Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

'Written with panache, and a fine ear for dialogue, Leather manages the collision between the real and the occult with exceptional skill, adding a superb time-shift twist at the end'. -- Daily Mail 'This extraordinary thriller, like the others in this series, is very reminiscent of the novels of Dennis Wheatley ... [the] completely unpredictable ending of this outstanding story was so incredibly imaginative, that I cannot wait to see how the next book in this series, by this very versatile and prolific author will be tackled.' -- www.eurocrime.co.uk 'A disturbing, blood-chilling read from a writer at the top of his game' **** -- Sunday Express on MIDNIGHT 'Another great thriller from Stephen Leather but this time with a devilish twist!' -- James Herbert on NIGHTFALL 'A wicked read' -- Anthony Horowitz on NIGHTFALL 'Suffused with mysterious pentagrams, not to mention a creeping sense of evil, I suspect that down-to-earth Nightingale is a man we'll hear more of' -- Daily Mail on NIGHTFALL 'Dark and exhilarating, you'd better keep the lights on when you're reading it' -- Candis on NIGHTFALL 'The third book in a very interesting and engaging series. Stephen Leather has written many thrillers, all with that sense of engagement you get from writers who know what they are doing. A couple of them have been adapted for BBC-TV productions and this supernatural series reads like it could easily be on our screens in the near future. Read it now and beat the rush. Demonically good.' -- The Courier Mail 'If you love thrillers then this comes from one of the best, so good is the writing I felt quite intimidated about writing anything here, but I can without any reservation recommend not only NIGHTMARE but everything Stephen Leather has written - yes, he is that good.' -- Gothic Reign

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The words of an evil Devil, You might say...
And even if You never were some great believer in the supernatural, the life after death, paradise and hell, Good and Bad, You have to admit that EVIL exists.
From the very beginning and until the Hell might freeze - EVIL, clear and simple evil, had, has and will have forever the greatest influence on the fate of humanity.
In some beliefs of Mankind Evil tempted Eva to seduce Adam. The result? They both were kicked out of Paradise.
Evil made brother kill his own brother.
Evil caused the Deluge, the Great Flood.
And on and on it goes, the whole story of Humanity is filled with abuse, betrayal, violent deaths, wars, and is always getting worse...

So, d'accord, Evil HAS to exist, and if it's only to jump in, when "normal" human beings need to cover their own weaknesses and sins.

And in this thriller with super-natural touch, it is pure Evil our hero Jack Nightingale has to deal with.
And dealing was his profession, before everything went down the river.
A negotiator he was, trying to talk people out of their allegedly wrong actions.
But at his very last day on the job, before he found himself a new one as Private Investigator, all actions that could go wrong went wrong...

And here we find him, in the third book Nightmare aka Jack Nightingale 3 of his very own trilogy, after Nightfall and Midnight, dealing - as always - with his very private demons.

Nachdem Teil 2 ein mehr oder weniger lahmer Aufguss des ersten Teils war, ist der 3. Teil wieder sehr gut geworden und ich habe beim Lesen sehr viel Spaß gehabt. Die Personen sind einem mittlerweile sehr gut bekannt und man freut sich richtig, wenn man wieder etwas aus der Hölle hört :)

I was fortunate in being given an advanced digital copy of Nightmare by Stephan Leather to preview. I found it intriguing throughout which made it a page turner. It starts off with action straight away and Stephen Leather's writing style of capturing very natural interactions makes for a very easy read. There are several unexpected twists towards the end that makes this a very gripping story. Although it is the third novel in the series it does very much stand alone and previous exploits are woven into the storyline very well.

Extraordinarily thought provoking 30. Dezember 2011
Von Midnight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Jack Nightingale is single, 33 years old and haunted by memories of the death of Sophie Underwood, a nine year old girl he watched throw herself from a balcony two years before. He is an ex cop who now works as a private detective but people close to him seem to have a nasty habit of either killing themselves or being killed.

Superintendent Ronald Chalmers used to work with Jack and seems to want to have him in the frame for any and all crimes imaginable including the shooting of a Brixton gangster. Chalmers' sidekick, Inspector Dan Evans, is more supportive of Jack although Dan lives in a world where crimes are solved by examining physical evidence and questioning suspects - unlike Jack who is drawn into the world of the supernatural.

Stephen Leather is truly a master at skillfully weaving an excellent tale; I find Jack Nightingale to be a very credible and likeable character whose exploits I enjoy following. The author's talent at producing fully rounded central characters is second to none - I rapidly became so engrossed in the story I was even standing reading while trying to cook, so much was my reluctance to put the book down!

I am not generally a great lover of occult type books but feel this series provides more of a compelling thriller type read and as I live in a house that is 200 years old, it certainly came across to me as being quite plausible and extraordinarily thought provoking.

