Today I’m thrilled to be taking part in the blog tour for White Midnight by Daniel Culver and I get to share my review with you all!
About the author:
Daniel Culver is a writer and editor, currently living and working in east London, having spent his formative years fluttering between the council estates of Essex and the wilds of Asia and the Americas.

About the book:
Elizabeth Nowicki, a British woman and self-confessed stoic, settles down in the seemingly idyllic American town of Midnight, with her new husband and his two children. Six months on, life as a step mom is harder than she thought, and the shine of the American Dream has already worn off.
Bored and lonely, Elizabeth is drawn into a nightmare when someone in a duck mask murders two local cops…and the investigation reaches her new neighbourhood. When this is followed by strange happenings across the street, leading to another death, Elizabeth starts to conduct her own investigation….but can she find the killer before the killer finds her?

White Midnight is one of the quirkiest books I’ve read in a long time, but those quirks are definitely what made it stand out from the crowd for me.
Set in a quiet American town called Midnight, it follows British woman Elizabeth Nowicki as she settles in with her new husband and his two kids. All is not what it seems in Midnight though. When two local cops are murdered by someone in a duck mask, Elizabeth becomes tangled up in the investigation, putting herself firmly in the sights of a dangerous killer.
White Midnight is a superbly-written debut. It is weirdly wonderful, with a very interesting cast of characters, There is a tension that bubbles under the narrative the whole way through, adding a sense of foreboding as to what could happen. I couldn’t put this book down, and more than once it actually made me shudder. Who knew ducks could be so malicious!
Daniel Culver has written a very clever first novel. Highly entertaining, humourous in parts, but always dark. White Midnight is one of the best, most original debuts I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a long time.
