Synopsis

Midnight by Stephen Leather

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. If he's going to save his sister, he's going to have to do what he does best - negotiate. But any negotiation with the forces of darkness comes at a terrible price. And first Jack must ask himself the question: is every soul worth saving?

Reviews

'A disturbing, blood-chilling read from a writer at the top of his game' **** -- Sunday Express

'Wickedly entertaining ... A darkly comic, and creepy, deftly written delight from a top-rank thriller writer.'
Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Another great thriller from Stephen Leather but this time with a devilish twist!'
James Herbert 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
