The Bride Wore Black Leather by Simon R. Green (Nightside #12)

The Bride Wore Black Leather (Nightside, #12)The Bride Wore Black Leather by Simon R. Green

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jacket Blurb:  John Taylor is marrying the love of his life, Suzie Shooter, the Nightside’s most fearsome bounty hunter. But before he can walk down the aisle he has one more case to solve as a private eye — a case that has him on the run from friends and enemies both, with his bride-to-be looking to collect the bounty on his head...

I really enjoyed this book.  If you haven't read the series yet, I highly recommend starting at the beginning.

Our man John Taylor is on the cusp of his wedding.  He asks his secretary Cathy to find one more private investigator job for him to do, something that can be finished in one night.  What is supposed to be a straightforward "find this" job, leads to the King of Skin's murder, a mysterious message "...let the sun shine in.", and a horrible misunderstanding that has Taylor running for his life.

I loved this one for the variety and how seamlessly the separate stories seemed to flow together, with John's pending wedding to Suzie flowing underneath all.  The usual Gods and Major Players make an appearance, Taylor teams up with Julian Advent (the two characters really do balance each other well), and we get the usual trip through Nightside and some cool new place.  This time it was Green Henge, Nightsides version of Stone Henge.  Nice twist, here.   

All my favorite characters made an appearance - Julian Advent, Eddie the Punk God of the Straight Razor, Dead Boy, the whole Oblivion Clan including Hadleigh.  I'd like to see more of Hadleigh in future books, actually.

Highly Recommended.
