Description:

****“Simon Green’s Nightside is a macabre and thoroughly entertaining world.”**—#1 *New York Times *bestselling author Jim Butcher* ***John Taylor works in the Nightside—the gaudy, neon noir, secret heart of London, where it’s always three in the morning, where gods and monsters make deals and seek pleasures they won’t find anywhere else. He has a gift for finding things. And sometimes what he's hired to locate can be very, very dangerous indeed. Right now, for example, he's searching for The Unholy Grail, the cup that Judas drank from at the Last Supper. It corrupts all who touch it—but it also gives enormous power. So he's not the only one hunting. Angels, devils, sinners and saints—they’re all out there, tearing apart The Nightside, seeking the dark goblet. And it’s only a matter of time until they realize that the famous John Taylor, the man with the gift for finding things, can lead them straight to it… *From the Paperback edition.* ** ### Review “I really enjoyed Green’s first John Taylor novel and the second one is even better. The usual private eye stuff—with a bizarre kick.”—*Chronicle* “The Nightside novels are a great blending of Lovecraft and Holmes. [*Agents of Light and* *Darkness*] is an action-packed thriller, a delightful private eye investigative fantasy tale.”—Midwest Book Review “If you like your noir pitch-black, then return to the Nightside.”—*The University City Review* ### About the Author **Simon R. Green **is the *New York Times* bestselling author of the Secret Histories Novels, the Novels of the Nightside, the Ghost Finders series, and the Deathstalker series.
