Format: Kindle Edition
Being an fan of crime thrillers and having previously read all of Stephen Leathers 'Spider Shepherd' series I was initially unsure about reading this series due to the Supernatural theme. Reading Cursed: A Jack Nightingale Short Story as an intro to the series and Nightfall: The First Jack Nightingale Supernatural Thriller soon had me hooked.

In this the third in the Jack Nightingale series, ex Police Officer turned Private Eye Jack is still disturbed by the events that led to the death of a young girl Sophie in the first book and feels that she is trying to reach him from the other side.

It's not really necessary to read the books in the correct order as enough background and history is provided so that a new reader picking this up can follow the plot. That said I don't think the relationship between the characters can be fully realised without reading the full story.

I like Jack Nightingale as a character, he's not perfect by any means; he smokes too much, drinks too much and treats his loyal assistant Jenny appallingly but all of this makes him more realistic and likeable as a character. The relationship between Jack and Jenny is sparky and makes for entertaining reading.

The ending of the book wasn't what I was expecting but it certainly opens up all sorts of possibilities as to where the author is going to take this series next and I'll certainly be first in line for the next one.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I hadn't read any other Stephen Leather books, and it was only once I'd started that I realised it was the third book in a series! Fortunately I can honestly say it's a great stand alone novel; well written it drew me into the storyline and I could identify with the main character. Yes, there are clichés, such as Jack "sharing" a bottle with a deceased friend at their graveside. I particularly enjoyed the well crafted finale, but I'm slightly annoyed with myself that I didn't spot it being set up.
If you like a bit of supernatural mixed in with crime, then go for this! Good main character, quite quirky. Good fun.

If, like me, you question whether you will enjoy a supernatural thriller, I recommend you try the Jack Nightingale trilogy as it won't disappoint. Stephen Leather demonstrates his ability to master a new genre, offering a rich variety to his work.

While quite different from Leather's Dan Shepherd thrillers, the trilogy, which begins with Nightfall, is just as gripping as we follow the mysteries of Jack Nightingale, a former Met hostage negotiator turned private eye.

Brimming with likeable characters and gritty drama this is an easy read....with a few twists and turns to boot.

Unlike some thrillers, Leather does not lose any pace throughout the book, I was kept intrigued and interested right to the end.

You get to know a little about the main characters and you are left wanting more.... a sure sign of good quality writing.

It is very well written, fast paced, a sprinkling of humour and an obvious love by Leather of crime and the underworld. His passion seeps through on every page the way he cleverly pulls the reader in to find out what happens next.

A great read for thriller fans......... bring on the next one!

I'm a big fan of Stephen Leathers, especially of his Nightingale triology.
I finished reading Nightmare today, and I have to say, it's my favourite of his novels.
Amazing plot twists (just when you think you know what's coming up, something else arrives to slap you in the face!), unsettling scenes, gritty gangsters and deals with demons.... ! Stephen Leather really tackles it all in this amazing book. I simply can't recommend it enough - whether you love horror, crime, psychological novels - there is something in this novel for everybody, even if that does sound a little cliche!
Go on, give it a go. You won't be disappointed. I'm tempted to read it again myself!

I started reading and that was it AGAIN! I didn't put it down even managing to cook while reading. I love the characters. I knew from the first book that Jenny would be pivotal and wasn't disappointed with how her character was brought to the fore. Thank you Stephen for many hours of pleasurable reading.

Please hurry with the fourth I am excited to see what happens next!!

Format: Paperback
Stephen leather continues to enthrall with the latest jack nightingale book, the third in the series.It is absolutely brilliant a cannot put it down book. The tale of jack nightingale continues and the story. Grips from the start and gathers pace with new twists all the way.
With his PA Jenny by his side and his beloved mgb the story hauntingly continues. A little girl Sophie who features in his two previous Nightingale books plays a major part in this latest part of Jacks quest into the dark side. There are moments of humour in this book and in the last part the writing is really provoking and beautiful. Its hard to write without giving away the plot but I can recommend this book if you like tales of of darkness and light then this is for you. Please read all the nightingale books you will be well rewarded and like me cannot wait until the next time Jack Nightingale is told he is going to hell.
Brilliant as always read it.
