The Midnight Effect Reviews
The story and relationships needed more development. I wasn’t pulled in enough to feel like I was there.STORY BRIEF:Miles’ wife and daughter died in a car crash three years earlier. Miles quit the police force and runs a gas station. He still grieves and frequently considers suicide. Lily’s car runs into the gas station causing a fire. She and her niece Annie are on the run from a man shooting at them. Miles puts them in his car and takes them to a friend’s home. Lily tells Miles her story. Lily’s sister Cassie worked for Colton and had a child Annie who is now six years old. Annie has psychic abilities. Colton has been using Annie as a test subject at his research facility since her birth. Both Cassie and Annie were kept there against their wishes until they recently escaped. A suspicious car accident happened which killed Cassie, but she was able to make a video tape in the hospital before she died. In the tape she asks Lily to take guardianship of Annie and to keep Annie away from Colton. Miles reluctantly comes back to life enough to help Lily and Annie.REVIEWER’S OPINION (WITH VAGUE POSSIBLE SPOILERS):This felt like an early draft that needed more work. It had an interesting overall plot, but it lacked development. At times it almost felt like I was reading an outline. A number of things were not explained, told, or shown. For example, if the bad guy could find them using her cell phone, why didn’t he find them at an earlier time? He also would have known about the friend they were staying with and could have used that information later. There were a couple of hotel scenes that needed more details, for example how did the bad guy find the victims at the hotels and what was he thinking and doing? I wanted more details about Cassie’s car accident. I wanted more information about the psychic abilities of Annie and others. I wanted to know what Colton was going to show his outside investors regarding the children and his facility. I wanted more details about how Colton knew of Lily’s conversation with a former employee. Miles’ decision to go someplace alone near the end was stupid. The FBI’s interest and actions needed more explanation and details. I wanted more character development especially about Lily and Colton. The Lily and Miles relationship needed more development time. Miles is reluctant to love anyone due to his grief, but all of a sudden things wrap up too quickly into a tidy happy ending.There was a psychic occurrence toward the end which I liked. It surprised me.DATA:Story length: 237 pages. Swearing language: strong, including religious swear words. Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: 1, about 3 pages long.

I finished this book due to one reason - the characters. Thin on plot and one of those too coincidental climaxes that was hard to believe. But I liked the main characters and was willing to see where they ended up :)
This was my first Pamela Fryer book I read. I was interested from the beginning to the end. I enjoyed this book very much. I am very glad with this purchase.
Lots of explosions chasing and evil doctors. Sounds over the top, but actually was more matter of fact than you might think.
