Lady Luck wants to hire John Taylor to investigate the Nightside itself . . . but this case is going to get personal.

John Taylor is a private detective with a supernatural gift for finding things, but his latest case is different. Lady Luck has hired him to investigate the origins of the Nightside, the shadowy heart of London where it’s always 3 a.m. – and place where human and inhuman can feed their darkest desires. But the further he delves into the history of the Nightside, the more Taylor realises the case might be related to the greatest mystery in his own life: exactly who – or what – his mother is.

He’s been warned: when it comes to his mother, the truth could be dangerous. In fact, it could be downright catastrophic – and not just for the Nightside, but for all of Existence.

But John Taylor is an investigator: finding things is in his very nature. And now he’s close to discovering the truth, nothing can stop him.

No matter what the consequences.

Hex and the City
is the fourth title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


All the elements of a classic PI story . . . I find this series to be totally enjoyable, and this latest one is no exception . . . Green is a natural story teller with a wonderful imagination. Think Mickey Spillane writing episodes of Millennium. He makes the Nightside come alive in such a vivid way that you wonder if maybe he hasn't actually been there himself. Take a vacation with Green into The Nightside
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
Infused with a wonderful dark humour that is as unique as the Nightside itself
The Nightside books are quick, easy, and fun reads. Their strength is Green's setting: the Nightside is bursting with flavour
Green is a master chef. Fans of Harry Dresden would find John Taylor a terrific read . . . but then again, so would any fan of good, dark urban fantasy. Recommended
Hex and the City is for me the best Nightside book yet, it further enlarges the Nightside universe both by showing more of what the Nightside has to offer . . . and also nailing that dark gritty and often times humorous setting on the spot . . . You won't be disappointed
