Praise for Michael Stanley Bundle: A Carrion Death & The 2nd Death of Goodluck Tinubu…


“A first novel saturated with local color. . . . Readers may be lured to Africa by the landscape, but it takes a great character like Kubu to win our loyalty.”
-New York Times Book Review

“More smart than bloody. . . . A marvelous debut.”
-Boston Globe

“Delightful. . . . Plot twists are fair and well-paced, the Botswana setting has room to breathe and take shape as its own entity, and Stanley’s writing style is equal parts sprightly and grave.”
-Los Angeles Times Book Review

“[An] impressive debut. . . . The intricate plotting, a grisly sense of realism and numerous topical motifs . . . make this a compulsively readable novel. . . . This fast-paced forensic thriller will resonate . . . with fans of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
