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.This is the third book in Simon Green's Nightside series. I first read Green last year for the R.I.P. II Challenge hosted by Carl and found that I quite liked his writing style. It reminds me of a bunch of different series that I have read before, but somehow I find myself liking this series better than the others. So much so that I am trying to track down book four, but where it is an older series I will likely have to order online and I am trying not to do that because I spend too much money when I do that!
So, on to the book. This series is about Detective John Taylor. He is an interesting character. He has a third eye that makes him capable of finding things. So, that understandably makes him a good detective. The only problem is he has a lot of enemies and when he uses his third eye it makes it easier for them to hunt him down. This means he has the power but not it is too risky to use it all that often which means that he also has to act like a regular human being in his profession. In this book he is hunting down a singer who has alienated herself from her family and friends. Her father is worried about her and wants Taylor to check into things and make sure that his daughter is alright. This leads the reader on an interesting journey. All the characters in this series are not what they first may seem, so it means that you never really know what is going to happen next!
Another enjoyable entry in this series. Hopefully soon I will be able to read the next one and not wait a year!
(As to Breaking Dawn... pfft... I am really not surprised about the direction this book is going! Does that mean I like it? Nope. Just doesn't overly surprise me.)
