Everything begins at Midnight

From Charlaine Harris, the author of four consecutive #1 Sunday Times bestsellers, comes the moment that fans have been waiting for: the very first novel of aunforgettable new series.

Charlaine Harris is the globally admired author of amongst others, the hugely successful SOOKIE STACKHOUSE novels, made into HBOs Golden Globe award winning seriesTRUEBLOOD. Charlaine Harris is the Queen of Dark Fantasy and a celebrated Crime Novelist.

Her brand new stand-alone novel, MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD, is an edge-of-your-seat page-turner and a perfect example of what Charlaine Harris does best: chilling small town murder mysteries with a jaw-dropping twist.

The publication of this all-new series, especially one with a foot firmly in the crime genre, is a world-wide publishing event and guaranteed to attract significant attention across both the fantasy and mystery fiction blogosphere.

Charlaine Harris said: “I was very excited about the prospect open to me: the thrill of doing something new and different, the creation of another world. I literally didn’t know where to start. It was like being in a great bakery where there are no calories. But gradually a place started to form in my mind, a desolate and isolated place, and I began to populate that little town”

Welcome to Midnight, Texas: a dried-up Western Town. Located at the crossroad of Witch Light and Davy Road, thelimited cast of full time residents includes...

MANFRED: new in town, phone and internet psychic. Manfred Bernardo is a man with secrets. Looking for a place to carry out his work in private, Midnight seems like the perfect respite from the modern world. Afterall, this is a town where no one asks after your past.

FIJI: Lovable Fiji runs a new age magic store and is just a bit hopeless. Her hair is impossible to tame, her clothes never seem to create quite the outfit she meant to wear and her love life is so quiet you can hear the crickets chirping. But Fiji had s secret of her own. One that can literally freeze people in place.

BOBO: Bobo runs Midnight Pawn, an unlikely hangout for the residents of Midnight. By day customers come in to pawn a TV, necklace or gun. But at night, another type of customer visits the pawn shop

OLIVIA: No one is quite sure what Olivia does, exactly. And that’s probably for the best.

Welcome to Midnight
