Makes the reader want to get straight to Botswana and have dinner with Kubu.

I loved this second adventure of the Botswanan detective, Kubu. It was as good as the first one. Again, the setting, the history of the area, and the modern-day problems plaguing this area of the world add to the readability of this story. Not only is this a well-thought out mystery, which will have you guessing until the end, but I learned so much about a country and its histroy I feel that I have been on a 2-week "safari" through Kubu's land. The characters are unique, multi-dimesional, and very relatable. The story is poignant and fascinating, making the reader question the very limited information we are given concerning the African continent. This would make a fantastic movie.

Asst. Superintendant Bengu is sent to Jackalberry island to investigate the murders of two guests. The mystery ensues from there. I do like the setting of this mystery. They travel all over Botswana and the author gives a good description of the island, the cities, the bush. It was fun and inspiring to look at a map and see where the novel takes you. Most of the characters are charming when they should be and unpleasant when called for. However, the story dragged on for 70 plus chapters. It was unnecessarily long and tedious. By the 3rd or 4th telling of what had really happened, I had lost interest and just wanted to get to the end of the book. It was about 100 pages too long.

Botswana Assistant Superintendent David "Kubu" Bengu investigates the murders of two men at the remote Jackalberry bush camp. Both Sipho Langa a black South African tourist and the Goodluck Tinubu were guests. The problem with the identification of the latter based on his fingerprints is that Goodluck died almost three decades ago during the Rhodesian civil war. The third Zimbabwean Ishmael Zondo has vanished with the cops assuming he is the killer on the run tying him to drug trafficking though camp manger Dupie says he took him to the airport. Bengu thinks otherwise as he feels Goodluck is the key to solving the homicides. So he is surprised that many people including his own father thought highly of Goodluck as a teacher. The case is going nowhere for him with the pressure upstairs to find the missing third guest and at home when his wife Joy is attacked. The second Kubu Botswana police procedural (see A CARRION DEATH) is a terrific whodunit that focuses on the investigation, but also showcases the author team's love of the landlocked South African country. In fact the leisure stroll through the countryside while making inquiries provides a deep look at this nation, but does take time from solving the case. Fans, especially those of The No.1 Ladies´ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith will enjoy this engaging "geographical" murder mystery as Michael Stanley provides a deep look into this democracy.
