A stunning debut crime novel set against a backdrop of poachers, witch doctors, diamond smugglers and corruption... They find the first body near a waterhole considered magical by the local bush people.
A string of clues suggests that the victim was murdered and his identity hidden.
For Assistant Superintendent David Kubu Bengu, it's obvious from the start that sinister forces are at work.
A convivial figure on the surface, Kubu is a clever and resourceful lawman, well-versed in Botswana's deadliest secrets.
As he follows a blood-soaked trail he uncovers a chain of crimes linked to the most powerful figures in the country - influential enemies who will stop at nothing to remove those who stand in their way...
