Description:

Five Minutes to Midnight takes place in Manhattan in a grim, alternate Earth called "The Night Watch" Universe.  It is a world where "Masks" began fighting crime back in the 1930s, but no superhuman powers were ever developed.  Here, the Soviet Union never collapsed, and the Cold War is more harsh than ever.  And it is about to turn deadly...

When the Soviet Foreign Minister, Vladimir Siminski goes missing days before he is scheduled to speak at an historic UN Summit on nuclear disarmament, the Defense Department calls "The Night Watch" for help.  A team of Masks who answer to no one, they soon find themselves caught in a web of intrigue and espionage, battling extremist militia groups and the ticking clock.

Note: The Night Watch Universe is a dark and gritty Iron Age setting.  It is not the typical "four-color" or "Saturday morning cartoon" world where the Heroes are always upstanding and good.  It is a world of shades of grey.  So get ready to get your hands dirty!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
