Summary

Children are killing themselves across the state of Tennessee. Is it a horrible coincidence, or are dark forces at work? 

When Jack Nightingale learns that there is a mysterious list of children who are at risk, he takes the case, spurred on by the fact that he knows one of the names, and that makes it personal. His investigation brings him up against a demon from hell who is being used on a mission of revenge. But if Nightingale is to save the children and his own soul, he’ll need help from an old adversary.

Bloody marvellous

This was a weird one, sad and triumphant all in one, bravo Mr Leather, I was pretty in much in terror from the seventh hour onwards, would this be the end of Jack? Sighs in relief, NO, he gets to live on and the reason why made me smile so wide my face is still aching hours later ... read it and laugh ... this one's a winner

I love Stephen Leather but I didn't realise he alsol wrote supernatural stories and I hate those. Sorry. But I couldn't get past the second chapter.

Another fantastic Jack Nightingale story

I was worried that Jack Nightingale had reached his end, but thankfully he wasn't. It was uncomfortable listening to children being involved in suicide, but necessary for the plot. Very well told by Paul Thornley again.

Another amazing Jack Nightingale

Mr Leather cannot write these fast enough for me. I love Jack brought perfectly to life by Paul Thornley who is an excellent narrator - in fact his narration is SO good I prefer to listen to these than read them. Every character from Jack to Wainright to the incredible voicing of Proserpine is fantastic. I’ll admit I found the Tennessee accents
On this one a little grating but hey, he did the best he could and it didn’t ruin the story for me. Only thing that’s disappoints me is that I’ve finished and have to wait goodness how long for another instalment.

Supernatural storyline is not for me.

Summary of book was a bit misleading, as I was looking forward to the usual Stephen Leather novel . I really tried to get into it, but found it quite ridiculous. It might be a 5* review from a listener who enjoys this genre. However a big disappointment to me. Oh , not forgetting the accents; Southern drawl was painful.

Rushed audio, poorly edited, but good book.

I've listened to pretty much every book in the Nightingale series, and this is one really is a step backward in quality. Paul Thornley is great, and the story is good, but the editing is clearly rushed.

There are some parts where the narrator re-reads the same line, long silences that are immersion breaking, I'm pretty sure there are parts where I can hear paper moving, and quite, unfortunately, too many times, I can hear swallowing - this makes me very uncomfortable.

Again, I think most of the creatives involved do a good job, and I'm willing to overlook these flaws to finish the story, but it could use a second go at editing to improve quality.
