The second book of short stories featuring supernatural detective Jack Nightingale, who fights his battles in the shadows, in the grey areas where demons and monsters seek their prey, where one mistake can cost him his life - or worse. In this collection of nine short stories, Nightingale matches wits against haunted houses, serial killers back from the dead, disturbed spirits, demon dolls and monsters from hell.

Very much enjoyed it.

Particularly enjoyed the first two stories.

I'd love to know why the author decided to write Jenny out and send Jack off to the states.

Up to him I suppose. With or without Jenny a very good listen.

Paul Thornley great as always

Shaun Attwood arrived in Phoenix, Arizona, a penniless business graduate from a small industrial town in England. Within a decade, he became a stock-market millionaire. But he was leading a double life. After taking his first Ecstasy pill at a rave in Manchester as a shy student, Shaun became intoxicated by the party lifestyle that would change his fortune. Years later, in the Arizona desert, Shaun became submerged in a criminal underworld, throwing parties for thousands of ravers and running an Ecstasy ring in competition with the Mafia mass murderer Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano.

Why get an American narrator to read a book by a bloke from Widnes? Every time he says mate or la I cringe. It's a bizarre choice to have made and it goes someway to spoiling a very decent book.

Bring back Jenny.

It's like Batman without Robin. It's just not the same.

I enjoyed it. But not has much as the earlier books.
