This series has been f...

This series has been fantastic. The first book "The first Rule of Survival" set up all of the characters, and what makes them tick. The second book "The Serpentine Road" really started to bring everything together. It is this third book in the series "The History of Blood" where the flow of this police procedure series begins to shine like you knew it would. Take what for many readers is an unknown country (South Africa, specifically Cape Town), add in all of the politics regarding the post apartheid government, exceptionally well crafted storytelling, truly evil bad guys, and a cop who is always thinking about the victim and will do anything to get the criminal, and you have a wonderful ( 3 books so far) series. The next book in the series is rumored to be coming in October. All three books are available on Kindle, or you can buy the paperbacks from Book Depository.
