The Unnatural Inquirer: A Novel of the Nightside (Nightside #08) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the Nightside, that secret square mile located in the dark heart of London where the sun never rises and people can fraternize with every myth and monster imaginable.

John Taylor is a P.I. with the special ability to locate anyone or anything. The Unnatural Inquirer, the Nightside's most notorious gossip rag, has offered him a million pounds to find a DVD purported to contain an actual recording of the afterlife. John doesn't know if it's true, but someone — or something — thinks so, and will stop at nothing to possess the disc.

Review:

"The engaging eighth book in Green's popular offbeat Nightside series (after 2006's Hell to Pay) drops another paranormal mystery in the lap of series hero John Taylor, a PI in the shadowy realm of Nightside. Pen Donavon, who claims to have a DVD depicting actual footage of the afterlife, has vanished shortly after signing an exclusive deal with the tabloid Unnatural Inquirer. Various factions seeking to control the Nightside are leaving a considerable body count behind as they hunt for him. Accompanied by sexy half-demon reporter Bettie Divine, Taylor navigates the treacherous terrain with his typical skill before tracking down the real force behind Donavon's disappearance. Green skillfully blends action and humor, and shows no sign of running out of ideas. This installment will undoubtedly rope in new readers who enjoy his blend of dark humor and the supernatural." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The magical noir subgenre has become very crowded lately, but Green claims his own enjoyably edgy piece of it....A dryly humorous, darkly quirky vacation from mundane reality." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"More fast, fun, adventurous detection in a setting in which nearly anything's possible." Booklist

Review:

"Green skillfully blends action and humor, and shows no sign of running out of ideas. This installment will undoubtedly rope in new readers who enjoy his blend of dark humor and the supernatural." School Library Journal
