Beneath Midnight's crossroads something is waking

Night Shift: A Novel of Midnight Texas By Charlaine Harris
Berkley Publishing Group Sci Fi & Fantasy Pub Date: May 3, 2016
The third of Harris's Midnight novels, Night Shift, is possibly the best one yet.
Midnight is a town that takes care of its own. The residents prefer to keep to themselves, keeping their secrets hidden from prying eyes. Only a handful are human.
Something is trying to awaken beneath the crossroads. People are inexplicably coming to Midnight, only to commit suicide at the crossroads. Death brings unwanted attention, and all of the residents feel trouble coming. Lemeul is working on the translation of a text that may hold the key to preventing a disaster of great magnitude.
It is in Night Shift that Fiji finally comes into her own as a witch, gaining confidence in her magic and her womanhood. Although all of the characters are important, Fiji's role in Night Shift is essential.
Be prepared for quite a few revelations. Whether you simply enjoy urban fantasy or are a fan of Charlaine Harris, Night Shift is a novel that is not to be missed.

At Midnight's local pawnshop, weapons are flying off the shelves—only to be used in sudden and dramatic suicides right at the main crossroads in town.
Who better to figure out why blood is being spilled than the vampire Lemuel, who, while translating mysterious texts, discovers what makes Midnight the town it is. There's a reason why witches and werewolves, killers and psychics, have been drawn to this place.
And now they must come together to stop the bloodshed in the heart of Midnight. For if all hell breaks loose—which just might happen—it will put the secretive town on the map, where no one wants it to be...
