Welcome to Midnight Hour...

Jennifer Chow: Midnight Escapade
After years of silence, two women decide to meet up in a unique escape room but get trapped in a deadly game from which there may be no escape.

Tracy Clark: Lucky Thirteen
A gun. A last meal. And only one survivor. Sometimes the stars align--but only for the lucky one--as predator and prey come face-to-face one fateful New Year's Eve.

H. C. Chan: Murderers' Feast
Techpreneur John Manley left a trail of duped investors and damaged women in his wake. What happens when two hundred of his closest enemies gather for a five-day gourmet retreat?

Christopher Chambers: In the Matter of Mabel and Bobby Jefferson
It's almost midnight, it's snowing, and a bored call center worker catches a customer inquiry that smells of murder. Is he a knight rescuing the intended victim or someone else's pawn?

Plus, stories by Richie Narvaez, Frankie Bailey, E. A. Aymar, Faye Snowden, Tina Kashian, and many more.
