Description

My name is John Taylor. I’m a PI for hire in the Nightside, the dark and corrupt city within the city of London. Where the sun never shines and where pleasure and horror are always on sale—for the right price.

Not a nice place to visit or a nice place to live. So you wouldn’t think I would care that it was about to be destroyed, by none other than my very own long-missing, not-quite-human mom.

But I do. I was born here, I live here, and I got friends here. They might not all be acceptable in polite company, but they’re my friends, nonetheless.

I know that I’m the only one who can stop her. The trick is, how to do it without fulfilling this prophecy that says whatever action I take, not only is the Nightside doomed, but the rest of the world will soon follow…



Praise For Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth (A Nightside Book #6)

Praise for Simon R. Green’s Novels of the Nightside:

“A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world.” – Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files

“Fast paced and amusing, as well as packed with inventive details.”—The Denver Post

“Fast, fun, adventurous detection in a setting in which nearly anything’s possible.” – Booklist

“Sam Spade meets Sirius Black…inventively gruesome.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Superlative…An intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the
supernatural.” – Publishers Weekly

“Readers who prefer their gore with huge melodramatic flourishes and a side of slyly amusing repartee will find Joh Taylor at least the equal of Jim Butcher’s Chicago wizard PI Harry Dresden.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Cross The X-Files with The Twilight Zone, add a pinch of The Outer Limits and a dash of Eerie, Indiana, and one might have a glimmer of an idea what the Nightside is like.” – BookBrowser

Totally enjoyable…take a vacation into the Nightside…just try not to get lost in it.” – Crimespree

“A captivating tale starring a heroic and endearing character whose thoughts when he is in danger are hilarious.” – Midwest Book Review

 “Taylor is the Sam Spade for the twenty-first century, willing to stare down an angel, a demon, or a god. [The] Nightside has the meanest of the mean streets, and John Taylor is right at home there.” – Fantasy Literature
