Book Review by Jessica Maguire


Believing that content, happy characters make boring stories, Danish authors Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis bring readers colorful characters and a gripping, twisting storyline in Death of a Nightingale.

Natasha Doroshenko has gotten herself into quite a mess. A Ukrainian mail order bride with a Danish fiancee, Natasha is convicted of his murder. Pursued by the police, she runs. To make matters worse, Natasha already has a sordid past that has the Danish secret service as well as Ukrainian special agents trailing her.

Nina Borg is a Danish Red Cross nurse familiar with Natasha since they once worked together. Nina helped protect Natasha from her fiancee when he was abusive. Despite his abuse, Nina just cannot picture Natasha as a murderer.  

Nina and Natasha's lives are further intertwined in an effort to protect Natasha's daughter. Natasha, already an escaped convict, is attempting to kidnap her child from state custody. The deeper Nina gets involved with Natasha and her daughter, the more she realizes she really knows nothing about her former co-worker or her sordid past.

Does this story sound intriguing yet? Well, there are more characters intertwined in the story, more plot twists, and even more intrigue. But to find out, you'll just have to pick up a copy of this book and get cozy. Happy reading!
