Midnight | [Stephen Leather]

Midnight

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.

    "This is part 2 of a duo"

    This book really doesnt stand on its own. You need to first read Nightfall: A Jack Nightingale Supernatural Thriller if you want to make much sense of the plot. Its an OK story that bowls along, but there are some plot lines that lead nowhere like the 'spell' Jack goes though to prevent himself losing his driving licence. A romp, but I think Stephen Leather has written better books.

    Story
    "Fun but derivative"

    I picked this based purely on the sample of the reader's voice. The story is fun, a typical world weary, wise cracking detective in the mould of Chandler or Spenser. Obviously he's a smoker an an ex cop so nothing surprising here. The books, Midnight being the second in the series, quickly draw us into a supernatural world as the protagonist Nightingale, discovers more about his father's satanic past. This all adds a twist to the standard detective noir story.
    There are lots of strange happenings, some more believable, plot wise, than others. You start to really feel for Nightingale as his world falls apart and strange deaths occur.
    At times he does feel if he channelling John Constantine though, especially his calm and wisecracking dealings with demons.
    The high point of the book is the reading by Paul Thornley who delivers the characters with subtlety and made me want to listen to three books in sequence. I'm not sure I'd have persevered if I was reading the books for myself.
    My only quibble is his habit of a long pause after 'said' and a stress on the character's name just after. This book has a lot if 'said Nightingale' s in it and this felt awkward when the rest of the reading was so nuanced.

    My name is Freda and I am in my 60's. I was a graphic designer, now retired. My favourite books are supernatural horror (not short stories)

    "Good supernatural series"

    I have now read and listened to all three books in the Jack Nightingale series and enjoyed them all. They are sometimes scary and sometimes light hearted. A good read
