"Knox presents the city as pungently and uncompromisingly as Ian Rankin does Edinburgh" (Guardian)
"A firecracker of a crime tale. His writing is taut, atmospheric and studded with eye-catching descriptions. An arresting new talent." (Metro)
"Razor-sharp urban noir – very special indeed." (Lee Child)
"Sirens is a powerhouse of noir. Joseph Knox owns Manchester and paints it in all its grimy colours." (Val McDermid)
"Thrilling, breathless stuff" (Observer)
"The dark, gritty underbelly of Manchester is captured with eviscerating authenticity in this debut . . . This is urban noir at its freshest and most ferocious." (Daily Mail)
"A noir in that great tradition of the American writers James M Cain and Dashiel Hammet . . . it reminded me a bit of Chandler’s LA, the whole city is corrupt, the authority figures are as bad as the criminals." (Jake Kerridge on Open Book, Radio 4)
"Jumps straight into the top league of English noir." (The Times)
"Manchester throbs with lowlife in this startling debut . . . a page-turner with a beating heart. I loved it." (Sarah Hilary)
"This is an excellent read; it feels both classic and completely new and is remarkably assured for a first outing." (Stylist)
"Gripping, powerfully compelling debut" (Daily Express)
"Waits’ first fictional outing is a shadowy, disturbing narrative and once you start reading it’s hard to resist the call. Sirens is the best British crime debut of the last five years." (Crimescene Magazine)
"A fierce, assured and utterly compelling debut . . . A Ross MacDonald for the 21st century." (Stav Sherez)
"Great read. A powerful piece of Manchester noir, brutal, poignant and dark as tar." (Cath Staincliffe)
"Fresh and darkly stylish, Sirens is a striking debut that marks the arrival of a major new crime writing talent." (Chris Ewan)
Sirens is the brooding and assured debut from Joseph Knox, the next big name in crime fiction.See all Product description

I had no problem following the story and believing in the characters motives as some have said, but then perhaps this book is not for everyone. However, I cannot recommend it highly enough... take the risk of losing seven quid and read it if you think you might like it!
I must add lastly that I lived in Manchester for 25 years and I did indeed find the tone of the book authentic!
