"James Ellroy meets David Lynch in this addictive mix of noir and supernatural horror" from the acclaimed author of Zaneville and Enigmatic Pilot (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Det. Birch Ritter is a man on the edge—of himself. His past is filled with secrets, guilt, and ghosts. And his latest case is about to lead him to Genevieve, a woman who claims that her business is shadows. The widow of a recently deceased real estate mogul, her grief isn't entirely convincing. But she knows what lies between the darkness and the light inside men. And what she knows about Ritter is more than he can bear . . . and more than he can resist. Private Midnight is a seductive story of grit, gunplay, vampirism, and a bit of bondage, all filtered through the mind of the "brilliantly illuminating" author and multimedia artist Kris Saknussemm (Alain de Botton, author of How Proust Can Change Your Life). "Off-the-wall strange and surreal—and definitely not recommended as a Mother's Day gift." —Kirkus Reviews
