Hex and the City, Nightside Book 4

Author: Simon R. Green
Publisher: Audible Frontiers
Year: 2008
Narrator: Marc Vietor

In the fourth book of the Nightside series, private investigator, John Taylor, is hired to find out the origins of the Nightside by Lady Luck. John gathers together Madman, Sinner and Sinner's girlfriend, the demon succubus, Pretty Poison, to help investigate.  Like all the Nightside books so far, this was a good listen. There's not a lot of hidden meaning in the books but they are enjoyable and easy to  listen to while doing other tasks (such as huffing and puffing in my workout). I was surprised that we, the readers, found out this early in the series who John's mother is. For some reason, I expected the author to carry that mystery on a bit longer.

Marc Vietor is a good narrator. He's got that gritty, noir detective voice that suits the story well.
