Translated from the Setswana term Kotsi Mosadi, there are two Danger Women in this gripping
tale: one a hyena, the alpha of her Chobe Game Park pack, the other, the mistress of a Russian
Bratva leader intent on controlling the region’s high-end tourist trade. In the conclusion of
Fredrick Ramsay’s Botswana trilogy the interplay of predator and prey, the unpredictability of
con;icting interests, and the heartlessness of the Bratva culture collide to upend an otherwise
ordinary night on the Chobe River.
In this edgy political thriller akin to House of Cards, ambitious Josie Kendall considers herself
a savvy player on the rise in D.C. circles of in;uence. When shadowy grey market hustler and
aspiring crony capitalist Jerzy Schroeder is murdered while Josie is hitting him up for a million
dollars to help him cash in on alternative energy funding, the police suspect her of adultery and
her husband, Rafe, of homicide.
Bob Patterson considers himself an Everyman—albeit an Everyman with a rich, beautiful wife,
two good kids, and a mail-it-in job that ignores his law degree. An ordinary guy who is suddenly
thrust into an extraordinary situation when his father-in-law, Sam—a kind of Kansas City, Missouri, Warren Bu;et—dies and Bob ;nds himself appointed trustee of Sam’s personal fortune
and worse, thanks to a quirk in the current IRS rules, in charge of his newly widowed mother-in-law’s money as well. Sam’s death and his new role promise to upend the life of Everyman Bob.
Peppered with sardonic commentary throughout, this darkly comic debut turns the mystery
genre upside down.
