This was not as good as the previous books in the series. I thought it was to easy for him to defeat the demons and there wasn't enough details. it was still good but not nearly as good as the first few books
"Nightingale is back"
If you have enjoyed the series you must get New York night it does not disappoint.
"Classic Stephen Leather"
Another thrilling Jack Nightingale thriller, an excellent tale well written and narrated by Paul.
Wish Jack would return to the UK signalling the return of his sidekick Jenny.
"Good but could be better"
Bring back Jenny.
It's like Batman without Robin. It's just not the same.
I enjoyed it. But not has much as the earlier books.
"loved it .... hurry up and do another one please"
Can't get enough of this series of books highly recommend good storyline as always
"Another great read from Stephen Leather"
I have been a fan of the Jack Nightingale series from the first, Midnight, through to New York night.
I don't know what possessed Stephen to move his character to the USA yet keep his British name and history. I'd have thought that a simple check would bring American cops knocking on his door but no one seems to have done so, yet.
I miss Jenny his faithful secretary and confidant who was exceptionally wealthy and worked because she loved him. Moving to remove her from the danger Jack had put her in was a natural progression but he couldn't then use his real identity especially with the way he made that move.
However, I am still happy that Jack is still fighting the good fight in his agnostic way.
Looking forward to the next instalment.
"Another great Jack Nightingale tale"
I just eat these up, it's just a shame I found them so early on as it means I have to wait. lucky those that have just discovered Jack. I hope he can return somehow to London in the future.
"Way too much graphic violence"
I had to skip large parts of this. I usually love Stephen Leather but this book and the previous one I found too violent.
The Nightingale series is getting a bit repetitive and predictable..... Could do with Joshua getting more involved practically.
"Nightingale is back"
Stephen Leather brings his characters not just to life but brings you in as if you are living their lives. Like with the excellent Spider Shepard series. Jack Nightingale has grown his character and you live with him through each action thought adventure and fear. Written cleverly as always keeping you second guessing the other characters come into vivid focus on a dark exciting journey to a mind bending climax. Why no one has picked both Spider Shepard series and Jack Nightingale series for TV or film is beyond me. 10 of each on Sky 1 would be a great start. Steve L
After the completely daft decision by Stephen Leather's UK publishers not to continue with the Jack Nightingale series, the author has switched the action to the USA and self-published, so fans of Jack can continue to enjoy his unique approach to murder and demons.
To be fair, the story is not as complex as some of the others in the series but well told and wonderfully narrated by Paul Thornley. Mr Thornley seems to be Marmite as a narrator; as you can tell I enjoy his narration very much. His New York accent is terrific and as ever, he has Jack well defined. So in summary, good but not great, enjoyable but not demanding. Just the thing for a few hours in a motorway jam.
