Publisher's Summary

In Nazi-occupied Paris, most Frenchmen tread warily, but gay nightclub singer Yves Lacroix puts himself in the spotlight with every performance. As a veteran of France's doomed defense, a survivor of a prison camp, and a "degenerate", he knows he's a target. His comic stage persona disguises a shamed, angry heart and gut-wrenching fear for a sister embedded in the Resistance.
Yet Yves ascends the hierarchy of Parisian nightlife to become a star, attracting the attention - and the protection - of Nazi Oberst Heinrich von Starck. To complicate matters further, young foot soldier Falk Harfner's naïve adoration of Yves threatens everything he's worked for. So does Aryan ideologue von Grimmstein, rival to von Starck, who sees something "a bit like a Jew" in Yves.
When an ill-chosen quip can mean torture at the hands of the Gestapo, being the acclaimed Nightingale of Paris might cost Yves his music and his life.

A Harrowing Glimpse into Nazi Occupied France

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would most certainly recommend this audiobook; the narration, the story itself with the tentative bits of romance, the danger and bit of nervous fear it inspired in me, marks a novel that is very much well done!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nightingale?

I just loved the characters and the moments of emotion b/w the m/c and his two very different lovers.

What about Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance did you like?

I liked his voice and pacing! It fit with the characters and the story.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

For much of the book I was on bated breath waiting for the moment we’re this would all go wrong!

Any additional comments?

Loved the attention to detail! This felt like a researched book, which is so rare you have to appreciate it when you find it!
