Monona Quinn is the towns’ newspaper editor. After hearing about the beloved priest with his throat slit, she is sure she will be involved in the investigation of the murder. Father O’Bannon was her best friend.

Doug Quinn, husband to Monica, worries about his wife putting herself in the path of another murder, since she had previously involved herself in a prior one.

Father O’Bannon is the priest for the St. Anne’s parish. He was a good kind man with a good deal of patience, yet someone in the area wanted him dead.

Lashandra Cooper is the counties police detective. She works with Mo to figure out who could have had that much hate to kill a priest.

Mo is in shock over Father O’Bannon’s death. It is something that no one ever imagined would happen in their town. He was a great friend of hers and no one was more dedicated to his parishioners. She wonders did he have a skeleton that just came out of the closet that was never to be revealed or someone was just so hateful to commit such a crime. Who would murder a priest and why would Father O’Bannon ask his lawyer to draw up a codicil making it impossible for anyone to dig into the St. Anne’s cemetery? It was something for Mo to investigate as she tries to find out his killer. As she and Lashandra put their heads together, the lists of suspects continue to mount as they search for answers of the responsible party for this terrible hate crime. While Doug worries about Mo’s interest in the murder, the killer is still roaming the area.

Murder at Midnight will have the reader on the edge of their seat as Mo and Lashandra dig deep into a good man’s death. With some suspenseful events and a touch of mystery that keeps the reader engaged, this is one great whodunit. Mr. Cook kept me fully scoped on the events all the way to the last page. When Mo was in a dangerous situation all I could think about was let her be safe because she had to go home to Doug. I realize it was only a story but it seems so real as if a murder really did take place and the reader is right in the midst of finding the culprit. That is how intriguing this book is and Mr. Cook really makes it realistic.
