Populated by an unusual mix of residents, Midnight, TX, consists of just a few houses and businesses huddled around a single crossroads. That intersection is at the center of the third entry (after Day Shift) of Harris's latest paranormal series. Something is stirring beneath the juncture, and local witch Fiji appears to be the only one who can take care of the problem.
VERDICT Small towns have proved fertile imaginary ground for the author of the "Sookie Stackhouse" books. While psychic Manfred was more of the focus of the first two installments, this time we get a closer look at the town's citizens, including Olivia, whose father seems to be seeking her out, bringing trouble to Midnight.
