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.

Fantastic WWII love story

Would you consider the audio edition of Nightingale to be better than the print version?

There is no print version at this time. That said, the audiobook was fantastic. The story was great and the narrator was fabulous! He was so nice and easy to listen to, I hope to hear him do other books in the future.

Any additional comments?

While Aleks insists this is NOT a romance, there is a love story in it, which is beautifully told amid the backdrop of Nazi occupied Paris.
