Now adapted for television in SyFy UK’s Midnight, Texas series – welcome to Charlaine Harris’s bestselling paranormal mystery series about a small town where only outsiders fit in . . .
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels – ‘the Mark Twain of things that live under your bed’ – comes a new novel of Midnight, Texas, the town where some secrets will never see the light of day . . .
Welcome to the most intriguing mystery you’ll read this year.
Welcome to Midnight, Texas.
At Midnight’s local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves-only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town.
Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There’s a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place.
And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose – which just might happen – it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be . . .
A gently paced mystery with a supernatural slant, populated by endearing, varied and well-constructed characters....Definitely recommend
I can see many nights being lost to the wonder of Midnight. 4 /5
A slow burning novel which successfully juggles setting the scene for an ongoing series with a self-contained story.
Fans might be sad to say good-bye to Sookie, but they'll be so intrigued by the denizens of Midnight they won't have time to mourn.
A Knife and a Quill
Midnight Crossroad is another compelling book by Charlaine Harris. I love her storytelling style and the wonderful characters she creates
Following the Nerd
I was blown away by Midnight Crossroad. It's a wholly immersive, stunningly written adventure that I couldn't put down. The characters are spot on and unforgettable, the plot is exciting - the only negative thing is that I have to (very impatiently) wait for book two!!!

The inclusion of a mystery that starts simply and then winds out of control so that no one can be trusted makes this is a blast to read. Everyone is your friend in Midnight, but you don't know everything about anyone. I can't wait for Midnight to come again. Overall grade: A
If you have read anything by Charlaine Harris I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. If you haven't read anything by Charlaine Harris, then Midnight Crossroad might be the book to get you started.
Fantasy Book Review
This gentle mystery shows an author confident in her writing and perhaps heralds the arrival of the best stage of her work - one where she writes primarily because of the sheer love for writing. An excellent read.

The characters are fascinating, the world she created is very intriguing and there is SO MUCH mystery ... so much, in fast, that you just HAVE to relocate from Bon Temps to Midnight, Texas.
