Book Description

The second book in the Jack Nightingale supernatural thriller series.

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?

Product Description


A disturbing, blood-chilling read from a writer at the top of his game. (James Baxter Sunday Express)


'A disturbing, blood-chilling read from a writer at the top of his game' **** -- Sunday Express 'The pages just flew by as I was so gripped ... I cannot wait to read the next instalment of this exciting series.' -- '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

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced horror sequel 23 Jan. 2011
Less of a follow on from "Nightfall" - more of a continuation and I would recommend reading Nightfall first.

As with the previous book I was not as bowled over as I usually am with the author's works but I suspect he is having a little fun with these and adopting a slightly different style of writing. This is very fast paced with a low level of characterisation and a lightish approach to evil! It avoids true horror with the usual unpleasantness and detail while still dealing with the Devil's minions and humans with very dark hearts.

I think the author wants to have fun and wants you to join him and it just about works - a good lead character (and faithful assistant) and some realism in the way the Police do investigate the way that death seems to follow him around. The weakness is that nothing major is resolved and it is very much like the previous book - I suspect this is the one story told over three books but we will have to wait for the next one to find out.

This is the book following on from Nightfall where Jack finds out who his father was and what happened at his birth.

Jack Nightingale, private investigator, is looking for his sister to stop her from meeting the fate that their father gave them from birth. It is a fast paced good read, that keeps you wanting to know more. This book (and the previous) involves demons and rituals.

Why do the people in his life keeping killing themselves? who is the devil behind that one? when is the killer going to come after Jack? He has saved his sisters soul this time... but is he going to be in time before the next fatality happens?

I have read may genres of books but This series is a mixture of supernatural and detective and its great to combine these it works very well. I thouroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait until the next one... does Jack ever have a love life? Where is his sister now? Can Jack get to her in time? who knows... only time will tell. Bring on another book in this series please..... soon....

A credit to Stephen Leather.

first in the series is... Nightfall buy them both if you have not alreadyyou wont regret it.

Fantastic 2nd read it reveals more twists and unexpected turns, which leaves you reaching out for book 3, and lucky me have discovered there's a book 4 and 5. Cant wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made for TV 5 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I came across the first Jack Nightingale novel by accident and was instantly taken with its originality, mixing an old fashioned gumshoe novel with a dash of Dennis Wheatley and a great dollop of tongue-in-cheek banter from the hero of the tale.

Midnight was even better and works because your disbelief can be utterly suspended given the subject matter. The big question for me is, who is it that keeps warning him that he and his sister are going to hell? Hopefully the third installment will tell me.

I have tried other Stephen Leather books on the strength of these two. They weren't nearly as good simply because he can stretch disbelief to breaking point in his "real world" novels, but it works fine in Nightingale's world.

And if there are any producers out there, this is a tale made for a tv drama series with a script that is more or less ready made.
