The Midnight Man Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From number one best-selling author Caroline Mitchell comes the first chilling Slayton thriller for fans of C. J. Tudor and Stephen King.
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 22 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 plot focuses on several different elements- the bone chilling, murderous past of Blackhall Manor and its subsequent abandonment that leads to decades of teens whispering about the legend of The Midnight Man., and the present day game that turns sour with the arrival of the legendary Midnight Man.
"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..."
In present day, on Halloween night in the small town of Slayton, five girls go to Blackhall Manor to play the legendary Midnight Game. They write their names on paper and soak it in blood their own blood. At exactly midnight they knock on the door twenty-two times - to invite the Midnight Man in. The game quickly descends into horror as only 4 make it home. They are afraid to speak of their part lest the Midnight Man tracks them down and drags them to hell.
Detective Sarah Noble is placed on the case , but she shares a dark history with the Manor and does not want to revisit its horrors. She has just recently returned to the force after a recent trauma, so she is already unsettled. Her return to the force is made more difficult by the school yard antics of some of her co-workers.
One of my favourite chilling elements is the character of Elliot, a young boy, who suffers traumatising and frightening night terrors, which reflect true events. The paranormal aspect is really interesting. I love his ability to see a darkness over Slayton Town. This bodes well for future novels in the series! I hope both Sarah and Elliot make a return.
Overall, a superbly spooky crime thriller perfect for Autumn and Halloween. #TheMidnightMan #CarolineMitchell #Embla
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.
What a spine chilling rhyme to kick things off closely followed by an equally sinster opening chapter. You know what? These were two back to back signs I was in for a real treat!!
So the story centres round a creepy empty house, a group of girls who play a creepy game and a detective trying to stay in the shadows. How are these three things tied together I hear you cry…. By the faceless Midnight Man.
I really liked Sarah. She’s a tenacious woman who has had the real rough end of life’s presents. She’s been dealt a crappy hand from a young age and now she is trying to find this enigmatic killer. Will she find him before he kills again or worse still catches up with her?!
This is a dark and twisted read just as I have come to expect from Mitchell but there is a whole lot more sinsterness to The Midnight Man. Mitchell mixed her crime fiction with the supernatural in her Jennifer Knight books but this is a step above that. The Midnight Man seems to be everywhere and yet elusive to capture.
The Midnight Man kept me covered in goosebumps throughout. I was chilled to the bone from the off by Mitchell’s latest novel and I loved it!! If you want a creepy read for this creepy month, you can’t go wrong with The Midnight Man. The question is, dare you read it by candlelight??
