OK, its compendium time, within this offering are the two books: Hell to Pay and The Unnatural Enquirer. As a fan of Simon's Deathwalker and now his Secret Histories novels, I've gone back and started to enjoy his Nightside series that are now being published in the UK by Solaris. This is the fourth book by them in this format so its been an enjoyable ride but for established fans of the series it might come as a bit of a shock to see a title out there with no relation to any that have gone before until that is they begin reading and discover the two books within.
As usual with Simon's writing, its pretty fast paced, the twists and turns within are worthy of the film noir genre and its not without great homage to the gumshoes of the past that Simon tips his hat. I love this series and it's a series that continues to grow from me from novel to novel. His writing is some of the best in the genre and it's a sheer delight to pick up the next book in each. Add to this the fact that it's a twofer and you've got a real bargain.
