HARPERCOLL

“The African Columbo….Like the first book to feature Kubu, A Carrion Death, this is a smart, satisfyingly complex mystery. [Grade] A.”
Entertainment Weekly

 

The second book in the Inspector Kubu series—penned by a pair of Crime Writers’ Association Award-winning South African authors writing under the name Michael Stanley—The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu treats readers to a gripping and atmospheric  story of money, murder, and hidden motives at a remote bush camp in northern Botswana. Set in a country immortalized by Alexander McCall Smith in his The #1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novels, The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu again features an unforgettable lead character the New York Times Book Review calls, “Hugely appealing—big and solid and smart enough to grasp all angles of [a] mystery.”

SECOND BOOK IN THE DETECTIVE KUBU SERIES

c

Jan 10, 2012

This is book #2 in a mystery series featuring Assistant Superintendent David (Kubu) Bengu of the Botswana Criminal Investigation Department; this book’s better than was the first one in the series and has a suitably complex plot; like the first book, this book is imbued with local atmosphere that adds to the reader’s enjoyment and is not a superfluous addition that just gets in the way as is so often the case; this is the US edition and actually I read the UK edition (renamed “A Deadly Trade” to give away less of the plot); the UK edition is not so heavily Americanized as this US edition is likely to be; if I had to wade through all those irrelevant Americanisms I would probably give the book a much lower rating; I would read the next one in the series but I again would try to read the UK edition.
