Private eye John Taylor must travel back in time to stop his mother destroying the Nightside, the secret heart of London. Things are about to get complicated . . .

John Taylor was born on the Nightside, where it is always the hour of the wolf, where gods and monsters walk side by side and where every dark question ever asked can be answered – for a price. Unfortunately, the answer he’d long been seeking came with trouble: he found out his mother’s true identity – and discovered that she created his home, the twisted, noir playground known as the Nightside. That means she has the power to destroy it. Turns out, she’s also got the will.

Taylor’s convinced that the key to stopping his mother lies deep in the past, in the days of the Nightside’s creation, so that’s exactly where he’s headed. But travelling through time is a dangerous business, and the past can be a deadly place.

Paths Not Taken
is the fifth title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


Totally enjoyable . . . take a vacation into the Nightside . . . just try not to get lost in it
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
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
Fans of the Nightside series will enjoy the journey into the past of London's underworld
Great fun . . . I really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone who likes urban fantasy. There is a hard edge to the book, which I think enhances the chaos and mayhem
Sam Spade meets Sirius Black . . . inventively gruesome
Superlative . . . an intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the supernatural
