Publisher's Summary

A killer is murdering Goths with relish - skinning and butchering them. The cops aren’t getting anywhere so Jack Nightingale’s nemesis, Superintendent Chalmers, asks him for help. Nightingale discovers that the murdered Goths had one thing in common: a tattoo connected to the secretive, Satanic, child-sacrificing cult called the Order Of Nine Angles.
As Nightingale closes in on the killers, the tables are turned and he finds himself in the firing line, along with his friends and family. The Order will stop at nothing to protect their secrets and Nightingale realises that there is nothing he can do to protect himself. It leaves him with only one way to stop the carnage - and that’s to take his own life….

So,so!

I loved the first book in the series as it was exactly the sort of book I search for and Stephen Leather being a super writer and setting the scenes in and around London it was perfect, so when the second book was announced I bought it without my usual research and sample listening.
It was good, as was the third and fourth books and once again when "Lastnight" was announced I bought it without question because a) it's Stephen Leather b) it's Jack Nightingale and c) it's Paul Thornley.
I'm glad I listened to it as it appears to have been the last book in the series but I wouldn't say I thoroughly enjoyed it, It seemed to be a bit light on substance and detail and appeared padded out and unlike the other books there were long periods of inane chat.
Maybe the author has simply run out of ideas for Jack which is surprising given the breadth of his work or maybe Lastnight was simply a bread and butter book.
Whatever the reason I was disappointed and I'm sad to see Jack go as I'm sure there were many more adventures for him and Jenny.

Top Banana!!!

Where does Lastnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a fan of the JN series i would put this alongside the first 3 - a good paced story with slightly less supernatural elements than the original trilogy.


What other book might you compare Lastnight to, and why?

All others of the JN series.


Have you listened to any of Paul Thornley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Paul Thornley is one of the best in the biz - and i am yet to hear a below A* performance from him. This was approx the 19th book i have listened to with Paul as the narrator, and to be honest when searching audible for something new to listen too, his is the first name i check.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

10 and a half hour book knocked out the park in less than 24 hours - i would say it had me hooked. SL has a natural writing style that makes you want to continue listening, when combined with PT's voice, you have a great combo!


Any additional comments?

Great book - and i cant wait for the next one!
