Charlaine Harris, the author of the Sookie Stackhouse books that hit TV show True Blood was based on, releases her new book Day Shift tomorrow.
To celebrate the release we’ve got our hands on an exclusive clip from the audio book for you to listen to. Day Shift is the second instalment in Harris’ new series Mightnight, Texas which began last year with Midnight Crossroad.
Welcome to Midnight, Texas. With empty shops, boarded up windows and just a single traffic light, it’s a sleepy town that’s easy to miss, and the residents love it that way. The idyllic, unnerving lull comes crashing to an end when the town’s abandoned old hotel is bought by a new owner with grand plans to reinvigorate the entire town. It’s just what the town of Midnight needs, but not all the residents are happy with the news.
But little do the residents know that a storm of people is descending on Midnight. When the town’s newest resident becomes embroiled in a deadly investigation, an army of police, lawyers and journalists all arrive, and suddenly the hotel and its new owner are the least of the town’s worries.
Day Shift is a standalone story set in the same town as Midnight Crossroad. It is released tomorrow as a hardback, eBook and audiobook by Gollancz.
