An Ecclesfield Division Novel
Mick Habergham enjoys the nightshift; patrolling the midnight hours when the world is asleep and police work simple. Sunday night should be quiet but, as his mind wrestles with divorcing Angela, it will prove to be anything but.
From the mad knifeman of Hill Top Hostel to the most inept suicide attempt at the House of Pain, Mick will face all manner of obstacles to a peaceful night. If it isn’t Marak Vargo or Booger Smith, it will be the tragic pensioners of Maple Court or the battle at The Alex Public House.
Midnight ruins so many lives. Tonight one will threaten Mick’s own. If he wants a happy retirement he will first have to walk through fields of heartache and survive the ruins of midnight.
