Tara Moss delivers a world of beauty and danger, of French cabaret and terrible revenge in her 5th literary installment, Siren.

Famous for her hands on research, Tara was set on fire by Hollywood stunt company West EFX, choked unconscious by Ultimate Fighter 'Big' John McCarthy, and earned her PI licence for this latest novel.

Best of all, Mak is back.

Mak Vanderwall - beautiful, street-wise daughter of a cop, graduate in forensic psychology, and now PI - is hired by a widowed mother to track down her missing nineteen-year-old son. Has he come to harm? Or has he run off with a bizarre troupe of shady French cabaret artists sweeping through Australia? Has the dark beauty of the burlesque, the magic, the mind-bending contortion, beguiled him? Or has he been seduced by the mysterious and amoral older woman who has a terrifying starring role in the troupe's modern performances of the Grand Guignol 'Theatre of Fear', famous in Paris in the early 1900s? And what of the rumours of violence and tragedy that have plagued the troupe for the past decade? Is their horrifying past fact or fiction?

Meanwhile, Mak is increasingly obsessed with the powerful Cavanagh family, one of Australia's richest and most ruthless families, whom she believes has got away with murder. And it seems their security advisor Mr White, and his hit man, Luther Hand, may not have forgotten about Mak either ...

Tara will be on tour throughout Australia in September, catch her in the closest captial city near you!

Pre order Siren now. After all, who can resist a good thriller series that began with a stiletto murderer?
