The Midnight Man: The gripping, chilling new thriller from the #1 bestselling author (A Slayton Thriller) by [Caroline Mitchell]


If you open your door to the Midnight Man, hide with a candle wherever you can. Try not to scream as he draws near, because one of you won’t be leaving here…

On Halloween night in Slayton, five girls go to Blackhall Manor to play the Midnight Game. They write their names on a piece of paper and prick their fingers to soak it in blood. At exactly midnight they knock on the door twenty-two times – they have invited the Midnight Man in.

It was supposed to be a game, but only four girls come home.

Detective Sarah Noble has just returned to the force, and no one knows more about Blackhall Manor than her. It’s a case that will take Sarah back to everything she’s been running from, and shake her to the core.

Will she be ready to meet the Midnight Man?


The Midnight Man


It was 1994, and Sarah Noble and her family lived at Blackhall Manor with her grandma and granddad. That all sounds nice, but one night everything went wrong. It ended with murder and suicide. Blackhall Manor remains empty even all these years later. But a game has begun if you dare to play. Five girls go into the house on Halloween night, but not all of them come out. Would you summon The Midnight Man?

This is a cracking story from author Caroline Mitchell, who seems to have dangled her toes back into the supernatural elements like she used to. The story is a mix of the Supernatural, suspense and Police procedural, and it’s done with style. The opening scene will rattle your insides because everything is intensified by the dark, the confinement of a wardrobe, and only hearing what is happening. What makes it more horrific is this story revolves around teenagers. It is an instant low blood pressure cure.

Once the past has been woken up, it wants what it didn’t finish all those years ago. The story is unsettling, to say the least, with that feel of Stephen King’s ‘It’ and saying Candy Man three times in a mirror. I admit to checking the wardrobes when I go to bed, not to see if anyone is in them but to make sure I could get in if needed!

One of my favourite characters was Elliot, a young boy that can see far more than most people can, he just doesn’t know how to read it yet. I hope to see much more of him in the future as this is the first book in a new series. So there may be even more bumps in the night stuff to come. I love the town name too. Slayton.

I wish to thank the publisher and Net Galley for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
