Sibanda and the Death's Head Moth

Sibanda and the Death's Head Moth

‘Fans of Alexander McCall Smith will love Scotty Elliott’s Sibanda series’ Sunday Times (SA)

Detective Sibanda and Sergeant Ncube are back!

Two bodies are discovered near Gubu, one burning at the base of a tree struck by lightning and, on the banks of the Zambezi, a second killing which threatens to tear Detective Sibanda’s life apart. The victims are not connected as one is a foreign wildlife researcher and the other a local driver, but Sibanda’s intuition tells him the murders are linked. The only clues are a fragment of material found in the brain of one victim, a puncture wound in the thigh of the other, and a diary full of coded names.

As the men investigate further, they find links to an ivory smuggling gang and in their pursuit of the killer, Sibanda and Ncube not only have to cope with their temperamental Landrover, their chief inspector’s lack of cooperation, but a rough and remote landscape full of wild and dangerous adventure.

Reviews

Fans of Alexander McCall Smith will love Scotty Elliott's Sibanda series . . . They have the same dry humour and warmth as the No1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories, the same palpable affection for the people and the landscape, and detectives who solve crimes more by hunch and legwork than with forensics and technology
Sunday Times (SA)
Her plot keeps readers guessing right to the end, when the monster meets a truly satisfying fate . . . Elliott's skill as a writer lies in her ability to create and flesh out characters that are so lifelike, they thrum in your head for days after finishing her books
