;The best book yet in one of the best series going: a serious novel with a mystery at its core that takes us places we've never been. ; -Timothy Hallinan, author of The Queen of Patpong Mystery readers who have not yet made the acquaintance of larger than life African investigator Detective David ;Kubu ; Bengu are doing themselves a great disservice. Death of the Mantis is the third Kubu novel from author Michael Stanley-following the critically acclaimed A Carrion Death and The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu-and it plunges the robust manhunter into the chaotic center of a murder case involving nomadic Bushmen that is stoking the fires of prejudice and tribal hatred. Set in Botswana-the fascinating equatorial country also explored by Alexander McCall Smith in his #1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels-Death of the Mantis is a book alive with the sights and sounds of an exotic and breathtaking land. The exploits of Stanley's singularly captivating policeman protagonist will delight you and keep you guessing.
