Private eye John Taylor is – grudgingly – back in the Nightside, because the Unholy Grail is missing . . . and everyone wants its corrosive power.

John Taylor, private detective with a difference, is back in the Nightside, that nightmarish realm hidden deep beneath London where it is forever 3 a.m.

This time he must use his supernatural gifts to locate the Unholy Grail; 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.


'Great urban fantasy' BookBrowser.
Simon R. Green's Nightside series is a delight from beginning to end... The Nightside books are, unashamedly, all about having a bloody good time reading works that have more than their fair share of "ics." Fantastic, comedic, sarcastic, caustic and heroic are just a few that spring to mind
SF Site
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

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

Even better than the first ... one of the easiest and fastest reads I've had this summer
