Sirens in the Night
By Michael Bradley
Genre: Fiction, Supernatural Thriller
When three corpses are found at a construction site in Philadelphia, homicide detective Samantha Ballard is assigned to investigate the bizarre deaths. The bodies seem like a hoax – withered like ancient mummies, yet dressed in modern day clothing. As more mummified corpses begin to appear throughout the city, Samantha must embark on an investigation that erodes the line between the possible and impossible.
Jack Allyn, a radio DJ who thinks his career is in a downward spiral, has his world rocked by the unusual murder of his friend. As Jack begins to search for answers, he finds himself coming face to face with a force that is as malevolent as it is entrancing.
With his life in danger, Jack must join forces with Samantha to save the city from an evil that threatens the people of Philadelphia. But with the odds stacked against them, can Jack and Samantha save their city from a primeval force with a deadly purpose?
First of all, I like the play on words with the title ‘Sirens in the Night’.
This book combines Greek mythology with police/crime thriller which made it quite appealing to me. I think the main protaganists’ reactions and consequent actions were logical and believable, when faced with the extraordinary in a modern society.
I liked the two perspectives which complemented each other very well, filling in the blanks from each. That being said, I found myself liking one more than the other and not the one I thought I would.
The premise was what drew me in and it was interesting but I felt the story would have delivered more on that, if details weren’t revealed so early on. Even with that though, the story remained interesting and the ending was explosive and satisfying. Overall, an enjoyable supernatural thriller well worth the read!
