|Plot Summary of Siren's Call|
Medallion, Feb 2005, 6.99, 244 pp.
Sirena ran away from home as a young teen to escape the vicious beatings inflicted on her by her father. She moved in with Joe who had her make kiddie porn movies until she told him she wasn't going to do it anymore. Now she works as a stripper at Silky Femmes in a small out of the way Florida town.
Sirena also picks up men at the club and brings them to an isolated cabin. She has sex with them and at their moment of climax she kills them. She takes their bones and makes furniture out of them but the police and a private detective are beginning to think she's a killer. Both the private detective and the police know she was the last person to see a john she picked up alive; the private detective thinks she might be a killer while the police officer wants to jump her bones. Sirena thinks that the owner of the strip club will make a good partner in her hobby but letting her in on her secret leads to a whole new set of problems for this killing machine.
