In this, the fourth Detective Kubu mystery, a new character, detective Samantha Khama, joins the Botswana CID, the only female on the police force. And immediately shakes things up, insisting on an investigation into the disappearance of young girls. After initial misgivings, Kubu takes her under his wing, and together they uncover what appears to be the harvesting of human parts for muti, a witch doctor’s potion customarily made with plants and herbs and possibly animal parts, which is supposed to enhance a person’s power or luck. The plot follows one murder after another beginning with that of a leading opposition politician, followed by that of two young girls. Obviously a serial killer is at large, and Kubu and Samantha have their work cut out for them. This is a grisly story, rich in detail. Written by a team of two that is quite knowledgeable of southern Africa, they have created a memorable cast of characters, and it remains to be seen how they will develop this latest, terrific, addition to the Kubu series. Recommended.

Detective novel set in Botswana about witch doctor practices The fourth in the series, this detective story takes place in Botswana with Detective Kubu at the centre of the story. The plot involves several murders and some corruption in high places regarding witch doctor practices. The characters are well-defined and the plot builds up from the beginning as young girls go missing. Politics enters into the plot as parties vie for power. Kubu's family life plays an important part as well which makes a refreshing change. Enjoyable and engaging – I preferred this to the next in the series. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants an entertaining police procedural novel. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Michael Stanley/Kubu series set in Botswana is one of my favorite mystery series. The mystery moves at a good pace, with occasional interludes, in which one views Inspector Kubu's home life and his family's relationship with his aging but more traditional parents. Each of the mysteries has a theme connected with life in Botswana. In this case, the concern is over how a small subset of witch doctor's will use body parts taken from a human being in order to work their magic. Coincidently, from other sources, I had just been reading about how albinos live in fear of being prized and used in Tanzania. (This does come up in the mystery.) Interesting book that also serves as a learning experience.
