Publishers Weekly calls Midnight “a thrilling read.”
Midnight is a noirish tale set mostly in the iconic New York County Courthouse in lower Manhattan. Even if you never have been to New York, you have likely seen the building’s wide front steps and massive columns from the opening credits of Law & Order. Kevin knows the courthouse well; he has worked there as a law clerk, foreclosure mediator, and administrator for over twenty years, and has used that knowledge to create … Oh never mind, here’s what others have been saying about Midnight:
With relentless suspense, cinematic pacing and a twist around every corner, Kevin Egan creates a brand new genre: legal thriller noir. Clear your calendars and alert Hollywood – this realistic, original and downright terrific page-turner will be the book everyone’s reading!
– Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha and Macavity-winning author
Alfred Hitchcock would have loved Midnight’s twisty, original plot.
