I just stood there, completely frozen as the smiling man crept toward me. And then he stopped again, about a car length away from me.
Still smiling his smile, still looking to the sky. When I finally found my voice, I blurted out the first thing that came to mind. What I meant to ask was, "What do you want?!
What came out was a whimper: "Whaaat…? Regardless of whether or not humans can smell fear, they can certainly hear it.
I heard it in my own voice, and that only made me more afraid. But he didn't react to it at all. He just stood there, smiling. And then, after what felt like forever, he turned around, very slowly, and started dance-walking away.
Just like that. Not wanting to turn my back to him again, I just watched him go, until he was far enough away to almost be out of sight.
And then I realized something. He wasn't moving away anymore, nor was he dancing. I watched in horror as the distant shape of him grew larger and larger.
He was coming back my way. And this time he was running. I ran until I was off of the side-road and back onto a better lit road with sparse traffic.
Looking behind me then, he was nowhere to be found. The rest of the way home, I kept glancing over my shoulder, always expecting to see his stupid smile, but he was never there.
My Reply to him: I understand how hard and well you worked for these two books. If you continue to work hard, and fight for your true voice, you will continue with your extraordinary success.

And I really enjoyed the second. Aidan is damaged goods. But then the two of them come across a dead man in The Palace, a closed hotel.
There are multiple crimes Waits is investigating, no 4. There are multiple crimes Waits is investigating, not all of them as part of his job,which further infuriates his boss.
The multiple investigations keep both Aidan and us on our toes. The book can feel convoluted at times with everything going on.
It demands attention. And it is dark! It perfectly encompasses the nastiness of the darker sides of Manchester in the grips of a recession.
And it also touches on all sorts of ethical issues, such as stepping outside the law to protect the vulnerable. It engaged me from almost the first page.
The writing is well done, not overly flowery but imaginative. I found I kept wanting to read just one more chapter. And the ending took me totally by surprise.
My Thanks to netgalley and Crown Publishing for an advance copy of this books. View all 8 comments. I wiped my face with my forearm, eyes not leaving the shape.
As I came alongside him I saw that he was dead. Waits has landed at the very bottom of the detective food chain.
To go any lower, he would be unemployed. Waits has earned his way there. Doing the right thing proves to be very subjective indeed.
The night shift is full of the loneliest of the loneliest people. Most of his shifts are spent sorting the normal things that occur between drug dealers, hookers, and the rest of the disadvantaged people who have landed on the margins of society, but when he catches the murder of the grinning corpse, the Smiling Man, Aiden has no idea the attention this is going to bring to him and to his past.
To further compound his problems, a young woman has reported that she is being blackmailed for sex by a rich fuck named Oliver Cartwright.
He does it. How he fixes this problem will never show up in any policing manuel. Is it immoral? Well, all of you will just have to judge him for yourself.
Sometimes you confound expectations, sometimes you grow into the thing that people think you are. As his indiscretions come to light, not in a provable way but certainly where there is smoke with Aiden there is always fire, his boss knows without knowing that Waits pulled a Waits on Cartwright.
The moment he is canned, the protection he enjoys as a cop will dissipate, letting loose the hounds of retribution. Needless to say, Waits has made a plethora of very powerful enemies.
Now you would think that this Damocles sword looming over his head would keep Detective Aiden Waits flying straight and playing it safe.
Dare he say his name? We learn about his flawed character in Sirens , but in The Smiling Man we discover the true reasons behind his struggles with addiction and his quest for justice by whatever means.
His past could have made him a bad man intent on hurting other people, all people, but it turns out he inflicts the worst punishments upon himself.
Knox is certainly writing the next generation of British Noir with hardboiled characters and gritty plots that are tough and cynical enough to fit seamlessly in a James A.
Cain, Dashiell Hammett, or a Cornell Woolrich novel. The third Aiden Waits book has just been released this month and is titled The Sleepwalker.

Clever, funny, with staggeringly layered and conflicted characters, this is unmissable storytelling. Thei Of course 5 stars, what else would it be??
Their partnership bounces from passive aggressive acts of minor irritation to outright hostility, but provide nothing less than comedy gold for the reader.
Together they make a surprisingly efficient team as they go from investigating seemingly random dustbin fires to murder.
Once again, the disparate tendrils of the plot wind ever tighter, until the stunning conclusion awes you with its brutal clarity.
Yet there is no pretty bow on top, Knox is a master of messy humanity and you are under no illusion that things were always going to go this way.
Waits is a perfect example of this- the revelations about his past both explain and contradict who he is now, making you wonder what could have been.
Despite spending two books with him, he remains unknowable, and leaves you desperate for more answers. I truly cannot wait for more.
Brilliant reading, but make sure you pick up Sirens first. ARC via Netgalley View all 5 comments.

