Book Description

A powerful story of love, shocking secrets and malignant forces from bestselling author Josephine Cox.

All Jack's life, the nightmares had haunted him, dragging him back to a place where it was always midnight…

Molly and Jack are deeply in love but their relationship is being torn apart by Jack's nightmares. Trapped in a place where he is taunted by eyes in the gloom, it is becoming harder for Molly to pull him free, and even when daylight comes the haunting visions remain.

Realising that Jack is being driven close to the edge, Molly urges him to seek help, and with their relationship faltering, Jack decides to hunt for answers.

His search takes him back to the place where he grew up, and it soon becomes clear that he must trace people from his past, particularly the one person he could turn to through his troubled childhood. But Jack could never have imagined the true horrors of what he is about to uncover…

More About the Author

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Special 3 Mar. 2011
Format:Hardcover
Slow but entertaining with a predictable story line and plenty of padding. Some characters have been given unimaginative names. Ideal for a fast reader on a long train journey.

3.0 out of 5 stars average read 6 Nov. 2011
By mocha
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading this book , however it does contain a great deal of repeat reading and feel this was to pad it out to actually make the 400 pages in paperback - it could have been written equally as well in 300 pages - certainly not one of her best books, but an enjoyable read all the same.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst books I have ever read! 6 April 2012
By Dee
Format:Paperback
I was given this book as a present and looked forward to reading it as Josephine cox was a new author for me. I am astounded that it actually got into print as I believe a child could have written better! It seemed to break every rule of writing and was stuffed full of repetition and cliches. The part where one of the characters was given the good news that she only had 'psychosis' made me laugh out loud!? I can guarantee this will be my last book by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time :( 14 Jan. 2012
Format:Paperback
This was probably the most boring book I've ever read and I really didn't enjoy the style of writing. The first 380 or so pages could easily be condensed into about 50, there is a LOT of repetition. I persevered in reading to the end and the book was rushed to the end and resolved in about 15 pages. I couldn't even bring myself to take it to a charity shop, it's gone straight in the recycle bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful book don't buy it 9 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first josephine cox book I've bought,and it was awful enough to prompt me to review it online. The writing is attrocious, the characters contrived and stereotypical and you can virtually predict what will happen next in the story. Absolute rubbish, don't waste your money!

2.0 out of 5 stars Promising start, but..... 12 Dec. 2011
Format:Paperback
The story started off very well. It was intriguing and captivating and showed much promise of more surprises and thrills to come. The characters were all building quite nicely. But then it started to lose its momentum, and I found myself, by half way through, just reading on because I had to find out where the story would take me.

Towards the end, the momentum picked up again, but then all of the threads of the storyline just snapped shut, one by one, and I was left in a bewildered daze.

I was particularly unhappy about the way that one of the leading characters suddenly was killed off in just a few short paragraphs. I have no argument with the reality of sudden death, but there was no continuation into what happened next, or the impact that the tragedy had upon the other characters who had surrounded her, and been part of her life, up until that point. She was just dead, and so was her part in the story.

The book was OK, and I wouldn't like to distract you if you were just about to pick it up, but there are plenty of other book which I would choose to read before Midnight!

1.0 out of 5 stars Midnight Disaster! 6 Mar. 2011
Format:Hardcover
As a fan of Josephine cox I was looking forward to Midnight.

It was absoulutely terrible, the story was weak the characters where confused. If she wrote it once, she wrote in a thousand ways how much Thomas loved Eileen total waffle padding out the pages.

A shame as she usually churns out a decent story. Divorced and Deadly was hilarious.

So no idea what happened here.

I found myself skipping bits out of boredom and repetitivness. The book is poorly edited, with characters names mixed up and mis-spelt words a plenty.

A total waste of money would not recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Josephine Cox Midnight 16 Nov. 2011
By Sarah c
Format:Paperback
Excruciating read!
I have never read anything by this author and had to keep checking whether she had written anything before. I cannot master the energy to finish it. I have already skipped loads as it is repeated so often. I feel like I am reading something by a child.Sorry but it has to be the worst book I have ever read.
The best bit was her introduction!!
