Private eye John Taylor has survived war in the Nightside, but it has left a power vacuum . . . one just begging to be filled.

Welcome to the Nightside, the hidden netherworld in the heart of London, where the human and inhuman go to get their kicks, provided they’re willing to pay the price in whatever currency the seller demands.

The recent war has come to an end, but now there is no one in charge, and plenty of ruthless people who will go to absurd lengths to grab that power.

Jeremiah Griffin, one of the last immortal humans, is one, but his plans are obstructed when his granddaughter disappears. It’s no surprise when he calls on John Taylor to find her – after all, finding people is what he does – but the job is not as simple as it appears.

And to make matters worse, someone – or some Thing – is blocking Taylor’s supernatural gift, so he’ll have to work the old-fashioned way . . . and quickly.

Hell to Pay is the seventh title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


Absolutely fantastic
Green throws in a numberof left-field surprises, spicing things up with an attack of fanatical nuns (called the Salvation Army Sisterhood), a bloodthirsty gangster and a DNA-stealing Charnel Chimera. Indeed, the most entertaining aspect lies not in Taylor's investigation butin anticipating what Green's twisted imagination will conjure next
JIM BUTCHER, No. 1 bestselling author of the Dresden Files
A macabre and thoroughly entertaining world
Sam Spade meets Sirius Black . . . inventively gruesome
Fast, fun, adventurous detection in a setting in which nearly anything's possible
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
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
