An excellent story from Stephen Leather on one of his most enjoyable characters. Jack Nightingale is at best a rascal hiding in sheep's clothing, especially in how he treats his long-suffering assistant, Jenny, but the style in which he is written leaves us always wanting to see more of his adventures. Then there are the other stories in this volume, each one penned by a different author and most of those are written in the same manner in which Leather intended his hero be viewed. There is one story amongst these I could live without, but all the others written by, Alex Shaw, Andrew Peters, Conrad Jones, Matt Hilton, and Robert Waterman, exhibit the wonderful style in their writing that makes me want to find other books by these authors and read them as well.
