Strange Gods:A Mystery
The first in a new series, Alfieri's latest mystery (after Blood Tango, 2013) is set in early 20th century British East Africa. Vera McIntosh, the daughter of Scottish missionaries, longs to see the handsome police officer she recently danced with. Grisly circumstances--the murder of her uncle--soon bring Justin Tolliver to her family's home. Justin's boss wants him to pin the murder on the local medicine man. But Justin doesn't think he did it. Can he prove it in time? A romantic and engaging mystery that captures the beauty and danger of the African wild.
