls on me to find her. But someone - or some Thing - is blocking my special gift. So this time, I'm going to have to do my job the hard way. And quickly, or the Griffin will have to choose a new heir...."
Listen to the entire Nightside series.

"This is an absolutely fantastic and compulsively readable entry in Green's long-running Nightside series. Witty banter, a well-constructed plot and compelling characters combines to make this one hell of a read." (Romantic Times)
"Green is a demented and disturbed genius, and I mean that in the nicest way! If I ever need help, I want to call on John Taylor." (Crimespree Magazine)
Say something about yourself!
I started listening to this series several month ago. This one is by far one of the best. I usually listen in my spare time, but got involved and couldn't take my headset off. I listened in the car, at work, etc. IT is great.
Something New, Not same old Fantasy storyline
They are all Fun
Must Read this Series.
Dresden files and Iron Druid are other good ones :)
Great story, terrific narration, appropriately used music, and crack production -- which means it must be an Audible digital audiobook! Ahhh, it indeed is!
Hell to Pay is just plain fun to hear voiced as what we get is a well-crafted hard-boiled mystery that adds considerable detail to the story of the Nightside and its denizens in a tightly focused manner. Most of the support characters are not really involved in this story, though some are mentioned are mentioned in passing, such as Susie Shooter and The Punk God of the Razor, Razor Eddie. The latter deserves a horror novel all to his own. This is a refreshing return to the earlier novels in this series as Taylor really does use his own smarts to solve the mystery and bring things to the usual literally bloody conclusion. Good show, Simon!
Cat Eldridge / Green Man Review
I had heard good things about this series and decided to take a chance on this book. Started out ok and I thought the narrator was good. Unfortunately this story goes nowhere. Reititious and boring. Plot made no sense, characters have unexplained supernatural powers, and a myriad of other flaws throughout the book. The writing was juvenile;for awhile I thought the book could've been written for children. But then again, sexual innuendo, transvestitism, etc. suggest not. Cannot believe I made to the end. Lame, lame, lame story. Do not waste a credit on this book.
