    Description

    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement?

    As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem. For the victims are all enemies of a seemingly ordinary young boy - a boy who is gripped by the same dreams that haunt Bryan. Meanwhile, a shadowy vigilante, seemingly armed with superhuman powers, is out there killing the killers. And Bryan and Pookie's superiors - from the mayor on down - seem strangely eager to keep the detectives from discovering the truth.

    Doubting his own sanity and stripped of his badge, Bryan begins to suspect that he's stumbled into the crosshairs of a shadow war that has gripped his city for more than a century - a war waged by a race of killers living in San Francisco's unknown, underground ruins, emerging at night to feed on those who will not be missed.

    And as Bryan learns the truth about his own intimate connections to the killings, he discovers that those who matter most to him are in mortal danger…and that he may be the only man gifted - or cursed - with the power to do battle with the nocturnals.

    Featuring a dazzlingly plotted mystery and a terrifying descent into a nightmarish underworld - long with some of the most incredible action scenes ever put to paper, and an explosive, gut-wrenching conclusion you won't soon forget, Nocturnal is the most spectacular outing to date from one of the genre's brightest stars.

    Fun and entertaining.

    Scott makes the characters loved and hated. There were times that I actually laughed out loud and cringed in horror. If your not afraid of a little gore and mayhem you will find this listen very entertaining.

    I want more

    I loved this book. It was scary and a little funny at the same time. The characters were great!! Sigler makes it easy to imagine them. If this was a movie I would definitely go see it. Brian would most definitely need to be Tom Hardy.
    I look forward to a sequel if Scott Sigler has it in him to write it.

    Nocturnal Not Bad

    Would you listen to Nocturnal: A Novel again? Why?

    Probably not. The plot was pretty memorable.

    What other book might you compare Nocturnal: A Novel to and why?

    "Twilight Eyes" by Dean Koontz. Good guys battling unseen monsters.

    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure but did a good job.

    Any additional comments?

    This was one of bargain buys but was pleasantly hard to put down. Well written and engaging.

    Loved it

    Though the book is over 20 hours long, it will keep engaged the entire time. No dull points, no fluff, just pure entertainment.

    creative author dips into the unknown

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nocturnal: A Novel to be better than the print version?

    This audio book was represented by an excellent actor, if you want to define Phil Gigante. The audio version made it an excellent drama as well as an interesting story.

    Any additional comments?

    During the Christmas season there isn't much time to write reviews, so I am not taking time to do this book justice. This novel has unexpected events, humor, horror, mystery, and romance in it . The vocabulary and the lay out of the story was well done. I also felt the audio part of this story was excellent. I loved some of the characters. Well done and worth the read.

    Another AMAZING story

    Love all things Scott Signler and this was no exception. I do not know how Scott comes up with this stuff (author of Infected, Contagious, and Ancestor- all EXCELLENT books too) but he has a unique story telling ability that makes you think of his books long after you are done reading them! My husband loves him too! Look what other amazing authors have to say about him-"A terrifying science thriller that reads like Silence of the Lambs as written by Michael Crichton. Inventive and deeply disturbing." -- Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Assassin's Code (love Assassins Code Series)
    "Sigler is in full control of his talent for sharp characterization and amazing visualization." -- Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
    (love the Sookie Stackhouse series). You will not be disappointed, give Scott a try. Excerpt: "Doubting his own sanity and stripped of his badge, Bryan begins to suspect that he’s stumbled into the crosshairs of a shadow war that has gripped his city for more than a century—a war waged by a race of killers living in San Francisco’s unknown, underground ruins, emerging at night to feed on those who will not be missed". HECK YEAH!
