About the Book
When a skinned body is discovered on the side of the railway line deep in the Matabele bush, Detective Inspector Jabulani Sibanda, along with his sidekicks, Sergeant Ncube and the troublesome Land Rover, Miss Daisy, are back on the trail of a murderer. As more girls go missing and more bones are discovered by the tracks, Sibanda realises they are dealing with a vicious serial killer who chooses the train as his killing field. Suspects are abound, and the trio pursues the leads relentlessly, but the warped psychopath is elusive.
Has Sibanda met his match? To complicate matters, his unrequited love interest, Berry Barton, is back on his radar, Gubu Police Station politics are as partisan as ever and Sgt Ncube, in an attempt to equal the brilliance of his boss, has discovered the wonders of the Oxford English Dictionary, to hilarious results. With winter tightening its grisp, and drought and hardship threatening the population, Sibanda uses a risky strategy to trap his nemesis. Can he pull if off? The adventures come thick, fast and furious, punctuated by Sibanda’s explosive sarcasm and Ncube’s explosive gut, as once again we are plunged into the wildlife world that Miss Daisy tolerates, the detective revels in and the sergeant fears so desperately.
