The Good, The Bad, and the Uncanny
by Simon R. Green
-Simon is an intelligent, eloquent and well read writer able to casually throw in references to Dante’s Inferno, Macbeth and the Bible without sounding pretentious. I’m almost certain there are other references in there I overlooked.
-The Good, The Bad, and the Uncanny is the tenth book in the Nightside series. I picked it up without reading any of the previous novels, so keep that in mind when reading this review.
In a tucked away part of London where nightmares run wild and things are rarely what they seem, John Taylor is a PI with a sordid past. Bored because life is too perfect, John goes looking for trouble and finds it, mirroring the sentiment that we all feel, “[some days] you just shouldn’t get out of bed.”
