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.

    "Decent enough, but drearily read"

    You do wonder how most of the characters survived to this point without liver damage, but apart from that it's engaging enough. The reading is unnecessarily monotonic, though, and the emphasis is sometimes on the wrong word.

    Story
    "Drug fuelled politics, family suspense"
    If you could sum up Sirens in three words, what would they be?

    Look at Headline


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    That would be the Bug, because he seemed to be the most in depth character, even though it was only a small role.


    Have you listened to any of Lewys Taylor’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not as yet, but as this was Knox's first book he may well be used again in the future considering the publishing heavyweights he has behind him of Penguin and Random House.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was not really designed for this, although the opening of the book reminded me of the opening to Lethal Weapon.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a worthy addition to the 2017 Theakstons Old Peculier New Blood Panel, hosted and chosen by Val McDermid.

    "Poor"

    The narrator was annoying and the sound quality was poor. I couldn't get into the story either

    Story
    "Turgid and a bit too smart arse!"

    Considering this debut novel was much anticipated and the subject of a bidding war among publishers, it didn't live up to expectations. The basic plot in itself is fine but I thought it overly long, padded out a bit in places. It also came across as a bit 'smart arse' for me - a bit showy on things like drug shorthand and drug nicknames and the Manchester underworld. Above all though the main character DC Aidan Waits didn't work for me - he was just dull and irritating. Hugely disappointing book

    "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.
    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.

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