I read the first book (The Emperor's Blades) a few months ago and I just could not put it down, I have to know what happened next and I was so disappointed when I realized that I would need to wait to read the next one, now while roming goodreads I see that the next one in the series, The Providence of Fire has been published and I am off to see if I can get my hands on a copy.
Has anyone else read the first one? Wasn't it great?
I would like to tell you about my crime novel series called 'Herbie Fox Stories'.

Have you ever wanted to bury a secret so deeply that no one will find out about it? With private security firms supplying bodyguards in every theatre of war, who will notice the emergence of a sexual psychopath from the ranks of the mercenaries? Amidst the turmoil of Sierra Leone's vicious civil war, the brutal murder of five women is of little consequence and no one questions the 'confessions' that were beaten out of three child soldiers. Except for Reuters correspondent Connie Burns. After witnessing a savage attack on a prostitute, Connie believes a foreigner's responsible. She has seen him before, and she suspects he uses the chaos of war to act out sadistic fantasies against women. Two years later in Iraq, the consequences of her second attempt to expose him are devastating. Terrified, degraded and destroyed, she goes into hiding in England where she strikes up a friendship with Jess Derbyshire, a loner whose reclusive nature may well be masking secrets of her own. Seeing parallels between herself and Jess, Connie borrows from the other woman's strength and makes the hazardous decision to attempt a third unmasking of a serial killer ...Knowing he will come looking for her ...
WOW! What a wonderful feeling to start the new year with a terrific psychological thriller from Minette Walters.
She presents two parallel stories: several older men are found murdered and the only thread connecting them is their homosexuality, that they live alone and may be former soldiers.
The predominant plot circles around Lt. Charles Acland an Iraqi vet who is devastatingly injured in an ambush explosion that killed his men. Half of his face is burned off including his eye. But when he comes out of his coma he also has a new personality.
I don't want to give away anymore, except to say that I gave this **** which is very high on my rating scale.
The book will be in stores in the US in Jan. 9
