No. 4 in this great series; if you haven't read the other 3, then don't start with this one! You won't have a clue!

Hex and The City welcomes the reader back to the Nightside, hidden among the London city center. In this installment, our hero, John Taylor, a sort of PI, is hired by none other than Lady Luck to investigate the origins of the Nightside so that she can figure out why fortune lies more with some than others. He will earn more than money on this one...he will learn the identity of his mother in payment. But this is a tricky one; he is led from one to another of the oldest beings of the Nightside, each of whom has his own ideas about the Nightside's origins and about who John's mother may be. Reminiscent of an Arthurian quest (in more ways than one!), Taylor has to go back in the past, into the deepest depths of the Nightside and face not one but several challenges in his quest before he learns the truth about his mother.

Very good installment; I absolutely love this series!
