C M Elliott

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Detective Sibanda, Crime & mystery

The first novel in a new series, introducing shrewd DI Jabulani Sibanda: a highly-knowledgeable, bush-savvy policeman, stationed at a village on the borders of Zimbabwe National Park.

'Fans of Alexander McCall Smith will love Scotty Elliott's Sibanda series. . . Sunday Times

When a gruesomely vulture-mutilated corpse is found in the Park near Thunduluka Lodge, DI Jabulani Sibanda - a hard-boiled, bush-loving, instinctive crime fighter - is on the case.

With Sibanda are his sidekicks: Sergeant Ncube, an overweight, digestively challenged, severally married angler and mechanical genius, and Miss Daisy, an ancient, truculent and eccentric Land Rover that is the bane of Sibanda's life and the love of Ncube's.

Sibanda and Ncube pursue the investigation in the African bush following the mysterious clues they found at the crime scene: tyre tracks, a knife inscribed with the letter 'B', and a sliver of blue metallic car paint...

Praise for SIBANDA AND THE RAINBIRD:

'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' Business Live
