Publisher's Summary

Bram Stoker Awards - Finalist, 2019

Ann Dávila Cardinal's Five Midnights is a “wickedly thrilling” (William Alexander) audiobook based on the el Cuco myth set against the backdrop of modern-day Puerto Rico. 

Five friends cursed. Five deadly fates. Five nights of retribución. 

If Lupe Dávila and Javier Utierre can survive each other’s company, together they can solve a series of grisly murders sweeping though Puerto Rico. But the clues lead them out of the real world and into the realm of myths and legends. And if they want to catch the killer, they'll have to step into the shadows to see what's lurking there - murderer or monster?  

“A frightening, fast-paced thriller.” (Julianna Baggott, Alex Award-winning author of Pure)

Critic Reviews

"Almarie Guerra is wonderfully cast to narrate Cardinal's fabulously creepy murder mystery...Guerra's well-paced performance, including her perfect Spanish pronunciation, will keep listeners engaged with the suspenseful narrative, which is equal parts crime investigation, macabre ghost story, and slow-burn romance. For thrills and chills in a tropical setting, this is the ideal pick." — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner

Good book not horror

This book was good but it was not a horror book. If I had to throw it in a group it would be for teenagers. If you read the book I'm sure I'll pick up on all the points from all the books you read as a kid.

Awesome Story!!

This book is so well written. It’s one of those that makes you sad when you are finished.
I keep thinking about it even though I finished it weeks ago.