I sincerely hope there will be more books in this series, as I would love to see where the author takes the central characters to now. So far this is the third full length book but there is also a short story to whet your appetite.

Try it with an open mind and I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Dear Jack, You Let Me Die, Now Please Rescue Me! Signed, Sophie 11. Februar 2013
Von Michael Lichter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In Nightfall (Nightingale: Book One), private detective Jack Nightingale had to save his own soul from the devil. In Midnight, Jack's mission was to save the soul of the half-sister he never knew he had. After those two adventures, Jack may have earned a rest, but he isn't getting any.

Now, an abused 9-year-old girl is begging for his help. The girl, Sophie Underwood, just happens to be dead, and she only speaks to him though random people he meets: the owner of his favorite Chinese restaurant, a brain-dead drug dealer, passersby on the sidewalk, and lots of others. And Sophie isn't just any dead 9-year-old child; it was Jack's failure to prevent her suicide and the subsequent death of her father while in Jack's care that led to the end of Jack's career as a police negotiator.

"Nightmare" is much like the earlier books in the series. Bad things happen to Jack and he flounders around trying to figure out who's out to get him and why. He smokes too much, drinks too much, complains too much, manipulates old colleagues into risking their jobs for his sake, and takes his long-suffering assistant Jenny completely for granted. He also tangles with devils, demons, big bad Satanists, nice amateur Satanists, evil books, construction contractors, and disembodied spirits. As in the earlier books, readers are left uncertain whether Jack is a lovable screw-up with just the right mix of recklessness, bravado, and heart or a self-absorbed jerk, oblivious to how badly his reckless behavior is hurting the people around him. When Jack and Jenny exchange witty repartee over Jack's horribly unreliable MGB, he seems like a sweet slacker trying to make the best of a bad situation; when he repeatedly encourages his diabetic buddy to drink and smoke, he's the "devil" the buddy accuses him of being.

Where "Nightmare" departs from precedent is in the body count and in the sense of impending doom. In the first two books, and especially in "Nightfall," half the people Jack tried to get information from killed themselves before they could tell him anything. Thankfully, that's not the case in "Nightmare"; the fatality rate is still high, but Jack is no longer a harbinger of death. On the other hand, Jack's mission to save Sophie is less viscerally urgent than his need to save himself in the first book and his sister in the second. Jack's indecisive foot dragging over Sophie -- it takes him forever to get in contact with someone who might be able to help -- and a number of subplots, including a murder investigation that is only tangentially related to Jack's problems, do little to help maintain the tension.

By the book's final chapters, however, events begin accelerating towards what seems certain to be a colossal, catastrophic train wreck. Without giving any details away, I'd say that Leather wraps up the series (sort of -- see below) with a bang that is every bit as big and bad as we're led to expect ... And yet, it is nowhere near as extreme -- or as conclusive -- as it first seems. It's tough not to feel both satisfied and cheated at the same time.

Bottom line: The third volume in the Nightingale series is less bloody and less focused than the first two books, but it is cut from the same cloth, with all of the good and bad things that implies. Fans of this slightly unhinged horror series should not hesitate to pick up a copy.

P.S. Stephen Leather recently announced online that although he originally intended to write only three books in this series, he has accepted a contract to write two more and is open to keeping the series going beyond that.

Awesome!!! 4. Januar 2013
Von Vicki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was my first venture into Stephen Leather's world. I began the trilogy by checking out Nightfall (Book #1) from the Kindle Lending Library, just to see what it was like. Free so couldn't very well go wrong except that I HATE to read bad books, I don't care how FREE they are. I was so impressed with Jack Nightingale, I then bought Midnight and Nightmare. I rarely give a 5 star rating to a book, not unless it knocks me over and this series did. And it isn't even my genre! I'm still sitting here with my mouth hanging open at the final twist. I'll be checking into other books by Mr. Leather in the very near future.

To Hell and Back 20. April 2012
Von Amanda Richards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the third installment of the Jack Nightingale series, and once again, our hero is jumping head first into situations he knows absolutely nothing about. I believe that this should not be read without reading the first two, as you need to know how Nightingale's thought processes (or lack thereof) work, and what drives him to pursue the supernatural.

In the first book, he has to save his own soul, in the second, his sister's, and now it's a whole new ballgame when the ghost of a little girl keeps begging him for help. In the first book, he fails to stop the girl from jumping/falling to her death in a successful suicide attempt, a failure which has haunted him from that point onwards.

The usual characters (dead, living and otherwise) are back in book three, which sees Nightingale negotiating with a powerful secret organization and some even more powerful supernatural beings, while facing his own personal demons and trying to stay out of prison courtesy of the police force.

At a first, second or third glance, Nightingale seems to be completely mad, but by the end you realize that he's as crazy as a fox.
