Deadly Harvest, Paperback / softback Book

Deadly Harvest Paperback / softback

Part of the Detective Kubu series

Paperback / softback

Description

A young girl goes missing after getting into a car with a mysterious man.

Soon after, a second girl disappears, and her devastated father, Witness, sets out to seek revenge.

As the trail goes cold, Samantha Khama - new recruit to the Botswana Criminal Investigation Department - suspects the girl was killed for muti, the traditional African medicine usually derived from plants, sometimes animals, and, recently and most chillingly, human parts. When the investigation gets personal, Samantha enlists opera-loving wine connoisseur Assistant Superintendent David 'Kubu' Bengu to help her dig into the past.

As they begin to discover a pattern to the disappearances, there is another victim, and Kubu and Samantha are thrust into a harrowing race to stop a serial killer who has only one thing in mind... '... a fascinating police procedural ... the most complex book in this series. Besides being an intricate crime puzzle that Kubu and his team must untangle, it also looks at societal issues' St Paul Pioneer Press 'Compelling and deceptively written...' New York Journal of Books 'Richly atmospheric ... a gritty depiction of corruption and deception' Publishers Weekly 'A wonderful, original voice - McCall Smith with a dark edge and even darker underbelly' Peter James 'Under the African sun, Michael Stanley's Detective Kubu investigates crimes as dark as the darkest of Nordic Noir.

Call it Sunshine Noir, if you will - a must read' Yrsa Sigurdardottir
