Books 4,5 and 6 of THE DETECTIVE KUBU COLLECTION

Assistant Superintendent David 'Kubu' Bengu of the Botswana Criminal Investigation Department returns to solve a series of dark, devastating crimes that run deep into the heart of the community and far, far beyond ... Sunshine Noir at its very finest...

BOOK ONE - Deadly Harvest

Finalist for the Best Paperback Original Novel at the International Thriller Writers Award


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...

BOOK TWO - A Death in the Family

'There's no easy way to say this, Kubu. Your father's dead. I'm afraid he's been murdered.'


Faced with the violent death of his own father, even Assistant Superintendent David 'Kubu' Bengu, Botswana CID's keenest mind, is baffled. Who would kill such a frail old man? The picture becomes even murkier with the apparent suicide of a government official. Are Chinese mine-owners involved? And what role does the US Embassy have to play?

Set amidst the dark beauty of modern Botswana, A Death in the Family is a thrilling insight into a world of riots, corruption and greed, as a complex series of murders present the opera-loving, wine connoisseur detective with his most challenging case yet.

When grief-stricken Kubu defies orders and sets out on the killers' trail, startling and chilling links emerge, spanning the globe and setting a sequence of shocking events in motion.

Will Kubu catch the killers in time ... and find justice for his father?

BOOK THREE - Dying To Live


When the body of a Bushman is discovered near the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the death is written off as an accident. But all is not as it seems. An autopsy reveals that, although he's clearly very old, his internal organs are puzzlingly young. What's more, an old bullet is lodged in one of his muscles ... but where is the entry wound?

When the body is stolen from the morgue and a local witch doctor is reported missing, Detective 'Kubu' Bengu gets involved. Kubu and his brilliant young colleague, Detective Samantha Khama, follow the twisting trail through a confusion of rhino-horn smugglers, foreign gangsters and drugs manufacturers. And the deeper they dig, the wider and more dangerous the case becomes...

A fresh, new slice of 'Sunshine Noir', Dying to Live is a classic tale of greed, corruption and ruthless thuggery, set in one of the world's most beautiful landscapes, and featuring one of crime fiction's most endearing and humane heroes.

A wonderful, original voice - McCall Smith with a dark edge and even darker underbelly' Peter James

'My favourite writing duo since Ellery Queen' Ragnar Jónasson

'It kept me guessing, and it kept me gasping at its many twists and surprises' R.L. Kline

'Richly atmospheric ... a gritty depiction of corruption and deception' Publishers Weekly

'Compelling and deceptively written ...' New York Journal of Books
