John Taylor is back, which means all hell is about to break loose in the Nightside (pretty much literally). The dashing--and somewhat arrogant--former private eye thought things might quiet down after he navigated some elvish politics and refused an unwelcome job offer. He should have known better.
This is the Nightside, after all. And now he's got the job he never wanted...and Excalibur's turned up in the mail.From official release/information:
Product Description: John Taylor is a P.I. with a special talent for finding lost things in the dark and secret center of London known as the Nightside. He's also the reluctant owner of a very special-and dangerous-weapon: Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur. To find out why he was chosen to wield it, John must consult the Last Defenders of Camelot, a group of knights who dwell in a place that some find more frightening than the Nightside.
