Private eye John Taylor swore he’d never return to the Nightside, the hellish netherworld under London, but a girl is missing . . .

‘A fast, fun little roller coaster of a story . . . macabre and thoroughly entertaining’
JIM BUTCHER, No. 1 bestselling author of the Dresden Files

I left the Nightside a long time ago, with my skin and sanity barely intact, and now I make my living in the sunlit streets of London. But business has been slow lately, so when Joanna Barrett showed up at my door, reeking of wealth, asking me to find her runaway teenage daughter, I didn’t say no.

Then I found out exactly where the girl had gone.

The Nightside: that square mile of Hell in the middle of the city, where it’s always three a.m. Where you can walk beside myths and drink with monsters. Where nothing is what it seems and everything is possible.

I swore I’d never return. But there’s a kid in danger and a woman depending on me. So I am going home . . .

Something from the Nightside is the first title in Simon R. Green’s New York Times bestselling Nightside series.


JIM BUTCHER, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files
A fast, fun little roller-coaster of a story . . . macabre and thoroughly entertaining
Devotees of edgy urban fantasists Laurell K. Hamilton and Jim Butcher will eat this one up
Great fun . . . I really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone that likes urban fantasy. There is a hard edge to the book, which I think enhances the chaos and mayhem
Simon Green is known for bringing impossible beings and worlds to life with his words. His most fantastic series, Nightside, kicks off with a book that delves readers deeper into their imagination than they ever thought possible
A fast-paced, macabre excursion into an entertaining world of twisted heroes and rampant weirdness
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
So much fun it's practically irresistible . . . the start of a series of books that could come to dominate our beach reading for many a summer to come
Nobody delivers sharp, crackling dialogue better than Green, and no one whisks readers away to more terrifying adventures or more bewildering locales
A grand tour . . . the set-up and the writing are good enough to make me hope for more in the series in the near future
A fun read, lots of action and some pretty wild character
