Review of Something from the Nightside by Simon R. Green
Nightside #1

"Something from the Nightside" is a delectably imagined urban fantasy, the kind that is not for the faint of heart or idealistic of mind. "Nightside" is an area that co-exists with London, where the sun never shines (but the Moon and Stars do), where it's always 3 AM, where the worst perversions can occur, and where danger is a matter of breathing--ever-present. Monsters of mythology and legend exist there, but so do apparently "normal" individuals. John Taylor was born and raised in the Nightside, born to a mother not human, whom he never knew, and a father who drank himself to death after she disappeared. Taylor has been gone from the Nightside for five years, scuffling to make a living in low-rent London as a private investigator. He has a very important gift: he can find anything and anybody; and in this introduction to the series, he is tasked to find a runaway daughter.

Author Simon R. Green writes deftly and has a wildly creative imagination. This is urban fantasy on the razor's edge (sometimes quite literally), just the way I like it: no holds barred, no punches pulled. Personally I can't wait to leap into the next in the series.
