The Midnight Man | [Paul Doherty]

The Midnight Man

When Brother Anselm and his novice are summoned to the Church of St Michael’s in Candlewick to perform an exorcism, little are they prepared for the horror that waits. The demons and apparitions that plague the church would appear to have been summoned by an infamous sorcerer known as the Midnight Man. But what has he unwittingly unleashed - and why? Is someone using the haunting as the perfect cover for their murderous intent? And is there any link with the sudden disappearances of a number of young women in the area? The answers lie in the past and an unresolved wickedness from many decades before.

    "Canterbury Tales as Horror Stories"

    Paul Doherty has taken Chaucer's Canterbury tales and retold them as horror stories. It is an interesting concept and if you like horror stories with a Medieval Twist you will enjoy these. Like all of Doherty's books this one is based on facts -- for this tale it is John Puddlicott's great robbery of the English Crown Jewel in 1303. The monks of Westminister Abbey were seduced into aiding Pudlicott.

    Since this has been turned into a horror story we find Brother Anslem exorcising Demons and solving the murders of whores -- many over the years has disappeared in the night to satisfy satanic rituals and blood drinkers.

    If you like horror stories you will enjoy this and Andress Wincott is an outstanding narrator.

    Now you are probably asking why I rated the story so low. Well I frankly have never liked Doherty's version of the Canterbury tales. Although I like this author very much, this series does not appeal to me, although many readers love it and find it his best work. I guess I am not into horror stories. But if you like horror stories you will enjoy this book.
