Tamar Myers returns to Africa in The Headhunter's Daughter, the second book in her wonderful mystery series set in the Belgian Congo in the mid-twentieth century--a riveting and atmospheric follow-up to The Witchdoctor's Wife. Raised in the Congo herself, the child of missionaries, Myers uses her intimate knowledge of the people, the culture, and the landscape to add richness to this stunning story of an abandoned infant raised by a tribe of headhunters--a masterful mystery that fans of Alexander McCall Smith and The #1 Ladies' Detective Agency will adore.

Love this book/series. My suggestion is to read them in order: I read book #3 first because I didn't realize it was part of a series. The books stand alone, but you get a better sense of character development if you read them in order [so read The Witchdoctor's Wife first]

This book is so quirky and really really funny. Transports you to another time and place.

Second in a new series for Myers, raisied in the former Belgian Congo. Gives a real feel for the time and setting (1950's), humorous and quirky.
