Old, New, Borrowed, Blue: Joseph Knox Recommends Four Books Every Crime Fiction Lover Should Read

Described by The Times as a book that "jumps straight into the top league of English noir", Joseph Knox's electrifying debut, Sirens is hypnotic reading, plunging readers headlong into the malevolent urban sprawl of Manchester’s criminal underbelly. Our Thriller of the Month for January, Sirens is a novel honed by Knox’s experience drawn from the bars and nightlife of the city, fused with his voracious hunger for the very best crime fiction. Who better then to suggest a trousseau of criminal delights? Here he selects an unmissable quartet: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

“I was everything a young person should be. Furious. Drunk. In love.” - Joseph Knox discusses Sirens

Joseph Knox’s Sirens is an out-of-the-darkness, nocturnal descent into the hardened criminal landscape of Manchester. Away from the eyes of the press, an M.P.’s daughter has gone missing and disgraced detective Aidan Waits has been hand-picked as the ideal man for the job; what follows is a mesmeric journey into a dread-filled urban noir. Sirens is Joseph Knox’s first novel.
