Today’s team review is from Georgia, she blogs here https://www.georgiarosebooks.com
Georgia has been reading Night Service by John F. Leonard
Some places don’t appear on any maps. Newgate Wood is one of them.
Luke and Jessica are travelling home after a date and make the wrong choice. They should have taken a taxi, instead they hop aboard the night bus. Big mistake. Surrounded by a cast of colourful characters they soon notice that the bus doesn’t stop again, in fact it only travels faster and faster into a night they no longer recognise.
What waits for them at the end is the hellish nightmare of Newgate Wood.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of Leonard’s books that I have read, and this is no exception. This is another short one, but it needs to be. The story races along leaving you breathless, but I loved the building terror for poor Luke, the atmospheric descriptions and this author’s writing.
Highly recommended for all who enjoy a darker read.
It’s been a great night, but it’s getting late. You need to make tracks and cash isn’t king.
No worries… all aboard the Night Service. It could be the last bus you ever catch.
Every journey is a journey into the unknown, but this trip is an eye-opener, unlike anything that Luke and Jessica have ever experienced. They’re going to learn a few important lessons. Being young and in love doesn’t grant immunity from the everyday awful… or the less ordinary evil that lurks in the shadows.
There’s no inoculation from the horror of the world – it’s real and it’s waiting to touch you.
