Summary

The truth of what happened that night lies with a secret witness.

Quarter to Midnight is the first thrilling novel in a brand-new series by Sunday Times bestselling author Karen Rose, set in New Orleans.

Rocky Hebert walks into his death at quarter to midnight one New Orleans night.

His son Gabe cannot accept the official verdict of suicide and enlists the help of the Burke Broussard Private Investigation Agency to discover the real cause of death.

PI Molly Sutton knows what it's like to lose a father in tragic circumstances and will go to any lengths to crack the investigation, as she tries to fight off her growing feelings for Gabe.

They soon realise Rocky was working on an investigation of his own; one that threatened to expose the deep corruption going all the way to the top of the police department. And that the key to the puzzle lies with a young witness to a murder that happened years earlier: Xavier Morrow.

Just what did Rocky know? And who might have shut him up?

As they get closer and closer to the truth, they realise that the killer is not going to stop at Rocky. And that Xavier is in very real danger. Someone will go to any lengths to protect what he witnessed that night coming out....

Diary of a wimpy chef

Story is fine but Gabe's character is pathetic. Crying for any excuse, legs going to jelly. Yuk

Enjoyable but nothing new

It’s the same Karen Rose but with different character names. The plot is highly unbelievable and predictable but a good read if you want a good old yarn with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure!

Quarter to Midnight

This is the best book I’ve read this year, keep me reading until well into the night, didn’t want to put it down. Would give it a 10 out of 10 if possible.
Thank you Karen Rose
