The third book in a series about a Botswanan detective named David Bengu, nicknamed Kubu (Hippo) because of his large body and easy going nature. He is called by an old high school chum to help defend three Bushmen arrested for the murder of a game park warden, and once again becomes embroiled in a series of seemingly unrelated deaths, which are anything but. Left to die in the desert, Kubu survives and helps put together the various clues to find the killer and help bring him to justice for his crimes in over-aggressively defending a tribesmen way of life.
