Il «Club di mezzanotte», una misteriosa organizzazione criminale di individui senza volto e senza scrupoli, gente che ha soldi e potere a sufficienza per arrivare dove vuole, quando vuole: finanzieri, imprenditori, politici e militari. John Stefanovitch lo sa bene: il tenente della polizia di New York infatti ha pagato un prezzo altissimo nel tentativo di fermare uno dei più pericolosi membri dell'organizzazione, lo spietato Alexandre St. Germain, il «Danzatore della morte». Ora John non ha più nulla da perdere e attende soltanto l'occasione per vendicarsi. E quando incontra Sarah McGinnis, una brillante giornalista che da anni indaga sul Club, capisce che il momento è giunto: il momento di andare sino in fondo...

An average Patterson thriller muddled by inconsistent writing and sappy melodrama. Certain aspects of this book I really liked, but there were some scenes I found incredibly stupid. Like when a dying policeman who knows the identity of his murderer decides to spend his last half-hour on Earth catchi Leggi tutto
I’m being generous because it was early in Patterson’s career. I liked the characters and they even had potential to see another book but the story was just not enough. It never took off and I think it could have. I didn’t like the first Cross book but have loved most of the rest. This should have b Leggi tutto
In which Mr. Patterson tells a story about mafia and though it's better than the previous initial books it's still not that good I certainly liked it better than the first two books. People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I hav Leggi tutto
Very exciting! I always enjoy books like this that have action and suspense on almost every page. James Patterson is a master of adding unexpected twists and turns to his stories and "The Midnight Club" doesn't disappoint in this regard.
It was okay.
First published in 1989, I somehow missed reading The Midnight Club by James Patterson, not to be confused with his series the Women's Murder Club. The protagonist in The Midnight Club is John Stefanovitch, a New York cop confined to a wheelchair after being shot and left for dead by the Grave Dancer Leggi tutto
I've been a long time fan of James Patterson and have read most everything he has written...with the exception of his earliest novels. So, I'm trying to go back and read Patterson's earlier books. I have to say I was very disappointed in The Midnight Club. It just didn't live up to the quality I've
James Patterson has a talent for creating suspense. Having read a couple of his books now, this is something that I know I can look forward to when I see his name on a cover. The Midnight Club is a good story overall. I couldn’t help but question some of the decisions here, however. Stefanovitch’s co Leggi tutto
Buku ini menyiksaku 😂 Ya, tiga perempat buku ini aku baca dengan agak terpaksa. Terjemahan agak kaku dan ... aneh. Harus mikir dulu untuk tahu maksud dari satu kalimat dan hubungannya dengan cerita. Ada juga beberapa singkatan/istilah kepolisian yang ga dijelaskan artinya. Tapi, ceritanya sendiri men Leggi tutto
Had some slower parts but in general I really liked the protag and honestly I was really impressed with the way Patterson wrote the character. The story was strong and I enjoyed reading it. The slower parts may discourage you from pushing through, but be a champ, do it. It is worth it. They don't la Leggi tutto
