The Last Nightingale (2007)
Anthony Flacco
"From its opening pages - when we are plunged headlong into the terrifying chaos of the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906 - to its riveting climax, The Last Nightingale offers an abundance of those page-turning pleasures readers seek in historical thrillers."
