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

Read with full. Stops in all the. Wrong places.

Would you try another book written by Stephen Leather or narrated by Paul Thornley?

I enjoyed the story but the listening experience was marred by weird placing of verbal full stops, especially after speech.

This story is going to hell Stephen Leather

This is a fairly pedestrian story that rehashes the first book but in a much more tedious way. I would firmly suggest avoiding this book.

Disappointing

Any additional comments?

I loved the first book in this series and although the end to book one was a little poor I still had high hopes for this book. But sadly the author seems to have taken all that was wrong with the ending of book one and come up with this!
Demons who seem quite nice and very easy to fool along with a predictable story-line mean I will not be listing to any more in this series.

Enjoyable at first

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

The book itself was good to begin with, the last book left on a cliffhanger which made you want to find out what happened next.
As the book developed the the narrator developed an extremely upsetting habit of saying "he said, ?? said, said ?? " in an almost monotone, electronic way as though it had been overlaid after the book's narration had been completed. This became more irritating as the book went on and destroyed the enjoyment of the storyline

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The detail of the research comes through and I love the main characters
The number of times the author exalts in the deep drags of cigarettes and blowing the smoke up to sky

Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Thornley’s performances?

The rest of his narration was good but I would listen to a preview before purchasing another of his performances

Did Midnight inspire you to do anything?

Like what, check my birth certificate and look for a pentagram ?

This is part 2 of a duo

This book really doesnt stand on its own. You need to first read Nightfall: A Jack Nightingale Supernatural Thriller if you want to make much sense of the plot. Its an OK story that bowls along, but there are some plot lines that lead nowhere like the 'spell' Jack goes though to prevent himself losing his driving licence. A romp, but I think Stephen Leather has written better books.

Admirable sequel

Didn't keep me quite as gripped as the first in the series but still thoroughly enjoyed this. Well narrated once again. You really need to have read the first to appreciate this though. I will certainly be buying the rest in the series.

The ' Dark Side ' of Midnight

I really enjoyed this book, it was a pretty good detective story with a good dose of the Supernatural thrown in ( even though it was a bit OTT). The narrator helped to pull it off beautifully. A good listen,looking forward to Book 3.

Great listen 👂🏼👍🏼

A great listen, not sure if I was going to like the Jack Nightingale books with being about the supernatural and satanic but how wrong I was.
Couldn’t stop listening, bring on the next book....😉👍🏼
