What people are saying about The Night of the Mosquito:

“This riveting and brutal crime thriller kept me on the edge of my seat right from the start with its apocalyptic cataclysm, cannibalistic serial killer, compelling characters and glimmering of paranormal atonement. Dramatic and intense, the story moves along at a brisk pace with a series of chilling developments, intertwining the lives of a divergent assembly in one small town. An implied connection to Jack the Ripper and a gruesome (and thought-provoking) reaction to a mosquito bite lend a horrific element to a plot that fuses people of different backgrounds, tragedies and motive to clamor for survival. A terrifying climactic ending with an unforeseen twist evokes a story with all the elements of a great thriller! I couldn't put it down!!” USA Kindle reviewer

“Where has this author been?? He's up there with Stephen King, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and the rest. You will not be disappointed by these books and characters.” UK Kindle reviewer

“This really was a top read. Nonstop action, except Max China doesn’t shy away from touchy subjects. The words ‘nonstop action’ normally means lots of guns and shooting and a hero who takes on the bad guys with plenty of fearlessness and valour. Not in Mosquito. We’ve got a huge escaped cannibal who gets off on eating people while they’re alive, a riot in a lunatic asylum, psychotic nutcases who seem to feel no pain fighting each other to the death, a mute who witnessed his sister run over by a train, psychologists trained in kung fu and I don’t know what else.
This book will keep you awake at night.” Australian Kindle reviewer

“A fast-paced thrill-ride with the scariest character in a long time! Max China weaves together an escaped lunatic, a traumatized young man, and a town having trouble coming to grips with the aftermath of a natural phenomenon. This is a thriller in every sense.” USA Kindle reviewer.

“Reads as if it were written by a highly agitated, very pent up Stephen King, in a dark, foul mood.” USA Kindle reviewer.

“China's writing is great; he excels at bone-crunching action scenes.” USA Kindle reviewer.

“Having read The Sister, and the William Boule books I had to buy more from this author. Gripping, intriguing and satisfying storytelling. Thoroughly enjoyed.” UK Kindle reviewer

“Max China's detail is marvellous, and his research must be too. His storylines are unusual and excellently written. Another good read.” UK Kindle reviewer

An apocalyptic event strikes without warning, wiping out power and communications throughout the country. Amid the ensuing chaos, a six-foot-ten-inch killer claiming links to Jack the Ripper escapes custody. Seemingly unstoppable, he leaves a trail of death and destruction in his wake.
Meanwhile, a lonely figure wracked with guilt haunts the scene of a childhood accident, while in the village of Churchend; retired hypnotherapist Michael Anderson suffers an extreme reaction to a mosquito bite. The resulting delirium and soul-searching convince him his life is about to change – but first, he must fight to stay alive.

A rich and varied cast of characters is portrayed in this gripping thriller. Filled with action, suspense and moving drama, you’ll root for the heroes in this roller-coaster ride of a story. This is a gripping psychological thriller full of twists you will not want to miss!
