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.

Simon Green’s Nightside is a macabre and thoroughly entertaining world JIM BUTCHER, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files

In the concealed heart of London known as the Nightside, a place of everlasting darkness where it is always 3 a.m., 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.

Green's characterisation deserves praise as well as his prose. Simon R. Green is a man who knows what works and delivers . . . no less than a perfectly satisfactory reading experience
Simon R. Green's Nightside series is a delight from beginning to end . . . The Nightside books are, unashamedly, all about having a bloody good time reading works that have more than their fair share of "ics". Fantastic, comedic, sarcastic, caustic and heroic are just a few that spring to mind
Nightingale's Lament is a good addition in the Nightside series
Cross The X-Files with The Twilight Zone . . . and one might have a glimmer of an idea what the Nightside is like
If you like your noir pitch-black, then return to the Nightside
