B&B only carries 2 of the author's novels. Paying $99 for each 30pg. short story is expensive and I want something more meaty. I enjoyed the story and learned some new background on Midnight, but all of the original stories that lead up to this point aren't available.
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Jack Nightingale is called in to investigate murders that bear sigils, marks of demons as individual as snowflakes. He finds himself chasing 3 teenagers across New York, and calls on help that he would rather not need. This is book 7 of the Jack Nightingale series, I have not read any others. There is an under story running through this, one involving a couple of the characters here, and I missed all that for not reading the other books. BUT while some of the undertones of the book escaped me, I really did enjoy this! The demons are calling on children who are playing a game called Charlie Charlie (no idea if this is a real game, but sounds dangerous!) and who are then upgrading to Ouija boards. THESE are deadly, and cost 6 teenagers their lives, along with a many others who the demons have "fun" with. Its quite graphic in its violence, and we do get some of the demons as well as Jack and ya'll know how much I love that! My other point, besides the under story running from other books, was how it ended. It just did. Like, stopped. Dead. Weird, I thought. Still, a good read, a different to the usual paranormal stuff and I will look to read other books by Leather at a later date. 4 stars **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**
This is the first book I have read by Stephen .. I knew it was part of a series, has supernatural elements and not necessarily my first choice genre but I was offered an ARC so was willing to give it a go based on the gorgeous cover imagery and my love of New York. While I may have benefited from reading the books in order this one managed to grip my attention, keep the pages turning and prompt questions. Fast paced, eerily ‘dark’, full of mystery and I liked the detective, Jack Nightingale. Not suitable for lovers of romance but a fabulous insight into the murky depths of murder. A fascinating book .. don’t read it without the lights on!! I think I may have to go in search of the other books to see what I have been missing. Many thanks to the author, publisher and Kayleigh at BookBear Marketing for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.
Wow this is the first book I read of the Jack Nightingale series and I must say that I was impressed by how well written New York Night by Stephen Leather. Once I got my hands on the eBook I was instantly hooked on it. Granted it took me a little bit longer than excepted to read this book but I didn’t mind it was a really good book. I am giving this book five butterflies for a rating because it sucked me in and it was just an excellent read. I know, I know if it was such a good read why didn’t I finish it sooner is probably the question most of you are probably thinking. The reason for that is because sometimes real life takes over you for a little bit and that is what had indeed happened to me. Jack Nightingale is a British supernatural private investigator that has a friend in the United States that wanted him to handle two cases in New York that had to do with the supernatural business well mostly Hell but yeah same thing. The reason this certain person contacted Jack about these two cases is because he couldn’t think of anyone he trusted better than Jack to keep an eye on the two cases and figure out with what is going on in New York and another state. The evil agents from Hell kept jack on his toes. They twisted him all around New York staying a few steps ahead of him. Lilith was by far my favorite bad. As she kept a low profile, stayed in the shadows and kept the other bad guys in line. She has quite a mouth on her, and I like her snarky attitude. I don’t want to spoil it for the people that haven’t read it since that is something that I don’t like anyone doing no matter who that person is. All I am going to say though is that this is an awesome read. However the previous six books sound just as amazing as this one. If anyone were to ask me about a good supernatural detective book I will most certainly tell them to read a Jack Nightingale book. So, grab that hot chocolate, blanket and this Jack Nightingale mystery and you won't have to go out in the snow. Anyways until the next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness’ Book Trove. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PUBLISHER ASKED ME TO READ AND GIVE AN HONEST REVIEW FOR THIS BOOK!
