"Green's superlative twelfth Nightside novel ratchets up the stakes
for series protagonist John Taylor in 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
"There is still the classic Green breakneck pacing, the quirky character twists, the joys of name-drop references (to his other books and pop-culture icons alike), but they're accompanied by a wonderful narrative sense of melancholy, as if Green hates parting with John as much as we do."--Tulsa Book Review (online edition)
"Simon R. Green walks us through his most thoroughly developed setting and its vast assortment of strange, devious, and downright weird characters...The Nightside may be shuttered for now, but Green never forsakes his darlings for long; readers may expect to see John Taylor, Shotgun Suzie or other denizens of the Nightside infiltrate his other works in the future. At the very least, they've been given a proper sendoff. Recommended."--SF Revu (online edition) "The Bride Wore Black Leather has everything I expect from a Nightside book. Taylor is the Sam Spade for the twenty-first century, willing to stare down an angel, a demon or a god. Nightside has the meanest of the mean streets, and John Taylor is right at home there. Sunnyside? Not bloody likely."--Fantasy Literature (online edition)
