Bookish Review: The Leopard's Prey
The Leopard's Prey is part of an interesting series featuring protagonist Jade del Cameron. The book is set in British East Africa (Kenya) in the 1920s. Jade is a photographer, writer, and animal wrangler, as well as an amateur detective. When a man is found murdered on her friends' property and her love interest is accused, she must get to the bottom of the murder. The book has an interesting setting (in terms of time and place) and an interesting protagonist--very independent and unusual for the 1920s, to say the least. It's definitely a book I was able to put down, but it was an enjoyable read nonetheless.
