I've been very much looking forward to this book, having really enjoyed A CARRION DEATH which was the first book from South African duo Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip.

From the Blurb:

How Can a Man Die Twice?  That's the question facing Detective 'Kubu' Bengu when a mutilated body is found at a tourist camp in northern Botswana.  The corpse of Goodluck Tinubu displays the classic signs of a revenge killing.  But when his fingerprints are analysed Kubu makes a shocking discovery:  Tinubu is already dead.  He was slain in the Rhodesian war thirty years ago.

Opening Lines:

The farewells had been said many years ago, so Goodluck hugged his old comrade and left without a word.  He zipped the tent door closed and started along the path to his own bush tent.  The waning half-moon had risen; he was glad he did not need his flashlight.  Goodluck came to a fork.  Straight ahead the path led past the centre of Jackalberry Camp to the guest tents on the other side.
