A novel by

 
 
Like Alexander McCall Smith's ever-popular No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels, The Boy Who Stole the Leopard's Spots immerses readers in a breathtaking African landscape they simply will not wish to leave. For the third time, author Tamar Myers carries readers a world away from Charleston, South Carolina, and her Den of Antiquity cozy mysteries - circling the globe to the Belgian Congo in equatorial Africa in the 1950s. The Boy Who Stole the Leopard's Spots is a wonderfully engrossing, breathtakingly evocative return to the lush locale of her previous acclaimed African-set mysteries, The Witchdoctor's Wife ('[A] mesmerizing novel..Authentic. Powerful. Triumphant' - Carolyn Hart) and The Headhunter's Daughter - as a monsignor of the Catholic church, shamed by a secret event in his past and accused of a terrible crime, must join forces with an American missionary, a police chief, and a witchdoctor and his wise-woman wife to clear his name.
