The Bride Wore Black Leather (#12)

Previous: A Hard Day’s Knight (#11) | Next: Tales from the Nightside

In the secret heart of London, under the cover of endless darkness, is the Nightside. But enter at your own risk. The party animals who live here may be as inhuman as their appetites… 

My name is John Taylor. The Nightside is my home, and I’ve got a brand new full-time job there (in addition to my private eye work) as Walker—the Voice of the Authorities. I’m also marrying the love of my life, Suzie Shooter, the Nightside’s most fearsome bounty-hunter. But nothing comes easy here. Not life. Not death. And for certain, not happily-ever-after. 

Before I can say “I do,” I have one more case to solve as a private eye—and my first assignment as Walker. Both jobs would be a lot easier to accomplish if I weren’t on the run, from friends and enemies alike. And if my bride-to-be weren’t out to collect the bounty on my head…


“Another dramatic, inventive, and highly selective orgy of murder and mayhem. A hugely satisfying windup for one of fantasy’s most memorable constructs.”


“Superlative. An intricate and action-filled plot that seamlessly blends crime and the supernatural. The pace never flags and the sardonic Chandleresque narration is perfectly suited to the Nightside’s fantastical mean streets.”

Publishers Weekly

“Exactly what Green’s fans have come to expect from the steamy streets of Nightside.”
