Full of adventure and intrigue, the Sibanda detective trilogy by CM Elliot has now been optioned to be produced as a television series.

But while we wait for that, immerse yourself in the world of Detective Inspector Jabulani Sibanda, a bush-savvy policeman stationed at Gubu police station, in a large village on the borders of a national park in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe.
