Night Shift (#3)

Previous: Day Shift

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels comes the third novel of Midnight, Texas, the town where some secrets will never see the light of day…

At Midnight’s local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves—only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town. Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There’s a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place…


“Bestseller Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse books) brings a real sense of community to the characters she introduced in Midnight Crossroad and Day Shift, deepening the reader’s connection to an irresistible assortment of phone psychics and cowpunching vampires.”

Publishers Weekly

“Harris is truly a gifted storyteller who delivers unique and fascinating characters [...] Great as always!”

RT Book Reviews

“I have never been let down by Harris’s writing abilities, and this book is no different. I’ve loved all the books I’ve read by her, and this trilogy somehow makes an odd, small town really interesting to me [...] I have really enjoyed reading these books and getting to know the characters as their personalities are carefully revealed throughout the course of all three books. I highly recommend this trilogy! 5/5 Stars.”

Shelf Quest

“NIGHT SHIFT is just as powerful, and even more entertaining, than previous books in this series. Despite the deaths and the uncovered secrets, the fear and the violence, there are moments of humor. The stories are intense, dramatic ones, building to remarkable climaxes. And, the unusual residents truly care for each other and the community they created. Charlaine Harris combines intricate plots and remarkable characters in a world she has built in Midnight, Texas. This is slightly creepy and world-building at its best.”

Lesa’s Book Critiques

“It’s fun and entertaining, and feels like you’re visiting old friends who always happen to be up to some new shenanigans p[...] I’ll admit, when it comes to Charlaine Harris, I’m biased. I could read her stuff ALL day. And I would. If I weren’t now officially out of new Charlaine Harris novels to read.”

Mad Book Love

“Things are definitely getting interesting in Midnight, Texas and it’s SO fun to go along for the ride! I’m really loving this series and the whole ensemble cast. Add in danger, romance, some new arrivals, finding out a few of the town’s secrets […] yeah, NIGHT SHIFT upped the game and, damn, it was a blast!”

Herding Cats & Burning Soup

“It feels like a blend of Bewitched, Tarantino’s From Dawn to Dusk and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
