Get ready for the new drama Midnight, Texas on SyFy UK with the first book in Charlaine Harris's bestselling paranormal mystery series about a small town where only outsiders fit in . . .

Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and the Davy highway. It's a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There's a pawnshop, a diner, and a newcomer, Manfred Bernardo, who just wants to work hard and blend in. But Manfred has secrets of his own . . .
