A Bit of African Sun

Michael Stanley–two writers who write under a single name–will be at Magers & Quinn to read from their second novel The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu Friday, June 5, at 7:30pm.

Normally a peaceful wilderness retreat, the Jackalberry bush camp has suddenly become a ghastly crime scene–and the details are still emerging when Detective David “Kubu” Bengu is assigned to the case. Zimbabwean teacher Goodluck Tinubu and another tourist have been found bludgeoned to death, while another guest at the camp–rumored to be a dissident wanted in Zimbabwe–has disappeared without a trace.

Michael Stanley is the writing team of Johannesburg natives Michael Sears and Stanley Trollip. Sears lives in Johannesburg and teaches part-time at the University of Witwatersrand. Trollip was on the faculty at the universities of Illinois, Minnesota, and North Dakota, and at Capella University. A full-time writer, he divides his time between South Africa and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
