The Sound of Sirens

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The ancient city of Chester, Friday night, and the weekend starts here. High summer, skimpy fashions, it’s a hot night, and the town’s relaxed. It’s 11pm and the pubs are beginning to close. The band has just finished playing; packing their instruments away, but the night is still young.

   A young man enters the crowded pub. Walks up to the small stage. Pulls out a handgun and empties four shots into the lead singer. One, two, three four. Waves the gun at the stunned and shocked crowd. Yelling, hollering and screaming breaks out, the crowd parts like the Red Sea, and the killer walks through the valley of death and out into the night, laughing as he goes.

   The Sound of Sirens floats across the humid city.

   Inspector Darriteau is soon on the scene. He only lives locally, and truth is, he’d much rather be at work than lying in bed searching for sleep that rarely comes. The local crime reporter turns up too, Gardenia Floem, nice woman, nice teeth.

   ‘Is this drugs related?’ she asks.

   ‘How the hell do I know?’ mutters Walter. ‘Get her out of here!’

   So begins David Carter’s fascinating Walter Darriteau murder mystery, “The Sound of Sirens”, but is it drugs related, Walter ponders, and if it isn’t, what’s it all about?

   And Walter doesn’t yet know it, but this is only the first of three equally dreadful killings. He is going to be a very busy man, just as he likes it. 

   This is David’s eighth book and a compelling read, available as a paperback or out now as an ebook on most platforms.   

325 Pages.
