From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale--populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that's how the locals prefer it...
Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It's a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There's a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There's a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there's new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he's found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth...

Review: Midnight Crossroad (Midnight, Texas #1)

User Review  - Dave - Goodreads

This is a fun read with richly developed characters that leaves out a few details to keep you guessing. I want to know more about Manfred, Fiji, Bobo, Lemuel, Olivia, the Rev, Mr. Snuggly, and the rest of the townsfolk of Midnight, Texas I look forward to the rest of the series. Read full review
