Product Description

An exciting short story, part of the Jack Nightingale series by bestselling author Stephen Leather - thrillers with an occult twist.

Jack Nightingale - lives in the shadows, fights in the dark.

Ex-cop turned private eye Jack Nightingale is used to dealing with tricky situations. He's faced down the powers of hell a couple of times, too. In this new short story, he's called in to help a policeman who's lying at death's door. The doctors can't work out what's wrong. But the dying man's colleagues swear blind that he was cursed by a gypsy during the Dale Farm clearance. And Nightingale could be his only hope.

Jack Nightingale is the hero of Stephen Leather's supernatural detective novels. There are five books in the critically acclaimed series: NIGHTFALL, MIDNIGHT, NIGHTMARE, NIGHTSHADE and LASTNIGHT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 27 Oct 2013
By M. Koen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expected a bit more of the ex policeman behaviour but I got something different which has left me wanting more which is just as well as the way the book ended there are more to come. A bit odd at times but a page turner just the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good 23 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A short Jack Nightingale story and quite interesting, you need to read at least the first book before any short reads as you won't understand the character. Buy for a quick read.
