Day Shift (#2)

Previous: Midnight Crossroad | Next: Night Shift

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels returns to the one-stoplight town of Midnight, Texas, a place where no one is quite what they seem…

There is no such thing as bad publicity, except in Midnight, where the residents like to keep to themselves. When psychic Manfred Bernardo finds himself embroiled in a scandal and hounded by the press after one of his regular clients dies during a reading, he turns to enigmatic, beautiful, and dangerous Olivia Charity for help. Somehow he knows that the mysterious Olivia can get things back to normal. As normal as things get in Midnight…


“A fun and engaging paranormal mystery romp.”

San Francisco Review of Books

“Sookie Stackhouse is nowhere to be found in the pages of Charlaine Harris’ DAY SHIFT but everything that made [True Blood] ground-breaking remains intact and then some […] DAY SHIFT is wondrously gothic, exchanging a clever, dark elegance for Sookie’s more blood-soaked adventures. A tour de force of both form and function.”

Providence Journal

“Outsiders swarm the sleepy streets of Midnight, Tex., as supernatural superstar Harris returns with another practiced out-of-the-ordinary mystery […] Harris continues to open up her setting, layering in more secrets as well as revealing some answers, and, in a nod to her fans, dropping the S-bomb to link this series with her famous Southern Vampire Mysteries series.”

Publishers Weekly

“The reigning master of ‘rural fantasy’ returns to the tiny village of Midnight, Texas [...] with a new story of magic and mystery [...] Harris’s customary warmth and humor shines throughout.”
