In the first in Simon R. Green's Nightside series, private detective John Taylor must delve into the dark netherworld he once called home in order to save a missing girl.
'A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world' - Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files
Private eye John Taylor swore he'd never return to the Nightside, the hellish netherworld under London. But now a young girl is missing . . .
John Taylor is a private detective with a difference. He's a child of the Nightside, with a supernatural ability - he can find things that are lost.
But it's been a long time since Taylor left that hidden netherworld where fantasy and reality co-exist and it is always 3am.
He has no intention of ever returning . . . until a distraught mother arrives at his office with a tragic tale and a bag full of cash. Joanne Barrett wants her daughter back, and she'll pay a small fortune to make it happen.
Of course, Taylor knows exactly where the girl is. The Nightside is calling him . . .
Something from the Nightside is the first title in Simon R. Green's New York Times bestselling Nightside series.
