In a lot of ways – nonsense

Stephen Leather… “Midnight” – this is the sequel to “Nightfall” and is a continuation of the story of “Jack Nightingale”.

The story is directly contiguous and takes place in the same time-frame as Nightfall. Jack finds himself in a search for a half sister he never knew he had. This search involves dealings with the darkest parts of the occult and a seemingly endless succession of improbable mishaps.

This is where the book falls down. The whole thing is so overwhelmingly unbeleiveable that it almost falls into the category of  farce rather than thriller (which it so wants to be). The series is set for a further instalment but I’m not sure I’ll care enough to go out and purchase it.
