Woooo hooooooo it’s another bank holiday Monday and to celebrate I’m welcoming the blog tour for Jack Jordan’s Night by Night.
Massive thanks to Kirsty Doole of Atlantic Books for inviting me on the blog tour and for my copy of Night By Night.
‘If you’re reading this, I’m dead.’
Rejected by her family and plagued by insomnia, Rose Shaw is on the brink . But one dark evening she collides with a man running through the streets, who quickly vanishes. The only sign he ever existed – a journal dropped at Rose’s feet.
She begins to obsessively dedicate her sleepless nights to discovering what happened to Finn Matthews, the mysterious author of the journal. Why was he convinced someone wanted to kill him? And why, in the midst of a string of murders, won’t the police investigate his disappearance?
Rose is determined to uncover the truth. But she has no idea what the truth will cost her…
What Did I Think?
Full disclaimer: I love Jack Jordan’s books! He writes very tense crime thrillers that capture my imagination so I was thrilled to read Night By Night.
This latest offering from Mr Jordan opens with heartbreaking chapters. I’ve had phases of sleep deprivation and it’s a killer but it’s never been proper insomnia but I know a few people who suffer. What happens to Rose is devastating and she never really recovers from it. Her family and friends slowly turn their backs on her which is far from what she needs.
I loved Rose as our narrator. She is so unreliable and damaged, a perfect lead for this cast of dodgy characters. I suspected everyone but had a prime suspect in my sights. Was I right in my suspicions? I’d love to tell you but there are #nospoilers here.
I devoured Night By Night in two sittings over the glorious Easter bank holiday. I was hooked following Rose as she tries to trace Finn Matthews. Jack Jordan pulled a spectacularly brilliant climax to this twisty turny novel right out of the bag. Just as with his other novels, Jack Jordan kept me guessing right to the end and I really did not see that ending coming!!
