Review 'Another great thriller from Stephen Leather but this time with a devilish twist!' -- James Herbert on NIGHTFALL 'A wicked read' -- Anthony Horowitz on NIGHTFALL 'Suffused with mysterious pentagrams, not to mention a creeping sense of evil, I suspect that down-to-earth Nightingale is a man we'll hear more of' -- Daily Mail on NIGHTFALL 'Dark and exhilarating, you'd better keep the lights on when you're reading it' -- Candis on NIGHTFALL Praise for Stephen Leather's Dan Shepherd novels -- : 'This is an aggressively topical novel but a genuinely thrilling one, too.' -- Daily Telegraph 'As tough as British thrillers get ... gripping' -- Irish Independent Product Description Jack Nightingale found it hard enough to save lives when he was a cop. Now he needs to save a soul -- his sister's. But to save her he has to find her and they've been separated since birth. When everyone Jack talks to about his sister dies horribly, he realises that someone, or something, is determined to keep them apart.

Jack Nightingale has saved his own soul and now has to save his sister's.

This is the second in the Jack Nightingale trilogy and it picks up exactly where we left off in book 1 - Nightfall.

More weird spirits, spells, horror, suspense and mystery.

A thoroughly good read - Stephen Leather has kept up the story extremely well.

Still highly recommended. ( )

Despite the plethora of vampire/zombie/werewolf stories flooding the shelves recently it’s been a long time since I read a so-called ‘supernatural thriller’ that did actually thrill me: Midnight is a chiller par excellence and has restored my faith in the genre.
Midnight is the sequel to Nightfall but works well as a stand alone: former copper Jack Nightingale discovers he was sold to the devil by his Satanist dad as a newborn and, having dodged that bullet, now learns he has a [previously unknown] sister who has also been promised to the inferno.
Viewed with suspicion by his former colleagues in the police, under constant threat by ‘the powers of darkness’ and with friends and family dying horribly, Jack battles to save the soul of his stranger sister – and succeeds, but at a price… The next book promises creeping terror galore! ( )
