BOOK REVIEW: Sirens

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 seventeen-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 realises 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?

About the author

Joseph Knox was born and raised in and around Stoke and Manchester, where he worked in bars and bookshops before moving to London. He runs, writes and reads compulsively.

Sirens is his first novel.

"Sirens is a secret I've been keeping for years, writing around bar jobs and book selling.

The novel grew out of night-walking around Manchester and seeing a whole other side to the city," Mr Knox said.

Sirens is available from Doubleday from January 30, 2017. The RRP is $32.99.
