Teenagers are being possessed and turning into sadistic murderers. Priests can’t help, nor can psychiatrists. So who is behind the demonic possessions? Jack Nightingale is called in to investigate, and finds his own soul is on the line.

New York Night is the seventh novel in the Jack Nightingale supernatural detective series.

Praise for Stephen Leather’s Jack Nightingale series:

‘Another great thriller from Stephen Leather but this time with a devilish twist!’ James Herbert

‘Written with panache, and a fine ear for dialogue, Leather manages the collision between the real and the occult with exceptional skill’ Daily Mail

‘A stunning masterclass in darkness from a ferocious talent who excels in putting the devil in the details’ Daily Record

review

New York is the sixth book on the Nightingale series. Nevertheless, each book in the series can be read as a standalone. Though I would recommend to start with the first book not only because the series rocks but because you might get a little bit confused about certain situations or the appearance or disappearance of certain characters. 
In New Your Night, we get so see again our dear ex-police Jack Nightingale that due to certain situation had to leave his life and friends and UK and move to USA to be the minion of Wainwright, who is pretty much a paranormal fanatic that seems to have ulterior motives for keep Jack close. This time our private investigator is investigating a series of strange murders, in which the victim has a strange sigil, a demonic seal used to summon demons. The fact that Wainwright couldn’t recognize a couple of those symbols resulted on him pushing Nightingale into the battlefield with nothing much than the suspicion of a connection. Nevertheless, that man seems to truly be into something. Teenagers have always been difficult but being possessed by demon is NOT part of adolescence. Teens are running through the streets commenting seducing and cheating their preys into a trap, using them as sacrifice to summon a power far stronger than they will be able to handle. The police is ignorant of this paranormal activity in their city and, let’s face it, there is no way they would believe it even if Nightingale told. Therefore, our detective needs to work quickly before Hell breaks loose, literally.
I have to admit I quite enjoy peculiar behavior of Nightingale. His fear of elevators, his desperation when he gets mistaken for an Australian, and the way he conducts himself when talking to a demon made me chuckle and like him even more. I find his way to conduct himself quite amusing. Another character that totally grab my attention is our number one princess of Hell, Proserpine. I love how she acts like Nightingale is a bother but, in the end, helps him. Even when she doesn’t admit it, I truly believe she find him amusing. In fact, there was something by the very end of the book that made me suspect that there might be a little bit more than amusement in her interest towards Jack. Nevertheless, it would be your task to find that on your own. It wouldn’t be fair any other way. 
I have to say that demons escaping Hell is nothing new. However, I love how the author managed to twist the story and wrap in with a mystery veil in such a way that it grabbed your attention from the very first page. In the end, you will find yourself not wanting to put to book down until you find out who is the mastermind behind the sadistic murders of teens in New York. Why would a Princess of Hell, an archivist and a second-order demon want to leave Hell at the same time all of a sudden? How are the targets being chosen? Why is the mastermind planning? Is releasing the demons from Hell his/her true purpose or…is there something more?
