In the seventh novel in Simon R. Green's popular fantasy series, the war in the Nightside has come to an end, leaving a power vacuum that is just begging to be filled.
Private eye John Taylor has survived war in the Nightside, but it has left a power vacuum . . . one just begging to be filled.
The war in the Nightside - the hidden netherworld in the heart of London - has come to an end, but now there is no one in charge, and plenty of ruthless people who will go to absurd lengths to take that power.
Jeremiah Griffin, one of the last immortal humans, is one, but his plans are obstructed when his granddaughter disappears. It's no surprise when he calls on John Taylor to find her - after all, finding people is what he does - but the job is not as simple as it appears.
And to make matters worse, someone - or something - is blocking Taylor's supernatural gift, so he'll have to work the old-fashioned way . . . and quickly.
Hell to Pay is the seventh title in Simon R. Green's New York Times bestselling Nightside series.
