    Authors:
    Simon R. Green
    Private eye John Taylor must find the Nightingale before her magical voice ensorcels the entire Nightside - and drives all the denizens of the netherworlds to suicide! No one likes a diva - particularly one who lures her fans to an early grave. In the concealed heart of London known as the Nightside, a place of everlasting darkness, private eye John Taylor has a new case: finding the elusive young songstress known as the Nightingale. The singer has fallen under the influence of a merciless husband-and-wife management team. Once she sang cheerful, upbeat tunes; now her songs are so melancholy that all who hear her are driven to suicide. Taylor is determined to uncover the truth behind this powerful voice, before the whole of the Nightside falls under the singer's deadly spell. But to do so, he must first listen to the Nightingale himself . . . Nightingale's Lament is the third title in Simon R. Green's New York Times bestselling Nightside series.
