Item description for The Devil in the Bush (Dr. Mary Finney Mysteries) by Matthew Head...

The first in the Dr. Mary Finney quartet World War II is raging, but in this dusty backwater of the Belgian Congo the most pressing problem is finding a cold beer. That's the case at least for Hooper Taliaferro, a genial U.S. government flunkey sent to Africa on a vague errand related to the war effort. What he finds at the failing Congo-Ruizi plantation won't help the Allies much. Like colonialism itself, the owner is dying of a slow poison, and neither his bitter, round-heeled wife nor the plantation's manager, drowning in booze and mysterious guilt, can muster the energy to care. But along with Hooper arrives Dr. Mary Finney, a formidable missionary with both moral outrage and sleuthing skills to spare. A cross between Chekhov and Agatha Christie, Devil in the Bush introduces Dr. Finney as a sort of blunt-spoken Yankee Miss Marple, with likeable, lightweight Hooper -- the series narrator -- standing by as her faithful scribe.
