Nightingale Man by Jane Toombs

Nightingale Man by Jane Toombs

Jane Toombs, the award-winning author of over eighty published books and twenty some novellas, lives on the south shore of Lake Superior with the Viking from her past and their grandcat, Kinko.

When “Lucky” Luke Ray, a cocky young American pilot volunteers to fly for the French in World War I, he has no idea what’s ahead for him. Soon he’s in England, under orders from the British Spy Master to rescue Nurse Cavell in German- occupied Belgium, where she’s on trial for being a spy. At least he believes that’s his mission until treachery in his own ranks puts him in deadly danger. Which one is responsible? The woman he wants? The man he mistrusts? Or has he been set up from the start? Unless he’s more lucky than he’s ever been, he’ll soon be facing a Boche firing squad…

Luke strode away from his burning Nieuport, passed between stone pillars at the entrance to the cemetery and headed down the hill. Sensing movement in the distance, he looked past the ruined church to the woods on the far side of the village. Soldiers in gray-green uniforms and pickelhaubes, spiked helmets, trotted from the trees into the field.

They find a reality far more evil than either of them could have imagined along with the painful realization that sometimes the truth cuts deeper than a lie.
