The Blurb of Sirens Spell Danger
There are sirens and, then, there are sirens. Some warn you of danger and some lure you into danger…Lured by a sexy siren, Vicky is mistaken for a secret agent, kidnapped, tortured and slated for death. Will he survive and save Bangalore from going up in flames?… There is a serial killer loose in the city leaving mysterious messages around the bodies of the victims. Are the messages a challenge to the police or a siren call to lure another victim…Jay is sent to Bellary to investigate a possible ISI plot. Was it merely a murky political plot or was there something more sinister in the offing? And why were two women suddenly singing siren songs of love?… Three tales of nerve-racking suspense and pulse-pounding action.
A huge fan of crime thrillers and spy books, I started reading Sirens Spell Danger with great anticipation, and it did not disappoint. Three short stories written by three bloggers, a sure recipe for disaster one may think. But what it is actually is an interesting read from start to end.
Femme Fatale is a story about an individual trapped by a beautiful woman and drawn into a terrorist plot. C. Suresh writes a very fast-paced thriller, with great action and plot twists at every turn. Although at some of the story is quite predictable, Suresh manages to hold your interest till the very end. But I feel that the story could be better with a little more editing.
With Belladonna, Radha Sawana tells the story of a serial killer. The thoughts of the killer, the manner of committing the crime, the science behind the crime, and the mythological references are all done in a manner that makes the reader want to read more, and know more. At no point does the story become monotonous or boring? The story is anything but predictable and the twist comes as a surprise. The climax is extremely well-written.
Karthik L writes Bellary, which is the story of a RAW agent sent to investigate, suspicious happenings in the mining town of Bellary. Two women he meets during the course of the journey have an impact on how the story progresses. The twist, in the end, is something that no one can predict.
Sirens Spell Danger did live up to my expectations. All three authors have made a great debut and I am looking forward to reading more from them.
