I picked up this book after finding it at my mum's house: she'd won it in a competition. I had no clue what the book was about and I initially found the book quite promising. However, the book quickly descended into farce. All the talk of devils and evil characters was very reminiscent of a Dan Brown book, but without the depth of detail that would give the story an ounce of plausibility. Furthermore, the characters did not seem very well fleshed out and the plot seemed very uncomplicated: the main character did something, discovered a name, then immediately visited that person, etc. without doing anything else other than drink alcohol.

Always interested in another supernatural bad ass. Reminiscent of John Constantine, Richard Stark and the like. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

The first page was really intriguing and locked me into the character of Jack Nightingale, a police negotiator turned private detective. He is a troubled man, troubled by what he has seen through the course of his job though nowadays he earns his living from following unfaithful spouses. ‘Nightfall’ by Stephen Leather is the first of the Jack Nightingale series, described as a ‘supernatural thriller’.
This is a different kind of detective story, which begins when Jack is told he has inherited a mansion from a man who claimed to be Jack’s natural father. That’s not all, his ‘father’ leaves a warning: at Jack’s birth his soul was sold to the devil and a devil will come to claim it on his thirty-third birthday. That’s only three weeks away. So Jack is in a race against time to find out the truth. Was he really adopted? Who is Ainsley Gosling? What is going on? Is he suffering from stress? Hearing things? Imagining things? Is he going to lose his soul? Or is it one big con? When people around him start to die, Jack begins to lose his sense of perspective. ‘You are going to hell, Jack Nightingale’ are the last words he heard at the end of his career as a police negotiator but now he hears those words again, said to him by strangers.
A page-turning thriller with a fresh angle on the crime novel. Not what I was expecting at all, if I’d been offered the chance to read a ‘supernatural thriller’ I would have said ‘no thanks’. But I enjoyed this. Why? Stephen Leather knows how to keep the story moving, he really works the trick of finishing a chapter in a way which makes you read the next even though it is midnight. And I like the main character, Jack Nightingale. For once he is not a tortured depressed detective with relationship issues, and that made this book a refreshing read. The supernatural detective thing is very different, the most similar crime book I’ve read is ‘The Silent Twin’ by Caroline Mitchell where the detective is sensitive to the spiritual vibes of recent murder victims.

Das Buch zieht einen von Anfang an in seinen Bann. Eine super Geschichte, die spannend und fantastisch ist. Man fühlt mit dem Protagonisten mit und man kann sich richtig in die Lage und Situationen hineinversetzen. Absolut empfehlenswert. ( )

Leather has brisk pacing, and each chapter is only as long as it needs to be. Jack Nightingale is not atypical of many other troubled and devil-may-care PIs in the genre, but he is not without charm, and an easy character to follow in his crime-solving ventures. Nightfall is the first in a series of books featuring Jack Nightingale, so though some key questions are answered, others remain to unfold in other books in the series. Nightfall is a quick and enjoyable read for those who like their mystery with a side of the supernatural. ( )
