A Death in the Family by Michael Stanley

Detective novel set in Botswana but for Kubu, this time it’s personal!

The fifth in the series but the first for me, this detective story takes place in Botswana with Detective Kubu at the centre of the story. The plot involves several murders and some corruption in high places regarding a mining project.

The characters are well-defined but the book could have been shorter: it’s a bit drawn-out in the first half then accelerates towards the end. Enjoyable enough without being overwhelming and not particularly dark – which makes a pleasant change nowadays.

I’d recommend this to anyone who wants a basic but entertaining detective novel. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
