Author A.S.Chambers.

Since her first appearances in The Casebook of Sam Spallucci, readers have loved the vampire known as Nightingale.

Her latest outing, Songbird, tells of her rise from poverty as a mortal orphan on the streets of Victorian England to leading the Children of Cain, the society of vampires that inhabit the world of paranormal investigator, Sam Spallucci.

Along the way, she suffers at the hand of a sadistic parish priest and his wife before being rescued by her vampire father and subsequently travelling to the Wild West of the late 1800s to track down her missing brother, Justice.
