Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In keeping with most of my books, The Night of the Mosquito is a multi-genre novel which, while it does what it says on the 'tin', is about much more than a serial killer, or the apocalyptic event that forms the backdrop to the story.
It's a book about trauma and violence, unfulfilled potential, sadness, and lifelong guilt, the kindness of strangers, retribution and finally resolution. There's even a little romance. In short, it's a roller-coaster ride filled with thrills and spills..

I hope you enjoy it. 

About the Author

Max China is the author of three novels to date: The Sister, The Life and Times of William Boule, and The Night of The Mosquito.
His work is typically an interesting blend of crime, mystery and suspense, but often contains elements of other genres, such as action, adventure and the paranormal.
He is currently working on a fourth book, an expansion on the short story previously released as Don't Turn on The Light.

I've read all of Max China's books and loved them, but I was absolutely riveted by this one. I finished in record time because I simply could not put it down. I love the author's writing style and the pacing was great. He introduced all these compelling threads and wove them together and took me right along to the end. He is a master at creating believable and horrifying psychotic monsters. Much of the book is quite horrific but it does end on an uplifting note. The author is quite knowledgeable on police procedure and scientific methods. I found it all quite believable and I think that is what made is so frightening. It seemed so real ... so possible. I highly recommend all books by this writer but this one is, by far, my favorite.

China's The Night of the Mosquito is a hyper violent and fast-paced serial killer thriller. For a relatively short novel, there's an awful lot going on in the book: several serial killers, Jack the Ripper, a mutating hypnotherapist, big scientific ideas, even a ghost story. Sometimes it's a bit much, granted, enough action for several books. And I wasn't clear as to who the protagonist/hero was until near the end of the book. Having said that, the good far outweighs the bad. China's writing is great; he excels at bone-crunching action scenes. If you like serial killer thrillers, give it a shot.

Have you ever read a book that was so engrossing that you didn't want it to end? Well, I have just spent time with Max China's newest book,, THE NIGHT OF THE MOSQUITO, and when I was done, I wanted more! It is 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 and I look forward to Max China's next book! Get ready for Halloween with 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!!

Having read previous works of the author, I went into this expecting intricacy, complex plotlines and character relationships, as well as a high standard of writing as such. I was definitely not disappointed. The only thing I can complain about is, it could have been longer. Some parts could have done with a bit more detail and explanation, but knowing the author and the way he tends to connect his books, the answers I didn't find might yet appear somewhere. Great read, highly recommended.

Reads as if it were written by a highly agitated, very pent up, Stephen King, in a dark, foul mood. If Stephen King is too bland for you, Max China's your man! Is it well written? Definitely YES! Night of the Mosquito is a REAL BOOK in an ocean of fast ebooks.
It was so intense at times I was wishing it to end...it's that good.

This is a Kindle Unlimited book and I read it for free. OK, I pay for the subscription to Kindle Unlimited, but you get the idea. It was on my TBR shelf for a while because I was in my genre switching mode.

An additional, secondary title of A Gripping Psychological Thriller attracted me to this book. I expect the author to make me think as I consider the more twisted part of a mind bent away from the norm of societal codes. There is a fast start with two young people, Timmy and Sarah, escaping from what might be a house of horror, compounded by an accident that leaves one dead and the other mute as a result of trauma. Right away, I want to know what went on in that house, ostensibly an orphanage, that caused one of its staff members help the kids escape.
We immediately jump from 1987 to a 2014 (we know this because dates serve as chapter titles) mental hospital where a cannibalistic patient is scheduled for transfer to another facility. His penchant for eating the hospital staff as well as his gigantic size dictate a ten-person guard detail while the giant cannibal is in transit. Psychological thriller and mental hospital, OK, that tracks.

Now we go to a guy living alone who just wants to read a book he discovered inadvertently in a second hand book shop. No author recognition, but the book is about the work of a former colleague/mentor of his who worked with gifted patients, those with seemingly paranormal abilities. Then our reader gets bitten or stung by an abnormally large sized mosquito, or at least a relative of a mosquito. OK, a nod to the psychological thriller idea, but I really want to see China (the author) tie this mosquito into anything.
