Sirens – Joseph Knox

Sirens, a tale of a disgraced detective, leads us much further into the underground world than most would want to go. In that respect, Sirens was fascinating. However, the characters weren’t very likeable – my favorite character most of the book was the villain. That turned out to be misguided.


Although I enjoyed Sirens overall, I would only give three stars. It took awhile to capture my attention. There were some unique characters, which was greatly appreciated – such as Bug, who likes colorful wigs, scaring people, and ruining lives. The reader never really knew what Bug would do next. It kept things interesting.

Detective Waits himself was … aggravating. He kept doing stupid things and then being surprised by the consequences. Waits was always lying about something, it seemed, and I just wanted to reach through the pages and smack some sense into him.

The plot was well done but seemed sort of unfinished. There wasn’t a cliffhanger or anything, but more information would have been nice. I can’t give examples without spoilers, but I wanted to know what happened to the various characters instead of simply hearing that they were never seen again.

I would recommend this book to those who are fascinated with the underground.
