The last case of police negotiator Jack Nightingale's career ended in the death of nine-year-old Sophie Underwood. Since then, he's saved his own soul from the devil...but now he is haunted by Sophie's cries for help. When the police drag him to the hospital to meet a supposedly comatose gangbanger who keeps saying Jack's name, Nightingale realizes that this is Sophie's desperate attempt to reach him from beyond the grave. Sophie needs Jack, and to save her, he'll have to face the police, south London gangs, and hell itself -- again.

A riveting climax to the Nightingale trilogy, Nightmare is a freight train of action and suspense that pits eternal damnation against the indomitable will of the human soul.

"Authentic...tersely written...exciting stuff with plenty of heart-palpitating action gingered up by mystery and intrigue..." -- Daily Mail

"Leather is in the top rank of thriller writers." -- Jack Higgins, New York Times bestselling author
