"Stages & Thieves" by Danielle-Claude Ngontang Mba is Book 5 in the Semya Slotin Mystery series. Of all the books in the series, this is by far my favourite. You can't go wrong reading any of the books by this author. Her stories are interesting and the characters well drawn. What I loved about the the Semya Slotin Mystery books is that her characters are different than the usual in similar genres. I read it all in one sitting and I'd advise, if you haven't already, to check out her earlier mystery books. A good read like this and a cup of tea make even the coldest day seem warm and bright. And as usual, every-time I finish one of Danielle's books - I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
