About the author
Joseph grew up just outside Manchester and lived and worked as a bookseller there for 8 years. His latest novel, The Smiling Man, published on 8 March 2018, is set in the streets of Manchester and reflects all the depth, colour and life of the city. Joseph’s debut title, Sirens, is a gritty, compelling crime tale, also featuring Detective Aidan Waits.
Reviews for 'Sirens':
"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)
"Manchester throbs with lowlife in this startling debut . . . a page-turner with a beating heart. I loved it." (Sarah Hilary)
"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)
