Our Man in Mazita series

This series is separate from the Mpenzi Munro Cozy Mystery series. It is about an imaginary island off the coast of East Africa. The stories cover the life of a hard working diplomat who has taken on the responsibility of bringing up his three children, Poppy, Suze and Charlie. The tone is humorous verging on the satirical. The story "Something Rotten" does involve a crime and a murder but not in the traditional cozy sense. Please press the MAZITA tab above to go to the page that showcases this series.
