This series is notable for its gentle tone, its sympathetic characters, the methodical unraveling of the core mystery, and topical themes. Earlier novels in the series have addressed xenophobia, illegal immigration, human trafficking, genetically modified crops, real estate development, truffle fraud, fois gras, PETA and the ETA. Resistance Man incorporates themes of prejudice against homosexuals, abortion, the longing for family and government corruption. And as always, there are the ever present family feuds, politics, testing of loyalties, and the struggle to reconcile legal, pragmatic and moral solutions. The only frustration is that we'll have to wait another year for the next installment.
The sensitivity and brilliance of the rugby playing chief of police is awesome! Smart man that does not put his foot in his mouth. You cant help but like Bruno and his village. I can't tell you how much I enjoy reading about a man that is does not degrade women but instead loves smart and independent women. Thank you
