‘Impressive . . . The intricate plotting, a grisly sense of realism and numerous topical motifs make this a compulsively readable novel’ Publishers Weekly

The second in the fantastic crime series, featuring connoisseur Assistant Superintendant David ‘Kubu’ Bengu of the Botswana Police Force.

When a mutilated body is found at a tourist camp in northern Botswana, the corpse displays the classic signs of a revenge killing. But when fingerprints are analysed Detective ‘Kubu’ makes a shocking discovery: the victim is already dead. He was slain in the Rhodesian war thirty ago.

Kubu soon realises that nothing at the camp is as it seems. And as the guests are picked off one by one, time is running out. With rumours of horrifying war crimes, the scent of a drug-smuggling trail and mounting pressure from his superiors to contend with, Kubu forgets there is one door left unguarded – his own. And as he sets a trap to find a murderer, the hunters are closing in on him…

‘I’m fascinated by Africa and now I really want to visit Botswana. Through this book, I’ve come to love the people there, and fall totally for the main character’ Louise Penny, New York Times bestselling author of the Chief Inspector Gamache novels
