Description

Siren (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 9) Simon Farraday was a respectable business man; successful, wealthy and with a loving wife and family. He was also heavily into sadomasochistic sex with virtual strangers, judging by the manner of his brutal, squalid murder. 

Detective Sergeant Kate Redman could do without the complexities of this case, coping as she is with trying to maintain her long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Tin, deal with her recurrent attraction to her boss DCI Anderton and support her friend DI Mark Olbeck in his efforts to adopt a child. But investigating a case with such dark undercurrents of desire and jealousy means that the solution to the mystery may hit just a little too close to home… 

Siren is the ninth book in the bestselling series The Kate Redman Mysteries, from crime writer Celina Grace.

    As many reviewers will note, *Siren* is the 9th book in the Kate Redman series. As we have come to expect, the book involves a satisfyingly convoluted mystery, some fairly realistic police work (at least good enough to fool us average readers), and some even more realistic interplay between a cast of characters we have come to know and care about. If you haven't read the series from the first book on, you really should. They're quick reads, relatively inexpensive (the first one in fact is free), and together they provide a facinating story line following the life of a flawed but likeable professional woman. *Siren* in particular reveals some substantial personal growth in Kate as she handles her casework and the hard knocks that apparently constitute her personal life with distinctly more maturity than before. She still makes some seriously questionable choices, and often questions them herself, but she's clearly doing better - at least until the case she is working once again slams her flat at the climax. As a matter of full disclosure, I will note that I do receive advanced copies of the author's books with an obligation to provide honest reviews when they publish. However, I also buy them in paperback form once they becomes available, which I think is a significant pocketbook endorsement.

    I enjoy this series so much. The characters are so well developed, human, and believable. Plots are unique. I hope there are many more.
