Reading Challenge Category: Book from Amazon Kindle Unlimited

Official Blurb:

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 shake Sarah to the core.
Will she be ready to meet the Midnight Man?

My Thoughts:

This is probably the most gripping thriller I have read for quite some time. I was hooked right from the beginning, and my heart was in my mouth for most of the book.
A lot is going on in this book; there is the mystery surrounding what happened 25 years ago. There are the recent disappearances of young girls, and there are the secrets Sarah is harbouring about her husband. There is also an almost supernatural element with everything Elliott is going through. I am hoping his gifts are explored a little more in the next in the series.
I read this book so fast as I wanted to know everything that would happen, and I wasn’t disappointed as everything came to light. Although, a few of the reveals did feel a bit rushed, and I had to reread sections over to really grasp everything the author was trying to tell us.
Overall, a fantastic read and I can’t wait for the next in the series.
