4.0 out of 5 stars Murder for power 25 Jun 2010
By Marie Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dig into the social and political machinations of Kenyan politics during the empire, when there was talk of joining colonies under one administration. This is a who-done-it involving characters of great interest, the sometimes oddball, sometimes absolutely correct characters who lived and governed in Kenya before independence. Elspeth Huxley does it again, writing a mystery based on her knowledge of Kenya and its inhabitants, and the machinations of the society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic murder mystery in an unusual setting, 2 Jun 2013
By John A. Lefcourte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a classic British murder mystery set in a Kenya-like setting. I've recently been reading Elspeth Huxley's biographical accounts and love her writing. She really conveys, perfectly, a sense of place. So this is a classic British mystery with a fantastic overlay of Huxley's sense of place as well as having characters who, based on my reading of British period works, seem to be very well delineated. I've read mysteries for 60 years, my Mother was a big fan, but had given them up, lately, as being empty calories. However, Huxley's hooked me.
