Mystery & Suspense • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

South Africans Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip, whose pen name is Michael Stanley, weave a complicated story of murder in this second mystery featuring Botswana detective David Bengu. The large Bengu, whose nickname is Kubu—Tswanan for “hippopotamus”—is the heart and soul of this novel. Simon Prebble narrates with obvious affection for the character of Kubu and the nation of Botswana. In a full, sonorous voice, Prebble brings to life a wide range of unique characters and the fascinating lands of Botswana and its neighbors, South Africa and Zimbabwe. Together, Stanley and Prebble weave the threads of history, politics, culture, and murder into a tale that will intrigue fans of THE NUMBER ONE LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY and those who enjoy mysteries with exotic settings.
