The Unnatural Inquirer by Simon R. Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jacket Blurb: The publisher of The Unnatural Inquirer - the
Nightside-'s most notorious rag - has offered John Taylor one million
pounds to find a man who claims to have evidence of the afterlife stored
on a DVD. The Inquirer made the guy a sweet deal. Then he and the disc vanished. And if Taylor's not careful, he may be next.
#8 in the series. A fun light read, perfect for a road trip, holiday weekend, or sitting in an airport.
This was a return to what attracted me to the books - before the Lilith War that tried to destroy Nightside - where John Taylor has to do a bit of legwork, the reader is introduced to some new and interesting characters, and are caught up with some regulars.
What I especially liked was the character development; Taylor is not only challenged with the new assignment, but finds sometimes the challenge is a bit more personal. I appreciated how Green handled John and his sidekick Bettie Divine, investigative reporter. The reader knows Green is leading to something, and the resolution is most satisfactory.
Green's writing continues to mature and solidify - highly recommend the series.
