Lastnight : The 5th Jack Nightingale Supernatural Thriller Hardback
A killer is murdering Goths with relish - skinning and butchering them.
The cops aren't getting anywhere so Jack Nightingale's nemesis, Superintendent Chalmers, asks him for help. Nightingale discovers that the murdered Goths had one thing in common: a tattoo connected to the secretive Satanic child-sacrificing cult called the Order Of Nine Angles. As Nightingale closes in on the killers, the tables are turned and he finds himself in the firing line, along with his friends and family.
The Order will stop at nothing to protect their secrets and Nightingale realises that there is nothing he can do to protect himself.
Nor can he run, for the Order has connections across the world.
It leaves him with only one way to stop the carnage - and that's to take his own life ...

Review by adpaton
Cop-turned PI Jack Nightingale seems to attract the supernatural like ghosts to a Ouija board but in this, his fifth outing, it’s the Satanists rather than demonic spirits who are out to get him, to avenge the death of one of their most senior members. The London Metropolitan Police are also giving him a hard time, pressing him to help solve particularly gruesome murders of Goths – one of which features a bloody message on the mirror ‘We’re coming for you, Jack Nightingale’. Soon Jack’s friends and family are being killed [nothing unusual there, it happens in every book] and he formulates a desperate plan which involves magic, mutilation and a startling endgame. The Nightingale series was creepy and exciting, but has run out of steam and become more like Leather’s other, non-occult, books: this story would be the perfect point for Jack to bow out while the mystery and trademark wit remain
