“You’re going to hell, Jack Nightingale”: They are words that ended his police career. Now Jack’s a struggling private detective – and the chilling words come back to haunt him.
Nightingale’s life is turned upside down the day that he inherits a mansion from a man who claims to be his father. It comes with a warning that Nightingale’s soul was sold at birth and a devil will come to claim it on his 33rd birthday – just three weeks away.
Jack doesn’t believe in Hell, but when people close to him start to die horribly, he is led to the inescapable conclusion that real evil may be at work. And that if he doesn’t find a way out, he’ll be damned in hell for eternity.
Superb again from Stephen Leather fast descriptive and chilling couldn’t stop listening absorbing
Very good book . The next James Herbert
what a waste of time/money
I was stupid enough to follow the advice of a internet user who had recommended this as a scary book… oh boy, was I in for a disappointment? The dialogues are long and repetitive. The action is zero. The characters are so flat that any cartoon on tv has more life to them. And, what is it with the obsession with smoking? Do you really need to have the character ask 75 times in the book if he can smoke? The occult parts seem pulled from wikipedia, and are as shallow as the characters. I read it to the end, hoping it would redeem itself somehow…. nope. One to learn...
