I chose to read Night Shift as a member of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team. I received a copy from the author but this does not alter my review one iota.
Some places don’t appear on any maps. Newgate Wood is one of them.
Luke and Jessica are travelling home after a date and make the wrong choice. They should have taken a taxi, instead they hop aboard the night bus. Big mistake. Surrounded by a cast of colourful characters they soon notice that the bus doesn’t stop again, in fact it only travels faster and faster into a night they no longer recognise.
What waits for them at the end is the hellish nightmare of Newgate Wood.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of Leonard’s books that I have read, and this is no exception. This is another short one, but it needs to be. The story races along leaving you breathless, but I loved the building terror for poor Luke, the atmospheric descriptions and this author’s writing.
Highly recommended for all who enjoy a darker read.
