The new story in the phenomenal Midnight, Texas series from number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris.
At Midnight's local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves - only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town. Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is? There's a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place. And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose - which just might happen - it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be....

One of my favorite things about Charlene Harris's books is that they tend to be funny when you don't expect it. And though I felt for Fiji's dilemma I could not help but crack up at its description and her reactions.
I've listened to all three of the Midnight Texas books now and this, by far, is my favorite. Charlaine Harris has a wonderful sense of humor and Susan Bennett does a fantastic job in translating this for your audio pleasure.
Without saying too much, Night Shift again focuses on the little town of Midnight and its eclectic and diverse residents. The town is again threatened. As dead bodies begin to pile up, will the residents, both magical and not, survive?
My favorite character, Mr Snuggly the Cat, has more of a presence and I cannot get enough of hearing from him.
If you haven't read or listened to the two previous books, get in it! If you haven't read any of her other series, get on it as well. Fantastic work.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
I'm really sad this series has come to an end. I feel like characters have so much more to give. There is something so comforting about Harris' writing, especially in this trilogy. I've read or listened to every series of hers and Midnight is my favorite. Bennett's narration has been spot on in every book.
I'm so glad I decided to listen to the last 2 books in the series. Susan Bennett does such an amazing job with all the voices. My absolute favorite is Mr. snuggly the cat. I laugh every time he speaks.
Not only are the words brilliant but the voice of the reader is as brilliant and entertaining. She captured each characters personality and sense of humor. So memorable. Fantastic in every way. I love the stories about this enchanting town and its one of a kind characters. I hate to see the series end. A trilogy is not enough. Ms. Feehan's writing captures you completely. What a great world builder.
I found Charlaine's Sookie novels great entertainment and a great way to get through a day of housework or gardening chores. This new series has been just as entertaining. I'm invested in the quirky characters and the bizarre town of Midnight. Added bonus, some friends of Sookie's make appearances. Fun distraction. Worth the credits.
I am an avid fan of audible. I have over 150 titles in my library. Kersey Cole is one of my favs
loved it. the author was great. glad figi and bobo got together. I had hoped it would be quin
Small Town Comraderie
Night Shift is more of a story that goes with the flow, just like the other the books. It's not very fast paced but I don't always need fast, I like to go with the flow (of the story) myself sometimes. What makes this story so interesting for me is how similar the residence of Midnight are like a regular small town of non-magical creatures with how tight nit the folks tend to be. As well as how new comers can cause curiosity and distrust. I didn't expect to welcome any newcomers to Midnight in this last book and if I did I wouldn't have guess who it would be.
I was happy to see how various residents were able to work out their differences and especially Figi and Olivia having some female bonding moments, even if it was over duplicitous planning.
I'm not always a fan of long drawn out series, but I did wonder how would Ms. Harris conclude this series in just three books. I really enjoyed it and a part of me wishes there was at least one other book coming up. Now I'll just have to see how they handle the television series.
