In the Nightside, that nightmarish realm hidden deep beneath London, it is forever 3 a.m. Here inhuman creatures walk beside mythic gods. And John Taylor, private detective with a difference, is back, working this secret supernatural heart of London to find an item of inestimable value.

The Unholy Grail is missing . . . and everyone wants its corrosive power.

This time he must use his unique gifts to locate the cup from which Judas drank at the Last Supper; before it falls into the wrong hands. Anyone who touches the cup will gain tremendous power – but they will also be corrupted.

Angels, demons, sinners and saints are all determined to find the Unholy Grail, no matter what the cost. And it isn’t long before they realise exactly who can lead them to it . . .

Agents of Light and Darkness
is the sequel to Something From the Nightside and the second title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


Green's writing style is a mix of creepy and matter-of-fact, perfectly suited to his dark-tinged story. Supernatural and religious elements combine in the Twilight Zone-like setting
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
Considerable skill . . . a quick fun book to read . . . a lot of talent on display . . . so much fun you're only thinking about what comes on the next page - or in the next book
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
Great urban fantasy
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
