The national best-selling author of the Legion of the Damned novels, "a must-read for any fan of Mil Fic," (Archaeologist's Guide to the Galaxy) begins a brand new science fiction police procedural series...In the year 2038, an act of bioengineered terrorism decimated humanity. Those who survived were either completely unaffected or developed horrible mutations. Across the globe, nations are now divided between areas populated by "norms" and lands run by "mutants" - Detective Cassandra Lee of Los Angeles's Special Investigative Section has built a fierce reputation taking down some of the city's most notorious criminals. But the serial cop killer known as Bonebreaker - who murdered Lee’s father - is still at large. Officially, she’s too personally involved to work on the Bonebreaker case.
Unofficially, she's going to hunt him to the ends of the earth. In the meantime, duty calls when the daughter of Bishop Screed, head of the Church of Human Purity, is kidnapped by mutants and taken into the red zone to be used for breeding. Assigned to rescue her, Lee must trust her new partner - mutant lawman Deputy Ras Omo - to guide her not only through the unfamiliar territory but through the prejudicial divisions between mutants and norms....

Also China Miéville, Peter Hamilton, good space-opera, No Zombies, Apocalypses, Women who sigh and go weak at the knees when seeing a man!
I highly recommend this book as the start of a new series.
It is both well written and directed, the storyline is fast paced and, if not completely original, it's a new take on an idea that's been around before. (Mutated and non- mutated humans sharing a world.)
I really like Cassandra, a truly strong female character who doesn't act like a man or like a good little girl but is a fully functioning female Police Officer in this world. I'm looking forward to seeing her again soon!!
Note I almost Never give 5 stars.
Unfortunately the next book In this series is not here yet! Cannot wait for it to arrive.
This new world post bioengineering terrorism is very interesting and has a lot of potential. But the plague doesn't make sense, it is a little bit over the top, I am not sure the author is interested in the 'science' part.
The character development of detective Cassandra Lee ( very much acting as a Lone Wolf " need to be polish. Nothing make her attractive or lovable.
The bone breaker character is an interesting.
This audiobook is for a light listening time and quick consumption.