A young girl being blackmailed, an unidentifiable dead man in a seedy hotel where a security guard rents rooms to call girls, drug dealers and physical attacks are some of his woes.
Thankfully Aidan is able to put pieces into their proper places and bring some order to life. Knox offers an interesting take to these fastballs, curveballs and knuckleballs.
It is up to the reader to keep an eye on the ball or Knox will slip one by you. I received an advance copy of this book from Netgalley.
This did not effect my review of this book. Dec 23, Liz Barnsley rated it it was amazing. Brilliant writing, brilliant characters, top notch storytelling with a heart of darkness and an emotional resonance rarely found in crime novels.
Sirens was good. Very very good. This is another level. Loved loved it. Descriptively speaking this is hard hitting and has a truly gripping authentic edge — following Aidan through the night shift with his erstwhile partner Sutcliffe, a strong sense of place sits right within the story, the dialogue sparkles with a gritty realism and you ju Incredible.
Aidan Waits as a character is endearingly engaging, which is a strange way of describing someone who is seemingly all but broken — but in both Sirens and The Smiling Man the author is building us a picture — of a man who life has happened to, who has allowed life to happen to him.
His strength comes from unexpected places, you feel as if you have only just hit the surface layers, despite all that has happened since we met him for the first time in Sirens.
Like Sirens, The Smiling Man broke me. Bring on many years and many books is what I say. Highly Recommended. View 1 comment. Sep 09, Monica rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley , give-aways.
I was quite surprised at the final outcome. You could definitely follow this story without the background of the first.
I recommend this book to all thriller and crime readers. While I enjoyed the first book "Sirens" from Mr. Knox, I freaking loved this book!
It's just as grimy and gritty as I imagine some parts of Manchester would be, and I admit that with my intense dislike of cities, that I would avoid going there at all costs.
I'm a country mouse! This is Mr. Knoxs' second book, but he reads like a seasoned pro! I thought Aiden and Sutty were the perfect team.
They didn't seem to like each other much, but they're growing into it. Aiden is a bit broken, yet he's ful While I enjoyed the first book "Sirens" from Mr.
Aiden is a bit broken, yet he's full of strength and compassion. Well he's full of dark humor, caustic wit and he made me laugh, guffaw and snort.
I love that! I thought they make a perfect team. As for the mystery? It's intriguing from the start, and only gets better.
You'll have to discover it all on your own. I started this book last night and finished it 6 hours later. That almost never happens. So, yes I highly recommend this book and author.

In brief - Without doubt a "best of year" book - where's that 6th star when you need it! I'd not come across this author, Joseph Knox, before however I quickly found his first book Sirens had collected some very good reviews.
This one follows on from the first book although I didn't feel I was missing out on anything but not having read it but I have a copy now.
I quickly realised that they wer In brief - Without doubt a "best of year" book - where's that 6th star when you need it! I quickly realised that they were the perfect crime fighting duo - one untrusted and one appalling!
They are left to investigate a series of fires in dustbins. More by accident they are called to what turns out to be a real crime scene.
A deserted hotel appears to have been broken into. They find an injured security guard and a dead - smiling - man. This is a very twisty and twisted investigation and story.
Most of the time nothing is quite what it seems. Gradually things come together during the course of this deeply dark story.
Aidan - an excellent character - has to come to terms with demons of his own as well as the investigation.
Sutty is simply Sutty - not really come across a character quite like him before but he works very well indeed.
In addition to these two this book contains a character so deeply nasty; I don't recall reading one quite like this before.
There's violence here too and it is nasty sometimes in case that bothers you. I was immediately caught up in this story and found it very hard to put down.
The Manchester setting is good and well used. The main characters were very good indeed - vivid and well developed.
In particular the deep deep darkness in Aidan Waits is very effective in my mind. Rereading my notes that I took while reading this the word that keeps cropping up is "dark" and the book certainly is that.
However I like some good dark fiction. A couple of my favourites authors are Jo Nesbo and Tim Weaver - they both write dark and write it well.
Joseph Knox's writing is up there with them as far as I'm concerned. This is actually quite a simply story - it is very well told however.
I'll read the earlier book as soon as I can and I'll be at the front of the queue for the next one. One of the "books of the year" without question.

His senior partner is Sully Sutcliffe, who is putting up with him until he either quits or gets fired. Nothing good is expected from Aidan Waits.
The pair are called to answer a break-in alarm at an empty hotel in Manchester. Upon investigation, the detectives find an unconscious security guard an The Smiling Man by Joseph Knox is the second mystery in the Detective Aidan Waits series.
Upon investigation, the detectives find an unconscious security guard and a dead body in one of the rooms. The body was dressed in clothing without labels, his fingerprints and teeth had been removed and the corpse was smiling.
The identity of this man seems impossible to establish. Aidan Waits, who is expected to self-destruct anyways, takes on the case with great interest and drive.
There are numerous characters in this book but the story is fascinating to follow. You will never be able to predict what is on the next page.
I also look forward to reading Sirens, the first in the series by Joseph Knox. Pick up a copy of The Smiling Man and settle in for a great read.

It was also the fact that it was set in my home country, It's not often I pick a book upset in England. For some reason, it's not something I do very often.
Detective Aidan Waits is possible one of the most broken detectives I have come across in recent years. He is a man wrecked by his past and drug abuse, I found my self-wondering how he still functioned in his job.
He is a man driven to hunt out justice in whatever form crosses his past. This is also the source of much of his trouble, Being so headstrong leads him at times to leap before he thinks.
In a world of gangsters and crooks, he is a constant thorn in their sides. But for his many faults, he is very good at what he does.
A dark avenger in a city ravaged by a dark heart. Dragged along in his quest is Sutty who with the best will in the world should also probably not be a police officer.
He is an angry man who would seem to hate everyone he comes into contact with, This includes his partner. For Sutty's part, he just wants to write off this crime as a suicide and get back to doing as little as possible.
On his path to find the killer of the smiling man Aidan meets a cross-section of Manchester seeder underworld. From crooked and more than a little creepy club owner to the head of a crime family.
While they all seem a little larger than the life they fit perfectly within the constraints of the story. What the author gave me was a noir story in the very best tradition.
All the time I was reading this book it took me back to the books I had read growing up. With the likes of Chandler, Ellroy, and Hammett rolling around in my head reading this were like going back to spend time with these authors.
But Knox doesn't just copy these authors he not only gives it his own take but adds a healthy dose of Britishness to it.
The book flows to the rhythm of to those dark place that most would only see passing by in a taxi. He gives us a world of dirt and decay to which our hero feels right at home.
With such a premise the story was bound to only go a certain way. He digs down deeper into each chapter, slowly showing us not only the facts of the present but also delving into Aidan's own tragic past.
