"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

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.
