Charlaine Harris’ Midnight, Texas

Are you ready for the new NBC series, “Midnight, Texas”? It’s based on Charlaine Harris’ series about that small town. The first book was Midnight Crossing.

Midnight Crossroad

Here’s the summary of that first book.


From Charlaine Harris, the bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes the first novel in a series that takes place in a darker locale—populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that’s how the locals prefer it…

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).


“Midnight, Texas” premieres on July 24, but you can get a sneak peek at the series and the actors in a recent article by Carrie Bell.

And, of course, you can buy copies of Midnight Crossing and Charlaine Harris’ other books through the Web Store.
