In the Nightside, the hidden heart of London where it's always 3 AM, Detective John Taylor must find an elusive singer known as The Nightingale. Her silken voice has inexplicably lured many a fan to suicide--and Taylor is determined to stop her, before the whole neighborhood falls under her trance. But to catch the swift-winged Nightingale, he'll have to hear the deadly music--and survive.

My Review:
this third book in the nightside series was enjoyable but "skipped around" a bit, as John had several "mini crimes" to solve before the main mystery. Which is not necessarily good OR bad, just different than the first two. All in all, this series is a great "palette cleanser" and fun getaway if you are looking fun action and adventure-but be forewarned they are pretty graphic violence.

3.5 stars.
