Michael Genelin Synopsis: Siren of the Waters by Michael Genelin is the first book in the Commander Jana Matinova series. Jana started out in the Czechoslovak police force as young woman, married an actor, and became a mother. The Communist regime destroyed her husband, their love for one another, and her daughter’s respect for her. But that has not stopped her craving to find justice. Now, she has risen to the rank of commander with the Slovak police force and is now based in Bratislava – a crossroads of central Europe. She meets with colleagues across the continent to track a master criminal whose crimes include extortion, murder, kidnapping, and the operation of a large human trafficking network. This investigation takes her from Kiev in Ukraine to the headquarters of the European Community in Strasbourg, France; from Vienna to Nice during the Carnival, as she searches for a ruthless killer and the beautiful young Russian woman he is determined to either capture or destroy.
