Private eye John Taylor has a supernatural gift for finding things – but when the legendary sword Excalibur finds him instead, he really wishes it hadn’t . . .

Most people would be happy to receive the legendary sword Excalibur in the mail one day, but private eye John Taylor knows better. The weapon is extremely powerful, but it is also extremely dangerous and – of course a portent of perilous times to come.

If he’s going to find out more about the sword, and why he’s been chosen to wield it, Taylor must find and investigate the Last Defenders of Camelot.

And to do that, he’s going to have to leave the Nightside, a place where your dreams can come true-as long as your nightmares don’t get you first – to visit a place he fears far more.

London Proper.

A Hard Day’s Knight is the eleventh title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series


JIM BUTCHER, No. 1 bestselling author of the Dresden Files
A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world
Fast, fun, adventurous detection in a setting in which nearly anything's possible
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
Readers who prefer their gore with huge melodramatic flourishes and a side of slyly amusing repartee will find John Taylor at least the equal of Jim Butcher's Chicago wizard PI Harry Dresden
Sam Spade meets Sirius Black . . . inventively gruesome
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
Totally enjoyable . . . take a vacation into the Nightside . . . just try not to get lost in it
Extremely entertaining
