Faced with the violent death of his own father, Assistant Superintendent David 'Kubu' Bengu, the smartest detective in the Botswana police, is baffled. Who would kill such a frail old man? Kubu's frustration grows as his boss, Director Mabaku, bans him from being involved in the investigation. 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?

I have read all the books in the series and have enjoyed them all. Not so much with this one.

This series is set not in Mma Ramotswe's Botswana but a more gritty and presumably less idealized version. The class between traditional values and global mining interests was particularly interesting in this book in the series.
