- Gipsy Acre was a truly beautiful upland site with views out to sea and in Michael Rogers it stirred a child-like fantasy. There, amongst the dark fir trees, he planned to build a house, find a girl and live happily ever after. Yet, as he left the village, a shadow of menace hung over the land. For this was the place where accidents happened. Perhaps Michael should have heeded the locals warnings: There's no luck for them as meddles with Gipsys Acre. Michael Rogers is a man who is about to learn the true meaning of the old saying In my end is my beginning.
- The title Endless Night was taken from William Blakes Auguries of Innocence and describes Christies favourite theme in the novel: a twisted character, who always chooses evil over good.
- Christie finished Endless Night in six weeks, as opposed to the three-four months that most of her other novels took. Despite being in her seventies while writing it, she told an interviewer that being Michael, the twenty-something narrator, wasnt difficult. After all, you hear people like him talking all the time.
- The book is dedicated to Christie's relative "Nora Prichard from whom I first heard the legend of Gipsy's Acre." Gipsy's Acre was a field on the Welsh moors
