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)
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.
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?
"Story begins to tie up story arc loose ends."
Feels like a novel and then a short story. Really confusing when listening. One story concludes then something else starts. Shoot the editor.
"My favorite Simon R Green !"
So much of Walker ! I loved it ! And the twists ! I was riveted ! Thank you for this Nightside ! Dialog was so real it was like I was standing right there ! Marc Vietor should play Walker in the movie ! The performance is outstanding ! Thank you Marc ! Thank you Again Simon R Green !
"Always good to check in with John Taylor"
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.
"a coming of age story"
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.
"Mickey Spillane + Scfi genre"
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.
"I love Simon R. Green"
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?
"This series has lost it"

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.
