Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Sirens by Joseph Knox, read by Lewis Taylor.

It starts with the girl. How it ends is up to DC Aidan Waits.

Isabelle Rossiter has run away again.

When Aidan Waits, a troubled junior detective, is summoned to her father's penthouse home, he finds a manipulative man with powerful friends.

But retracing Isabelle's steps through a dark, nocturnal world, Waits finds something else: an intelligent 17-year-old girl who's scared to death of something. As he investigates her story and the unsolved disappearance of a young woman just like her, he realizes Isabelle was right to run away.

Soon Waits is cut loose by his superiors, stalked by an unseen killer and dangerously attracted to the wrong woman. He's out of his depth and out of time.

How can he save the girl when he can't even save himself?

    "Manchester at its darkest..."

    This is very special indeed. Lewys Taylor gives an excellent performance. The book itself is one of the best crime novels I've read in a long time. A shockingly polished debut from a new and distinctive voice in crime fiction. It's exciting to know that Knox and Waits will be around for a long time and even more so that I'm going to take that journey with them. Remarkable

    "Brilliant"

    Having read other reviews thought I'd give this a go, thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrator read it just right to give the character the right tone and mind set. Really empathise with the main character and was a little surprised by the end, pleasantly surprised though. Hopefully there will be another with same character.

    Love crime books and history but not always together. But happy to expand my horizons.

    "Grim world"

    This is a well written and well read book. Just unrelentingly grim. Just not my thing. But I did listen right to the end.

    Story
    "Too dark for me."
    What disappointed you about Sirens?

    I believe this sort of thing does happen ... but I really don't find it entertaining. <br/>I couldn't connect with any of the characters. Couldn't quite believe the storyline either.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The book made me feel 'dirty', Perhaps I am just the wrong age profile for this author. I don't often give up on a book unless it is poorly narrated .. and this was fine ... but I couldn't have cared less about any of the characters and couldn't stir up any enthusiasm for them.

    "Mancunian Noir..."

    A dark and gripping story in a bleak and gritty Manchester. British noir at its finest, hopefully it's the start of a series for DC Waits.

    I enjoy mainly Crime and thrillers books, but am delighted when I sometimes stumble across other well written books.

    "Not a very engaging story. I"

    I found the characters were two dimensional. To the extent,I was uninterested as to the outcome of the story.

    Story
    "Excellent Plot-but over-egineered in the telling."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I thought that the story-line and plot were excellent BUT I found it was made unnecessarily complicated in the telling. I kept thinking I'd missed a chapter, or part of one but that wasn't the case. For me, it made hard work of listening, even though the narrator was so good and perfect for the novel. I also thought it was overly 'dark' and would have benefitted from a little more grey rather than black. What a shame because that spoiled it too for me. Look forward to more from this author though.

    "Very Dark "

    Interesting story. Very bleak. I liked the construction of the main character. Twist wasn't great though.
