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?



I love a good thriller type book that will have you hooked, creeped out with chills, and a touch of eerie stuff going on, and this book was the perfect recipe for that. I enjoyed this book from the beginning and it pulled me in from he first few chapters, as a group of teenage girls go to a known haunted Manor where The Midnight Man is supposed to be. That’s right, these girls knowingly went to a haunted manor with every intention of calling upon the Midnight Man. On Halloween night as well, of all nights. Talk about creepy, scary vibes, right!?

I enjoyed reading this novel and learning about the girls’ experiences on this eerie night in Blackhall Manor, as they call upon The Midnight Man. When one of the girls disappears and doesn’t show up at home, the other girls cannot figure out where she went or what happened to her. Did The Midnight Man get her? Where could she possibly have gone? Full of frights, chills, and edge-of-your-seat thrills, this novel will have you hooked as you flip through the pages.

A perfect read for this time of year, as we are quickly coming up on Halloween in a few weeks. A book I highly recommend that you read.


MY RATING: 4/5 stars
