The Midnight Man by Caroline Mitchell #bookreview #blogtour @Caroline_writes @emblabooks

On my blog today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the new chilling thriller by Caroline Mitchell, The Midnight Man.

The Midnight Man: The gripping, chilling new thriller from the #1 bestselling author (A Slayton Thriller) by [Caroline Mitchell]


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 take Sarah back to everything she’s been running from, and shake her to the core.

Will she be ready to meet the Midnight Man?


The Midnight Man is an utterly chilling read, perfect for Halloween. Caroline Mitchell opens her new thriller with a shocking opening that made me wonder what on earth was going on. Caroline Mitchell sets the tone of the book really well in the opening pages and it does make for a terrifying opening.

The Midnight Man centres around a dangerous game which gives the book a very supernatural feel as the effects of playing the game take hold. It appears that once you start playing, the game never leaves you. I had to know what was going on here and who was behind what was happening. Who is The Midnight Man who haunts people’s dreams? Even as I was reading, I kept looking up every time I heard a strange noise, and I clutched my kindle a little bit tighter. I’m not kidding, this happened on more than one occasion as I was reading this book.

I thought Detective Sarah Nobel’s story was very intriguing and I liked her resilience and her determination to get to the bottom of the case. I wondered just how much this case would affect her, particularly as we begin to learn more about her childhood. Caroline Mitchell keeps the tension turning up a notch as strange things start happening her.

I was utterly gripped as Caroline Mitchell delved into the heart of the mystery and as Sarah Nobel confronts her worst fears. The tension is spot on, and everything unravels in a very clever way as Caroline Mitchell reveals the truth.

I loved The Midnight Man. The characters come to life on the page, and I can’t wait to see where Caroline Mitchell takes this new series next. If you are looking for a thriller perfect for the spooky season, then look no further than this book. I highly recommend it.
