Now her cries for help are louder than ever. Is she trapped in eternal torment? Can Nightingale put things right? Or are the forces of darkness torturing and deceiving him in order to gain the ultimate prize - his soul? Nightingale will have to face down the powers of the police, south London gangs and Hell itself to find out. And evil is closer than he thinks . . .

In the final of the Jack Nightingale trilogy (Nightfall, Midnight) Jack is faced with stakes of the highest order. This third installment doesn't let up and is at least as enjoyable as the first two.
