The Shining Girls PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Shining Girls free pdf Napoleon Bones police dog, gourmet, Cape Town crime fighter. Not your average pavement special. Aside from being a culinary expert and a thinking woman's companion, he's one half of an all-rescues K9 unit tasked to help track down the notorious Blackjacks gang. Their search takes Bones and his partner, the ginger-haired cycling enthusiast Rusty Gordon, from the streets of the Bo Kaap to the trails of Table Mountains and the backyards of the Cape Flats, all the while investigating perlemoen poaching and dog fights, rescuing terrified people from dangerous situations, and saving many a damsel (and doe-eyed bitch) in distress. Jenny Hobbs's hilarious crime-thriller spoof is a smorgasbord of delectable characters. This is a Cape Town you won't find in any tourist book.
