Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth...

Harris was one of the first authors that got me into reading a few years back and I devoured pretty much everything she wrote but it's been a while since I read hers. I was a little nervous going into Midnight Crossroad but knowing Manfred was in it...I had to jump in. And I liked it quite a bit. It was an interesting mystery about a very odd town, it's people and all of the things they're hiding.
