Publisher's Summary

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?

Had hoped ...

Had hoped the author would have done something about the repetitive "said (pause) nightingale" but alas no. Story good but more repetitive and predictable than the first.

Why didn't Leather just extend the first book?

What did you like best about Midnight? What did you like least?

Paul Thornley's performance is probably the most redeeming aspect of this audiobook. The book just feels like the author wanted to leave the previous book on a cliffhanger to ensure that readers would be demanding the next book in the series but he didn't really have another storyline and instead just regurgitated the first book again, changing a few details here and there


What could Stephen Leather have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I found this book very frustrating anyway, the fact that you can almost predict what is going to happen because its just a rehash of the first, but one of the most annoying facts is that regardless what happens none of the characters actually learn anything, instead keep having the same debates, falling for same tricks and and it leaves you just banging your head in frustration, and as for Nightingales complete incomprehension of the UK smoking laws, if I was reading the book one more "Can I smoke in here?" and I would have probably thrown it!


What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Without Thornley's strong voice acting and captive narration I probably wouldn't have stuck with the book, the story has bored me but at least the voice acting is captivating


Any additional comments?

A great shame, I will probably leave the series here but I had a lot of hope for it when listening to the first book, having seen a couple of reviews for the third that say that it is more of the same I will probably just call it a day after Midnight
