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?
Sirens in the Night was an entertaining and interesting read! Surely unlike anything I have read before. It is a thriller/detective book that mixes in some mythology, a little pop culture, and a whole lot of intrigue. The characters were quite likable - with the female protagonist being my favorite of course. Any readers of mine will remember how much I like a strong female protagonist and that is what I got in the form of Samantha Ballard. Bradley's writing will have you enjoying the characters and atmosphere of the story. This book may not be for everyone, but definitely will be for some. Mainly, readers interested in science fiction and crime thrillers will deeply enjoy this read.
