Welcome to Midnight . . .
Midnight is the kind of town people go to when they want to escape the world. It’s a place populated by strangers, not friends. And that’s exactly how the locals prefer it.
From Charlaine Harris, the internationally bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse, comes a brand new series filled with murder, mystery and some familiar faces. Every Monday we’ll be lifting the veil a little on the town of Midnight and sharing sneak peeks at the characters, exclusive extracts and giving you a chance to win an early reading copy. Are you ready for Midnight? Because we have the first two chapters for you this week.
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth . . .
