9780060805876: Murder on Safari

Lord and Lady Baradale, on a posh safari in Kenya, anticipate splendid photo trophies for their luxurious labors. But rather than collecting trophies, they gave some up.

When Lady Baradale's jewels are stolen, a young Canadian policeman, Vachell, is called in. He sets to work on the theft, but is interrupted by murder. Lady Baradale's body is discovered with a bullet hole in the skull. Every member of the hunting party is suspect.

"Elspeth Huxley does not rely for effect simply on the unusual nature of her Kenyan setting. She has woven a complicated web of clue and counter-clue, clever enough to entrance and entangle even the most experienced detective fan." (The Times, London)

Product Description:

Canadian Superintendent Vachell, of Chania CID, is called to Lady Baradale's luxury Kenyan safari camp to investigate the disappearance of her jewels. He found himself ostensibly hired as assistant white hunter to the intrepid Danny de Mare. Within hours, Lady Baradale is murdered, despite Vachell's presence, and so he has another mystery to solve. The party continues to search for game to shoot and an attempt on Vachell's life fails; he has to unravel clues from wherever he can on this safari.
