The last case of police negotiator Jack Nightingale’s career ended in the death of nine-year-old Sophie Underwood. Since then he’s saved his own soul from the devil … but now he’s haunted by Sophie’s cries for help. And when a gang banger lying in a hospital bed with no brain activity repeatedly drops Jack’s name, Nightingale realizes Sophie may desperately need him. But why?

Police superintendent Ronald Chalmers is determined to pin the gang banger’s almost-murder on Jack, but he is preoccupied with Sophie and whether or not she’s in eternal torment—or if demons are torturing and deceiving him in order to gain the ultimate prize. With time running out, he’ll have to face down Chalmers and the police, south London gangs, and hell itself in order to find the answer …

A riveting climax to the Nightingale Trilogy, Nightmare is a freight train of action, intensity, and suspense that delivers the force of eternal damnation and the power of the human soul.

    " It was a satisfactory ending to the trilogy. It didn't quite go where I wanted it to go, but a good read nonetheless. "

    " I guessed the ending after reading the first two books, but was still pleased to get the finale and see it through. There were resolutions that could have been really stunning, so in a way this was a bit of a letdown, but overall I found the series wrap-up to be a very good read. The possibilities I thought of would have made the story arc much heavier and perhaps too philosophical. In the first book, Jack Nightingale witnesses the suicide of a young girl. He gets caught up in a series of supernatural events as his life apparently spins out of control. In the second book, these events continue, but just as he thinks he can get back to real life, that little girl returns to haunt him - literally. His final adventure is to see if there is some way to save her, even from beyond the grave. I don't have strong feelings for the protagonist; in the first book, he appeared to be a slacker with a blunted affect. In the second book, he began to develop in a more appealing way, but still wasn't anyone I really cared about. I can't say that he gets better in the third book, but it's a very interesting story and does have a fair amount of suspense. Towards the end, the pace and plot get rather dizzying, but overall I thought it was a fitting conclusion to the series. There is a slight sense of open-endedness, but I'd rather not see the series continue, because the characters didn't hold me. The story arc did, and that is over. "
