Patrick Kelly



Joe Robbins is caught between the lure of a siren’s song and the mad schemes of a serial killer.

Joe is hired by the mesmerizing rock star Sophie Tyler to investigate a fraud. Sophie comes to Austin for a music festival, and she and Joe spend time together. She begins to cast admiring glances his way, and Joe thinks he might have a shot at a rock star romance.

Joe then learns Sophie has a pattern of losing money on investments. He solves the fraud case in a couple days, but then the perpetrator is murdered, and Sophie’s manager disappears. 

The police are pulled in, and Joe’s role is over, except for the budding romance with Sophie. But then the missing manager calls Joe to ask probing questions about Sophie and the fraud investigation. With some digging, Joe discovers the manager’s true identity--a serial killer on the run for many years.

Now the killer is coming for Sophie. And he’s coming for Joe.

Join Joe Robbins on a wild chase from the hills of Central Texas to the hills of Hollywood.

As with all of the Joe Robbins financial thrillers, A Siren’s Love can be read on a standalone basis. Patrick Kelly’s financial thrillers are chock-full of action, bursting with suspense, and topped off with a trace of romance.
