Publisher's summary

Uttered by the abusive father of a nine-year-old girl, that phrase ended Jack’s career as a police negotiator and has been haunting him ever since. Now that he is a struggling private detective, those words return with a vengeance when he inherits a mansion - and some terrifying information. Apparently Jack’s soul was sold at birth, and a devil will come to claim it on his 33rd birthday just weeks away. It’s a hard pill to swallow, given that Jack doesn’t believe in hell (heaven, either). But when people close to him start to die, he is forced to consider that real evil may be at work, and if he doesn’t find a way out, he’ll be damned to hell for eternity.Brooding intensity, unrelenting suspense, and surprising wit fill the pages of Nightfall, the first installment of Stephen Leather’s mesmerizing trilogy.

Critic reviews

“Authentic...tersely written...exciting stuff with plenty of heart-palpitating action gingered up by mystery and intrigue...." ( Daily Mail)
“Leather is in the top rank of thriller writers.” (Jack Higgins, New York Times best-selling author)

Not my cuppa tea

i like Leather as a storyteller and he is the excellent storyteller in this book. i did not like the story, more specifically the subject. If you are into magic you will perhaps enjoy it.
