I happened to read a mystery set in South Africa this summer and thoroughly enjoyed both learning about life during the 1950s and apartheid. It reminded me of some other mysteries I’ve read set in this confusing-to-me continent.
Here are some suggestions:
James McClure (the father of So. African mysteries)
A Beautiful Place to Die by Malla Nunn (1st in the series)
Redbreast by Jo Nesbo (So. Africa)
Dead before Dying by Deon Meyer (So. Africa)
Carrion Death by Michael Stanley (Botswana)
Morbid Symptoms by Gillian Slovo (So. Africa)
Bloody Harvests by Richard Kunzmann
Dead Man’s Share by Yasmina Khadra (Algiers)
Wife of the Gods by Kwei Quartey (Ghana)
Do you have any other suggestions that fit this category?
